Default Re: Gerry Cooney - the hardest puncher ever?

All kinds of good points.

My one quibble: That was loaded. That was so loaded as to almost be telegraphed.

Gerry hit like a truck. Top flight power, but that hook had shoulder, hip, and thigh behind it. Perfect mechanics.

The shot he needed to land repeatedly against Larry Holmes, but just wasn't smart or skilled enough to make it happen.
