true, hes still good, at least the last time he fought. but that was also a year ago and hes 42 years old. im not so sure about tarver anyway, he hasnt really fought anyone besides roy. hopkins looked ok vs j taylor but lost both those fights cuz he didnt do anything for the first half of the fights. and tarver was not unbeaten. hes lost to roy, glen johnson and a couple others.

with that said, i would still love to see them fight. a year or 2 ago i thought winky was right up there with floyd as the pound for pound king. i guess we'll see if hes still up there.

theres 4 or 5 big fights comin up. this should be good.

I ment since champ. But even then he lost to Glen Johnson by a UD but the loss was questonable, many thought that he should of won the fight. In his rematch with Johnson he didnt give the judges a chance to rob him again by winning with UD. He has beat a few good fighters. Montell Griffin, Roy Jones, Glen Johnson.

yeah but montell griffin was washed up at that point, so was roy, and glen johnson is only known for beating a washed up roy as well. then again doesnt really matter cuz hopkins took him apart anyway

Winky Wright is a good fighter. Jermain Taylor was lucky to come away with a draw in that fight.

Winkys defense is simply amazing. Did you see him in his fight with tito. I for sure thought that Felix 'tito' Trinidad would win the fight.

I'm cheering for Winky.

Ever since he won against Trinidad they've been friends. He went down to Puerto Rico I can't remember when and they hung out. Trinidad showed him his training facility and the stuff he has going on down there. Winky was a cool guy from the start. Trinidad lost to the right guy.

I heard a rumor that De La Hoya vs Trinidad might happen after all. I keep in touch with people at the island and they say that De La Hoya might get his wish. He only has to beat PBF to get it. That's a big MAYBE on the wish part. I think Tito and Oscar are both scared of each other. :

Being more vocal than your counterparts doesn't equate to being to more confident.

How are Tito and Oscar "scared" of each other. Explain that?

Again, I'm puzzled. Does every fighter have to come in knocking guys out to the interests of casual boxing fans?

Porque el mismo Tito lo ha dicho. El frecuenta la gallera que van el pai mio y el tio mio. El cria gallos y los echa a pelear como pasa tiempos. El dice que el dinero esta ahi pero que no se ponen de acuerdo con las estipulaciones de la pelea.

Translate that and you'll have my answer of why Tito and Oscar are "scared" of each other.

Another bit of info that I've received from my people in Puerto Rico is that Oscar de la Hoya will make his entrance to the ring on the May 5 with the American Flag, Mexican Flag and the Puerto Rican Flag. That's a sure thing to happen.

I dont get this either because i like the lower classes like middleweight and welterwieght because of the speed and skill more than the power of heavyweights. I love to watch Winky and PBF because of their outstanding defense it is a work of art, almost like a 6th sense.

I dont think he ment Winky Wright is boring, i think he ment Winkys style is. Winky Wright is more a defense boxer and thats what makes him so good. His defense is the best in boxing today and alot of boxers have trouble hitting him with good shots and in the process Winky collects the points by picking them off with his jab.
