Gerry Cooney is one of the world’s most colorful and beloved heavyweight boxers. Born in Manhattan in 1956, Cooney was raised in Huntington, Long Island. He began his amateur career in 1971 at the age of 15 and quickly established a name, building a record of 55-3. Cooney began boxing professionally in 1977 and racked up 25 consecutive wins. In 1982, he earned a shot at undefeated WBC heavyweight champion Larry Holmes. After 12 hard-fought rounds, Cooney was stopped in the 13th. During his 14-year career, Cooney also fought Ron Lyle, Jimmy Young, Ken Norton, Michael Spinks, and George Foreman. One of the best left-hook artists in boxing, Cooney retired in 1990 with a record of 28-3.
Gerry now travels throughout North America as a featured speaker and guest at functions. He also hosts a radio show on Sirius radio.
