I'm going to give my 2cents.



Slighty in Curry's favor due to his shape, width, and thickness. I consider Liberatore close mostly due to his legs. Curry is able to pull off excellent abdominal shape, while staying wide which gives him the front relaxed.



Curry has him in nearly every category. The front double bicep really reveals Liberatore's weakness in width.



Curry again, he just dominates too much in width. Also, his chest striations are impressive. Liberatore appears to be hiding his flaws.



I don't think the side chest could get any closer. Curry's wins in thickness, Liberatore wins in conditioning. This pose would slightly lean towards Curry for me though, due to his thickness, aesthetics, and chest striations.



This is no question Liberatore for me. This is easily his best pose in my opinion.



Not the best comparison picture. I think it's still clear that Curry wins upper body and Liberatore wins on the lower half. I would have to see a better comparison to be sure, but I believe Curry would take it due to Liberatore's weak back. Since it's a bad picture i'll leave this one even.



Once again Liberatore fails to convince me with his thickless, widthless back. In my opinion, Liberatore is more behind on the upper body than Curry is in the lower body, so I have to give it to Curry.



I had a tough time deciding on this one. Sure, most of you probably feel Curry dominates due to his shape and width. But, I don't think this picture does Liberatore much justice. Even so, you can still see how much he nailed his conditioning in his chest, quads, and obliques. Thus, I feel this could go either way. Despite how it looks in this picture, Liberatore's legs came in better than Curry's. My vote would slightly lean in Curry's favor however.




I feel this is another bad picture of Liberatore, but if Curry looks even close to how he looks in this picture, he wins this pose too.



Overall: Liberatore wins in conditioning, vascularity, and thickness in some areas. Meanwhile, Curry wins in width, thickness, symmetry, and shape. I give the overall to Curry.

i agree with Flex, imo Curry is way more impressive than Liberatore, so even if Michael looks in a better condition, in my opinion Curry is still the real winner of this comparison :tiphat:

Very good Flex.

Curry just too wide and seems to have a lot of "space" left for more mass. Curry therefor has more potential in pro ranks. Curry's shape is also more pleasing to the eye

My final assessment: At first I thought that Liberatore was robbed because of Curry's name but after looking over these comparison shots several several times I finally say that Curry's conditionig is good and his muscle thickness just overpowers Liberatore, while Liberatore's conditioning is just spot on he does not have the muscle thickness to beat Curry....In my opinion if Liberatore would bring his back up he would have easily taken the class especially condsidering that he only lost by 1 point and his back was very weak from the front poses to the back shots :tiphat:

I give the win to Curry

very very close to call.. but if you ask me Curry edges him out just due to this back and arms.. but i think Michael is in better condition.

Overall this goes to Curry, no doubt about it. And it did.

Liberatore looks great but not just that impressive.

You should compare Curry to Liberatore at the junior nationals. Liberatore was slighlty better conditioned and had way better coller at the juniors. Curry does take this show but if you muscle kombat curry vs liberatore at the juniors your assesment will be different.

He's not, just compare the glutes and hamstrings and you should be able to tell.

It was a close call between those two guys.

But what do you think...who has more potential as a future pro? I think Curry all the way.

Definetly Curry, but it's not fair to give someone the win just because they have more "potential."
