He's overrated.

JMM is a much better technician.
Bullshit. 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.
