Cooney has the best chance because he had such a brutally powerful left hook, and he knew how to land it with authority. If Cooney should land his left hook with full force, I think he'd actually have a very good chance at knocking Wlad out in similar fashion as Corrie Sanders.
That scenario would likely only happen like 2 or 3 out of 10 times, but it is still possible. It's much more likely that Wlad comes out and assumes control of Gerry with his jab and eventually grinds him down. It would be interesting seeing Wlad face such a hard punching foe that's taller than he is, though.
interesting IMO (pre-Holmes minus the 2-year layoff )Cooney may have been able to pull it off vs the cold and overconfident Vlad that fought Sanders but I think the present version play it very safe and waits until the fragile Cooney is ripe for the pick
