Default Re: Gerry Cooney - the hardest puncher ever?

Here's an excerpt from a Sports Illustrated article on Cooney from 1987:

"Later in his career, when sparring partner Harold Rice showed him up at an exhibition at Gilley's bar in Pasadena, Texas, Cooney offered Rice $1,500 from his pocket to entice him back into his training camp, where he annihilated him, breaking two ribs with one left hook, an eardrum with another and Rice's nose with a right cross, and leaving him paralyzed below the waist for several days"
