History of Gerry Cooney Boxing Career

Gerry Cooney is best remembered for his classic boxing fight with Larry Holmes for the World Heavyweight Boxing Championship.
Cooney was measured to be a White Hope by many critics during his boxing career, but he also acquired a status as a knockout artist. Cooney stopped Jimmy Young in four rounds, stunning him with left hands and opening a cut with a right, which led to a TKO win. Cooney then stopped Ron Lyle in two minutes forty-nine seconds and Ken Norton in fifty-four seconds. After the fight, while he was in his dressing room getting his damaged ribs taped, Lyle said that Cooney was the hardest puncher he had ever faced. These victories earned him a shot at World Heavyweight Champion Larry Holmes. The Holmes fight had very vital cultural implications, and was promoted to that effect by promoter Don King The bout was one of the most culturally toned events in boxing since Jack Johnson fought James J. Jeffries in 1910. Holmes vs. Cooney broke many Las Vegas records, as well as for attendance at a Las Vegas fight and money wagered, both at the sportsbooks and tables. Many celebrities of the day were in attendance. It was also reported that United States President Ronald Reagan had promised to call Gerry Cooney in his dressing room if he won the fight. The bout turned out to be a classic boxing war, and Cooney showed his heroism and roughness. He was knocked down in the 2nd round, but came back strong, hurting Holmes with a left to the body at the end of the 4th round. The fight was stopped in the 13th round when Cooney's trainer, Victor Valle, entered the ring to prevent Cooney from taking any further punishment. Holmes always maintained that this was one of the toughest bouts of his career.
