RFA 9’s Jeff Curran: “The Longer The Fight Goes, The More It Can Turn In My Favor”

The ‘Big Frog’, who has been fighting professionally since 1998, spent a good portion of his early career fighting well above the weight he will fight on Friday night as he takes on Pedro Munhoz for the RFA Bantamweight Title.
