What may have initially sounded like a crazy boxing rumor could turn out true. Unnamed sources close to the situation are reporting that promoters Bob Arum, Gary Shaw and Don King are in deep negotiations to match former undisputed junior middleweight boss Ronald “Winky” Wright and WBC Super Lightweight king “Pretty Boy” Floyd Mayweather, possibly in late October or November of this year. The fight will reportedly take place at a contracted weight of 154 lbs. Wright was last seen dominating Felix “Tito” Trinidad. In Mayweather’s last outing, he turned in a near-flawless performance in stopping former champ Arturo Gatti. More details to follow.

I don't know about this. It is a huge jump from Jr. Lightweight to Jr. Middleweight. I think Mayweather might be making a mistake, if Winky was a bigger puncher....since he isn't, I think this will be an intriguing matchup!

I dont know if Mayweather should take this fight against winky maybe against another jr middleweight but not Winky. Mayweather might be going to far but this would be a great fight for the fans. I would buy this fight

I think it might be an intriguing match up, speed vs defense. Although Winky saw this before (Shane Mosley) and won. I do think that Floyd is a better boxer than Shane Mosley, and certainly wouldn't look to knock Winky out (as Shane Mosley foolishly did). Thus as a battle of boxer vs. boxer it definately would be entertaining.

P.S. Floyd would be jumping from Jr. Welterweight, not Jr. Lightweight...but it is still a big leap.

I know that Floyd has great boxing skills and that at this point he may be able to outbox a lot of these guys but there are some things you just don't do...and moving up in weight without the weight coming naturally is one of them.

I think Floyd should clean up the Jr. Welterweight division first. There are some good fights with big money there with Ricky Hatton and Cotto. Then, move up to Welterweight and Jr. Middleweight. But, to jump to Jr. Middleweight and fight someone who is fighting at Middleweight...smh. I don't care for that.

I also like the idea of Floyd staying active by fighting those guys in the lower divisions as he's moving up...of course, assuming those fights can be made with few hitches. It keeps Floyd active and he can gain the weight naturally...bringing along his speed, hopefully.

More trash talk from Mayweather

A lot of people are talking about the Floyd Mayweather-Winky Wright fight. Winky Wright is fighting but they don't have an opponent for November. I think Winky's a good boxer, but you have to do your homework on this guy. Every weight class I move to I get knockouts. I moved to 140 pounds and in the last six months I got two knockouts at 140. Now look at his career. This guy tells you he's going to knock me out, how's he going to knock me out when he has two knockouts in the last six years and I have two knockouts in the last six months? There's a better chance of me knocking him out than him knocking me out. Shane Mosley came up from lightweight and he's a junior middleweight and he couldn't knock Mosley out in two fights. Yeah, he got a good jab, but there's no fighter out there that's going to beat me with a jab. Trinidad is straight up and down with no special effects and Shane Mosley is a frontrunner. I'm something different, I'm there for twelve rounds and I can give it and take it. And okay, okay, say if he's punching a little bit, he's still not punching than any of the 140 pounders that I'm facing right now. I don't believe Winky Wright punches harder than Arturo Gatti!"
