pretty much what I feel. He mentally could not match up against the top elite guys, but his skill level was almost there. To be that elite level like a Hagler you need to be able to put your mind to a goal and take punches and win. Curry didn't have that mental toughness. A very good fighter. The fight with McCallum meant everything to both of them. Whoever won that had a chance to be great.
