I can appreciate why some people resent Winky's later career choices but for me he's definitely a second ballot at absolute worst,and possibly a first.(undecided on that one though,most likely second)

Anything outside of yes means it's coming from someone who does not know shit.

LOL, there are guys in the HoF that shouldn't be in there. So the fact you say it's for no brainers proves you are stupid.

Trinidad could've fought JC Candelo and pulled in as many ppv buys.

Honestly didn't know this was up for debate.....he's a shoe in IMO. One of the ATG's at 154, also had some close losses that should have gone his way and even had a close fight way above his natural weight vs B-Hop so yeah Winky is HOF bound make no mistakes about it.

This.

You don't have to be Ray Robinson to get in the hall. While I don't think he fulfilled his potential, Winky had a very good career. A matter of when not if.
