His guys were getting three to four fights a year and I could only get one  (Gerry Cooney Quotes) The bad press came because they thought I should fight more. I couldn’t get the fights because if I would sign to fight one of King’s guys I would be signed to him. I chose not to do that.

A lot of guys get distracted, which only hurts them. You must stay focused and work very hard at boxing  (Gerry Cooney Quotes) You take that walk from the dressing room to the ring and that’s when the real man comes out.
