FightHype Community > BOXING HYPE > Boxing
Former World Champion Winky Wright sustained a left hand injury during sparring and must withdraw from his December 4th bout against Michi Munoz. "I'm very disappointed about having to pull out of this fight on December 4th, and I'd like to apologize to all my fans, Snoqualmie Casino and VERSUS," said Wright. "I was feeling real sharp in camp and I was looking forward to a great performance before getting hurt. I promise that I'll be back and better than ever in 2009." The entire Wright-Munoz card, which was scheduled to take place at the Snoqualmie Casino in Snoqualmie, Washington and be televised by VERSUS, has been canceled, and will not be rescheduled. Wright is now expected to return to action in early 2009.

Not good for Winky!

Agreed. Hopefully the injury is so bad he just fades to Bolivian.
I hate to admit it, but Winky has got to be one of my most least liked fighters to watch. His style just bores me.

Well for the people who don't appreciate skills..

Winky,B-Hop,Mayweather,Spinks,Byrd,and other guys like them get hated on all the time by casual fans and hardcore fans..Some of my friends who are casual fans though appreciate the skill those guys possess and like it even though it is cosidered by most a boring fight..The rest of my friends are the normal casual fan who hate these guys and just want to see wars..

B-Hop is a special case though..He was hated by most people I knew when he was fighting "boring" and now he has either found new stamina or decided to let loose some more..I think it is mostly stamina cause why else would he preserve himself for 6 rounds before he got going??
Winky's never gotten his just due, in my opinion.
While Mayweather and Hopkins fight defensive styles, Winky always presses the fight. He's right in the other guy's face all night. Even though he never knocks anyone out, he's the one who presses the fight and forces the other guy to try to keep him off.

The difference is, Winky complains too much. While Mayweather and Hopkins stick more to the whole "arrogance" thing, Winky just bitches about not getting credit and not getting big paydays.

He has a point...Mayweather is never exciting, but he mouthed/PR'd his way into fights with Gatti and DLH.
Winky just annoys everyone by complaining. "Nobody wants to fight me. I don't know what else I have to do. They're all punks, blah blah blah. I offered to go down to 154 and fight anywhere they want, but they won't do it. Waaaaaa."

He'd do a lot better to issue some direct challenges and state exactly "what he'll do" to the guys he wants to fight.
"Oscar, I dare you to fight me. I will beat you into retirement. I will punish you for 9 rounds and then I will mercifully end it for you in the 10th. Then you can go back to Puerto Rico and wear your dresses and lingerie for your wife."
