Gerry Cooney quotes :
I've spent most of my life in prison. I was a prisoner of my fear and my low self-esteem.Gerry Cooney
I grew up in a big Irish, Catholic family. My dad was a pretty rough guy. So one of my brothers left home when he was 15 and found his way to the gym. It gave me the opportunity to go and spend some time with him and work out in the gym.Gerry Cooney
