Default Re: What if Gerry Cooney had somehow gotten lucky against Spinks?

Bum,

OOOHHH!! Ouch........ Cooney was psyched after kayoing Norton in '81...... Yet, it 'twas misleading....... Larry Holmes brought team Cooney back down to Earth in 1982........

But yes, I agree 100%......... Cooney would've KO'd Mike Weaver in 1982.......

Holmes was too GREAT to lose to Cooney in 1982.......

Even though Cooney was rich and banging bitches and doin' lines of coke in 1986 / '87, I still thought he'd pound Mike Spinks enroute to a 4th round KO in 1987........ I lost money in a pool at work...... ARGH!!
