    Does a move up in weight of 6 pounds make a difference?

    Winky Wright moved up in weight of 6 pounds to fight Tito Trinidad. Do you guys think that's a good idea against a puncher at his natural weight?

    Winky is much more of a natural middleweight than Trinidad so I dont see this being an issue if anything Trinidad is too high in weight.

    6 pounds does not make that much of a difference. I still think Tito is the bigger puncher, but if Wright is able to maintain his defense, he might pull the upset. I was riding Tito at 1st but as fight time gets closer, I'm changing my mind.

    On the undercard,

    Zab Judah will fight Cosme Rivera. I think I'm going to pay for this one.
