Winky Wright Targets Return in November or December

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com caught up with former junior middleweight champion Ronald "Winky" Wright" moments after Amir Khan defeated Zab Judah 5th round TKO.

The Florida based fighter has been inactive since his one sided loss to Paul Williams in April of 2009 at the Mandaly Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. Wright, who appeared to be in good shape, advised  BoxingScene that he plans to make a come back towards the end of the year.

"I am looking at coming back sometime in November or December. That is the time frame we are looking at," said Wright.

Wright fought most of the top fighters of his generation in his weight class. He holds victories over fighters such as Tito Trinidad, Shane Mosley (twice), and Ike Quartey. He also battled Jermain Taylor to a draw and lost decisions to Bernard Hopkins and Fernando Vargas. 

Wright said that he is looking to land a meaningful fight that will motivate him to train hard.  When asked about a rematch versus his last opponent Paul Wlliams, Wright quickly shot that idea down. "If Williams was still undefeated or on a roll well yeah then it means something. I need a fight that means something.  I need the type of fight that I can get up for," revealed Wright to BoxingScene.

I like Winky, hopefully he can get a big fight but he's not a draw and brings an awkward style. that was always his problem, high risk low reward, and he thought he should be getting top dollar (similar to…
