Curry, the better technician. But Cuevas obviously with the huge equalizer. Who wins?
PIPINO in 2. KO Currys jaw crushed and he is carried out of the arena on a stretcher.
Pipino would have done what Bobby Joe Young could have done had he fought Donald in 1983. He stops Curry in five rounds.
Curry all the way.Classy boxer/puncher moves well and take it,cuevas way way over blown
Curry by decision.
Bobby Joe Young was a journeyman by 1983
Donald Curry was entering his prime in 1983.
Yes, Curry suffered a flash knockdown to Hwang.
You have overblown this to claim Curry had a bad chin.
In his prime, he was quite durable.
As for Cuevas, he would have to land a home run. Curry had a tight defense.
Cuevas would have a punchers chance.
Bobby Joe Young wouldn't have a 1/100 chance of beating Donald Curry in 1983.
Curry by decision. Cuevas is a fun power puncher but not good enough skill wise to beat curry for my money. I think both of them tend to get overrated on here, but I would give an edge to curry winning a decision than to Cuevas stopping him. They are the 2 likely scenarios, I just feel a curry decision is the more likely one.
Curry doesn't move around the ring like SRL did. Just hope Donald has the chin and own firepower to hold Cuevas off him..being this is a 15 round fight.
I pick Cuevas by 5th round knockout. Donald didn't move well enough to avoid Pipino's punches and when he leaned forward and then leaned back to avoid the punches he would get hit with the left hook. It is an interesting fight, but I see Donald's wide foot positioning and crouch as a problem is avoiding Pipino's punch.
Excellent analysis. Kudos
Curry would outclass Cuevas.
We agree quite often.
Surprised Morlocks has never accused us of being the same person....LOL
Yes, I think you and I watched a lot of the same fights at the same time. So our level of context concerning many of the fighters is similar. (if I remember correctly, you might have even been at the Vincent Pettway-Simon Brown card I attended, too) Also, you seem to tell it straight. Unlike many agenda-driven posters on this site. Some of the rants by Morlocks against you seem to come from out of left field.
You know that was my first thought, Curry is too good a boxer to lose this fight, but there's something nagging me that says Curry will get nailed around the 7th 0r 8th. The post Hearns Pipino was literally a different fighter though
I do try to be as objective as possible. I know it is difficult when analyzing our favorites.
Yes, I was at the Simon Brown v. Vincent Pettway card in April 1995.
My buddy worked for Capital Care which was part of Blue Cross Blue Shield and got the tickets at a huge discount or free. We were not ringside, but in a lower row, right above where various King promoted fighters were milling about. I wish I had talked to Frankie Randall. He was constantly on his cell phone.
