I love Winky, hate RJJ, but Roy easily outpoints him.

Winky's jab is great and his defense is among the best I've ever seen, but Roy Jones Jr at 160 was unreal. I think his speed, reflexes, and movement wouldn't give Winky much of a chance to get off at the rate he likes too. There probably wouldn't be many clean punches landed, but after seeing Jones the way he handled guys at 160 and Toney at 168, I believe he would win a comfortable decision (9-3 or so) over Winky. He just wouldn't be there for Winky to hit and he would give him all sorts of angles and unorthodox punches.

I actually think this fight will be much closer than most people think. Winky has an ATG great jab and even against a boxing god like Jones was at 160 he would still find Jones with it. I think Winky could possibly give Jones fits with his southpaw stance, workrate, defense and jab but I would still favor Jones by 8-4 or 7-5.

Winky would lose every round. He'd have some flurries when Jones backed into the ropes, but unlike Taylor, Roy didn't constantly lie there to be hit early in his career. He'd dance circles and potshot the slower Wright for an easy, boring UD.

Winky's shotgun jab would keep the fight close and keep Roy from getting in a grove.

But I think Roy's hand and foot speed win him this match by a close MD.

I disagree. Winky's defense and chin are too good and would prevent him from being destroyed even by a boxing god like Jones.
