Default Wright - Tarver

This wouldn't even be FOTY in the Sunshine State, but they could probably get a few thousand tickets sold and grind out another senior circuit payday. I finally got around to seeing Hopkins - Wright the other day. Wink has faded and shouldn't be carrying 170, but he is by no means done.

Who would you pick here? I could see Wright's output giving a weak Tarver issues, but a focused and in shape Tarver ought to be too big for Winky to catch.

Winky should have more left in the tank. Hops really fcked Tarver up.

Tarver is a journeyman Light heavy and Winky is a Junior middlewt.

Despite Winky's skill edge, Tarver should take the UD.

A lthough Tarver is getting a bit old now i still think he'd be to big and strong for winky
however if tarver mans up and takes on Danny Green he will get punched into next year

Winky probably will never fight below 168 again. I was actually surprised by the amount of physical strength he showed fighting the old man (I scored it 116-114 Hopkins, and actually, would have no beef with anyone who saw a draw or Wink winning by a round.)

They might as well fight each other, because The Road Warrior would light both their asses on fire.

Winky would beat him by UD keeping him off with his jab all night

Winky actually carried the weight well imo but hopkins just nutralized his jab and tired him out with his clinching and roughousing to win an easy UD

Tarver is a huge guy when you see him up close, and Winky is small. Tarver is a lazy bum, but I think he still has too much weight and slickness to beat Wright, but it would be a horrible fight.

tarver's garbage, but winky wouldn't be able to handle his size or carry the extra weight
