Default Re: Is Donald Curry underated?

He came down with a thud didn't he. I felt sorry for him at the time and still feel sorry for him now. The expectations on him were enormous considering some of the boxing mags at one point replaced Hagler with Curry as their #1 fighter in the sport. He'd himself talked about usingg 154 as a stepping stone before challenging Hagler. But he never made it at 154. Maybe we under-rate his prime, which seemed to end in about December 1985 when he defended against some guy (Eduardo someone?) and he was being hit with punches that wouldn't have landed previously

p.s by all accounts he's a decent guy
