NYSAC Profile — Gerry Cooney
Boxing aficionados old enough to remember will certainly never forget the evening of November 6, 1982. That night, New York’s own Gerry Cooney, the top-ranked contender for the world heavyweight title, fought champion Larry Holmes in Las Vegas in one of the most hyped heavyweight title matches in history.
Cooney, a native of Huntington, NY, where he still resides with his wife and three children, fought gamely throughout the scheduled 15-round bout against Holmes in a contest that exceeded expectations. After being knocked down briefly in the second round, Cooney went blow for blow against the “Easton Assassin,” providing him with the hardest test of his career up until that point, and was even ahead on all three judges’ scorecards before points were deducted for low blows in round 10. The more experienced Holmes wore down Cooney and in round 13, Cooney’s trainer stepped into the ring and the fight was stopped on a technical knockout. No matter what the outcome was, no one could beat this contender’s heart. More »
