The smoother Curry would get to Laing quicker than Jones, I also don't think that Kirk had the world class power needed tp keep Curry honest.
Factor in that Kirk was erratic at best (for example L KO7 Buck Smith; L pts 10 Reg Ford), I really don't see Kirk having much chance here.
Excellent breakdown , I was ringside for both the Jones fights with Laing. Compared to Curry, Jones was pretty slow and predictable, but with real power. Curry would stop Laing, who did not possess the power to keep him honest.
