Hearns would be able to hurt him big and outbox him. Nobody in the history of boxing could'v e outboxed Hearns. Some may have been able to bull him to a decision or late TKO or catch him with a big shot(and it would have to be a big puncher) but noone outboxes him from 147-154. Winky would have his strengths taken away, and made to feel Hearns power. Hearns by Wide UD. There is no way Winky can win.
Strengths taken away??? How is Hearns going to take away a great defense, a safety first offense and a great jab....as well as a shitload of experience, poise under pressure and P4P skills? You act like Winky is some average boxer. I know the guy is underrated, but you're being ridiculous. You say nobody in the history of boxing outboxes Tommy from 147 to 154lbs This is where I started to get the feeling you might be a little biased....in picking Hearns to "outbox" Sugar Ray Robinson

I'm not trying to start a bitchfest with you. I just don't agree. I hold Winky in very high regard currently and all time, and just feel he would have a very good chance at beating Hearns.

Oh, and Mosley only got him to respect his power when Winky offered up a free shot, and Shane went to the body.....which was a genious move by Shane and a ****ing stupid one by Winky

Define boxing then. Is moving in and throwing a lead left hook "boxing"? Or is "boxing" to you dancing around throwing a jab, and an occasional combination and then moving back out? I just want to be clear.

You say "outmuscled" or "out fought", can you give examples of those as well. I honestly am missing something here. So what did SRL do to him? Outmuscle him? Out fight him? I know Hearns started to win the boxing match midway, but he got outboxed in the beginning and definitely in the end.....Hearns became the boxer and Leonard became the stalker, but don't you think at the end of the fight it was Leonard that made the necessary adjustments and did what he had to do to "win the boxing match"?

And Winky's jab once again won't be anything to Hearns greater reach and more powerful jab. So how does Winky imposed his gameplan on someone taller, with a batter reach, quicker, and MUCH more powerful? Winky would play on the defensive all night. Hearns by wide UD.
Sweat Pea you under 40 posts a day.

Dissapointing.

You know this has absolutely nothing to do with the title of the thread yet somehow manages to be the most relevant post in it. Kudos, my friend.



P.S. As much as I like Terry, he & Tito Trinidad need to be removed immediately.

Hearns would beat Winky Wright at 154...too big, too fast, better jab, more power, damn near impossible to outbox.

there have been alot of talented boxers to stop there in this division.

but Legacy wise i think McCallum and Norris i like at that weight and were deadly there also.

For me Hearns was the perfect Welterweight but had he fought at 154 he would have been great there also.

I dont know Winky is a brilliant technical fighter. Not saying he would beat Hearns but it wont be as easy as some think.

My issue with sticking Wright in there is because of his 2 losses at 154, one of which he was KD 5 times. I can't see him standing in there with McCallum or Hearns. Specially Hearns.....Wright is a boxing wizard for sure, but people always forget, Hearns may be one of the top 5 BOXERS to ever live. It was nearly impossible to outbox Hearns.

But then he lost to Vargas as well in a close fight. I was wrong, he has 3 losses at 154. Not a single one of those guys was in the league of Hearns in any catagory IMO.

And McCallum would have just beaten Wright. Cleanly and soundly.

the way to beat either of these fighters without tkoing them is to neutralize the jab...that being said....

i don't think hearns had ever fought someone like winky wright and i don't know how he would deal with him
If Jermaine Taylor could penetrate Wright's defense, if Vargas could, Hearns could. Hearns hits much harder than both, and he hits much harder than Trinidad. He is also more technically sound than either.
