Default Please remove Wright from p4p lists!!!

I do not see how anyone can including Winky Wright on any modern p4p. I let a person argue for a historic list, but not a current.
His last convincing fights were 2004/2005.
Since late 1999, he knocked out one person. All fights (except for DQ versus McKart) went 12 rounds.
Recently, looked rough against Soliman (late 2005), draw with Taylor, and lost to Hopkins. He is now flat-footed and fading.
I appreciate his skill and his resume, but he no longer deserves to remain on anyone's p4p list.

Because hes beat top ten p4p guys, like Mosley, Trinidad, and drew with Taylor a fight which many people thought he won (including myself). He was undisputed at 154lbs. Hes beat nothing but solid contenders for years now. He lost to Hopkins but the scores were wayyy outta proportion and it was at lightheavy. He more than anyone deserves to be on there specially considering the fact that people had neglected him for years.

He's outside of my top 10 right now as well, but you could make a case to have him in it.

I don't think he should be on a top 10 pound for pound list either. His last significant win was against Mosley at 154. Yeah, the Tito win was a good one for prestige, but Tito was coming out of retirement and wasn't on any p4p list at the time. Keeping Wright on a p4p list based on that win is just as crazy as putting RJ on the list after he knocks Tito out . Anyway, Winky is on the outskirts of my top 10 p4p list right now.

How many people one the top ten have a guy like mosley on their resume... I mean Bernand has Winky, Winky has Mosley, Pavlik has Taylor & Miranda, Mayweather has an unimpressive dubya over DLH, fact is wins speak louded than words and hes beat pretty good names. So he deserves to be on there.

Do you see there is a bit of a cycle there that results in a few too many fighter in American circles being listed?

I think he deserves to b on there, He lost a fight at 170 to bernard hopkins, which was way out of winks weight class. Put him on a list with anyone 160 and lower, and he damn near smashes they asses

that makes no sense, so are you saying if shane mosley goes back down to lightweight he is also top 10 p4p?
