The hate is high here brother. Miguel Cotto is not subject to debate

His merits can get its own debate.

The point is, Winky has a handful of good wins, some wins against past prime foes like Ike and Tito and losses (or draws) in big fights. He will never be known as someone who energized a crowd, rallied fan bases and put asses in seats.

He is a Jr MW version of Clottey. A good fighter, nothing more and nothing less. With a couple of good wins

But if there is an honest debate on his merits and his CONTRIBUTIONS to the sport of boxing, I'd love to hear it and would love to change my opinion, and the 60% that voted in the 'No' favor.

Winky had a really close fight with unbeaten Jermain Taylor, most felt he was robbed. Marquez had two other close fights with Manny in 04' (draw) and 11' (loss), where many felt he won.

Aside from those controveries, Winky had wins over McKart, Dodson, Quartey, Mosley, Trinidad (past it). Aside from JMM's main controversies, had wins over Gainer, Polo, Barrera (past it), Juarez, Katsidis, J. Diaz, and Peden.

Marquez is going to be HOF and a ton of people leap to calling him an ATG of this era. Winky probably deserves to be in the HOF, won't get in, and I voted no because you can't really get in the HOF based on close fights you lost.
Wink wasn't robbed against Vargas IMO. Close fight. But most of wat u said I agree with. Winky has a good resume. I dunno if its hall quality tho. But its good. And the Simon fight was a robbery.

I agree that Winky wasn't robbed against Vargas

I saw snippets of the Simon fight and I don't suspect that it was fair scoring there either

look for round nine in this fight (against vasquez)

he was a four year pro. look at his reaction after the knockdown in round nine

he was all but unconscious


i remember him taking some hard rabbit punches in this fight as well
