    Curry in a clear decision. Just a better overall technician imo.

    Fun fight but I'll take prime Curry by convincing decision. Quartey could be a bit one dimensional and Curry's skills would get the better of him. I'll also take Marlon Starling over Quartey.

    Donald was a level above Quartey. I never understood the hype around Quartey. Strong fighter, but rather limited and robotic.

    I like Ike but Curry would stop him.
    Curry has way too many weapons for Quartey and sooner rather then latter would stsrt dropping counters over Quarteys jab.
    Not to mention that Curry is faster then Quartey and just as strong-remember he outmuscled Starling the second time.

    Curry was definitely the more athletically gifted guy with superior hand and foot speed and was the better technician. With that said, Quartey was strong as hell and extremely effective with that punishing jab. I'm going to go with Curry but would not be surprised if Quartey broke Curry down and stopped him late.

    I disagree. Ike has a good jab, a great jab. He used it alot but he could be countered with lefthooks. DelaHoya floored him with his. Oscar was quick but Curry was even quicker. The Lone Star Cobra was rangy as well. Curry had a little too much talent for Quartey.

    Curry takes a wide decision here. I love his minimalist movement and baiting style with the strong offense. He'd bait and work off Ike's jab all night.
