Re: Prime Donald Curry Was Awesome.
I could watch Donald Curry over any other fighter including Tyson , JCC and Roy Jones. He was that good. Curry was a beautiful boxer, precision punching and good KO power and it was wonderful seeing him in action. Do not think there has been another fighter with his style of boxing. Saw fights of him at his peak beating Colin Jones, Starling, Jun Suk Hwang and brutal KO of Milton McCrory.
Why he became shot is another topic, but I did notice he started taking too many punches. He hurt McCallum the most I have ever seen with the right cross and he gave Norris and Nunn at their peak very uncomfortable and hard fights
Honeyghan was a brilliant fighter himself, on that night he may not have been denied by even a peak Curry, remember Lloyd was fearless, and even went to Italy and Koed their champ, but agreed peak Curry would have just held off Honyghan.
Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.
