The thing about Cooney was he could hook under and over with his left hand as most guys can just hook to the head or the body effectively but not both. He was a very dangerous fighter and because of his awful management we did not get to see him against the other contenders many of whom were not in a rush to fight him either especially after the Norton fight and that savage KO.
When he was very good/good, only Tillis dropped him, and that was minorly debatable.

When this thread was initially started a few years ago, I went with Page.. Now I'm not so sure. On the surface it certainly looks as though page had the right boxing style and set of physical tools to beat Cooney, but the flipside is that he was also beaten by a lot of shit fighters. Who knows?
