I've heard lots of reasons for how and why he faded out quickly. Did Curry have too many amateur fights which caught up to him and wore him down sooner than expected? Was he weight drained? Did he encounter a bad style he couldn't adapt to that night? That was really the best fight Honeyghan fought in his whole career against the top dog at the time, (or so many thought). I was shocked as a kid when I heard the result of this fight. I guess many like myself at the time, had high hopes for him and were looking forward to big potential fights against Hearns and maybe even Hagler. Watching the fight on youtube he looked completely listless and did not get off at all.
