Gerry Cooney Fouls Larry Holmes One of the best heavyweight championship fights of the 1980s was Gerry Cooney's attempt to win the title from champion Larry Holmes in June 1982. Although it was a very competitive fight (won by Holmes in the 13th round) it is most famous for Gerry Cooney's egregious foul late in round nine. Just watching it will make every male cringe in pain! Ouch! (The tenth round is also part of this clip.)

Was Gerry Cooney the boxer who had his front teeth missing?

Gerry Cooney was a handsome Irishman, Naomi. I think you're confusing Cooney with Leon Spinks.

Quite a while ago I posted a 1978 Sports Illustrated cover featuring Leon Spinks, if you wish to check it out..

I saw this fight at a closed-circuit venue. The crowd was 98% male. Most of us loadly groaned and went into a defensive crouch when the replays of Cooney's foul were shown.

You're right Lava, how could I confuse the two?
