Rest in Peace Arthur Curry

Last week in New York City, Arthur Curry, Director of Boxing Talent Relations at HBO Sports, passed away due to unknown causes. Acting as a liaison, Curry was the friendly and personable connection between HBO and many of boxing's super stars such as Roy Jones, Jr, Riddick Bowe, James Toney, and Floyd Mayweather Jr. Curry was loved by the fighters as much as he was by HBO's staff and family. Executives and television broadcasting crew members were close with Curry, as was evident in the emotional distress exhibited by HBO ring announcers Jim Lampley and Larry Merchant, as they spent a few moments grieving Curry's tragic and untimely death concluding the Williams vs. Wright telecast last Saturday night. Curry died at the young age of 49. May he rest in peace; my thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
