Default Re: someone please school me on donald curry

He was a lot more skilled and talented than Tito.

One of the more technically talented fighters of the last 30 years, to be quite frank. Curry basically had it all in his brief prime. Handspeed, two fisted power, great accuracy, very tight defense, excellent in-fighting ability, and a high ring IQ.

Lost to Honeyghan in a fight where he was badly off, due to being dead at the weight. Was never the same after. But when he beat Starling, Colin Jones, and McCrory he was awesome.

The 84-85 version of Curry would have beaten every welter in the last 30 years NOT named Leonard, Duran, and Hearns.

In other words, he'd have beaten Tito, DLH, Quartey, Mosley, Cotto, and yes...... Floyd too.
