Still a HOF worthy fighter in my view. Fought very good opponents and was undisputed for a while. Donald Curry at his peak was an incredible fighter, my favorite guys to watch.
probably HOF worthy ,but then who do you not vote in so Donald can get in? Virgil HIll is up for the HOF this year, and he is really and underrated guy because he had a boring style, but he had something like 25 title defenses in 3 or 4 title reigns at 175 and 190
