He's overrated.

JMM is a much better technician.
Bull****. Winky isn't overrated people underrated him because they hated his style. He had an ATG jab with solid defense. He could come forward applying educated pressure from behind a jab and tight guard walking guys down and making them look foolish. He was also a good counter puncher with a good workrate and had underrated toughness and ring IQ. If anything Winky was underrated and would have given anyone hell in the last 25 years from 147-160. IMO he beats Oscar, PBF, Canelo, Cotto, Martinez and Pac. He would be arguably the best fighter in the world today if he was in his prime.
