I think Larry Holmes got to Gerry Cooney when he slapped him after his fight with Leon Spinks. Howard Cosell was interviewing Larry and said he was going to bring Gerry over. Holmes warned Howard that he'd slap Cooney if he came over.....and he did.
Though they didn't fight for another year I think Holmes got into Cooney's head a bit.
