Default Curry-McCallum

Curious if anyone can give me a recap of this fight--all i know is that Curry lost by kayo--was it competitive or a blowout for the Body Snatcher?

Curry seemed back to pre Honeyghan form and was winning the fight fairly easily...

Then McCallum threw a haymaker that everybody saw except the man who had to duck the punch!

Curry was boxing beautifully and winning, he even hurt McCallum once or twice.

It was actuaslly a right hand that hurt McCallum the most. Had him wobbly for a short time.

It was a long right hand which buckled McCallum's legs, during the 2nd or 3rd round. Curry just dropped inside, and came out with his guard down. Sweeping left hook from McCallum, bang...........Down.

The worst he was hurt was a big right hand. Can't remember the round.

Round two is when his legs dipped, if memory serves me right.

This fight really was the begining of the end for Curry as a high class operator. While many would say the Honeyghan defeat, I disagree as he had an excuse with making 147lbs. After his defeat to McCallum, it must have seriously demoralised him as he was performing well for as long as the fight lasted, unlike the Honeyghan defeat when he was as good as "owned".

Curry was doing ok but working hard to do it. McCallum was gonna win that fight one way or another.

Rumours went around that he was bi-***ual. I'm pretty sure he fathered a couple of kids.
