    Default Winky turns downs Margarito

    Winky Wright has spurned a $4 million offer to face WBO welter champ Antonio Margarito. Winky says it's not enough cash, although the offer surpasses his purse from the Jermain Taylor fight. The crafty southpaw wants his next fight to be at home in the Tampa area, followed by a challenge to 168lb champion Joe Calzaghe. www.fightnews.com

    Its a lot of money to turn down wonder how much he wanted for the fight? Its good news for Calzaghe tho if Winky wins his next fight. It seem on1 wants to fight Margarito!

    Going back down to 147 probably had something to do with it. Winky has not fought at that weight since 1992. I would think that going this long not being down at 147 trying to jump from 160 all the way down would not be good for him. Would zap all of his energy and at that weight he wouldnt be the fighter that he is.

    he loses more than he gains from that fight.....if he wins he beat an unproven fighter if he loses there goes any other big paydays.......might he be looking at the winner of the Spinks/Karmadzin fight....there would be money in that....
    It feels good to be back home.

    If people now think Winky would lose to Margarito or is scared of him after fighting Tito and Taylor their are smoking the pipe... Trinidad and Taylor are bigger, better, stronger, more technically sound than Margarito, but maybe Wright is hearing the rumors about fighting Calzaghe as well.

    I know the rumour of Calzaghe v Right has been about for a few weeks but it seems to be gaining momentum now. This would be a great fight and hopefully WILL be a great fight. There was a mention in another thread that there is no big fights to really look forward to but I think this one will fit that bill nicely for any boxing fan.

    Whatever happens with Margarito one point from all of this is that they are doing a good job building up his profile with people everywhere. They seem to be turning him into a bit of enigma that nobody wants to fight. I know most boxing fans probably know a lot about him but other "fringe boxing fans" will only know about him through all this speculation. So they are doing a good job in that department I would say.

    just like floyd

    the ignorant claim that floyd is running......
    so i guess wright must be too

    please

    margarito is nothing more than the next bob arum hype machine, neither winky or floyd would get ANY respect for beating his ass
    margarito isnt anybody, hasnt fought anybody, has done NOTHING to warrant stepping in the ring with either of these two great fighters.

    if he were to fight zab or somebody like that and win, then he should be considered for a fight with either of those two greats (and actually deserve the payday that comes along with it)

    It's not that everyone is scared on Margarito its that nobody cares about him. He's not as good as he thinks he is and big name fighters aren't fighting him because they have absolutely nothing to gain from beating him. Margarito needs to stop looking for big names and start fighting his way up the rankings until someone HAS to face him instead of complaining of people ducking him.

    Best thing that I have heard said...Margarito does need to start fighting his way up.

    Fwock screaming for Floyd...because he aint gonna fight a name that has no appeal to it.

    The only people that want to see that fight are Margarito's fans...& god knows why...cuz he aint got a shot in hell of beating Floyd. He's to limited.

    Floyd'd be stupid & so would Wright when they have bigger fish to fry...Oscar, Cotto, Hatton, Taylor, & Calzaghe; respectively.
