Jermain Taylor v.s Winky Wright
Middleweight Title Fight

This should be a good fight, great boxers and a title. I am having a hard time picking this one, Wright has more ring experience but Taylor is undefeated. This should be a slugfest! Taylor has beat Hopkins twice, and Wright took down Sugar Shane (a couple times) and Trinidad.

Good Fight

This is definitely the next major fight I can't wait to see. I'm glad that its not on Pay Per View and I would also expect this to be a slugfest. I really can't pick one, I'm just expecting to be entertained.

JT and Winky

As a JT fan, I must admit I want him to win and I know little about Wright.

But I have watched JT and the kid is a class act. He is a blue collar boxer. He gets the job done.

He has been underestamated by many boxing fans. Hopkins was no push over and he beat him 2 times.

I was glad to see BH came out in support to JT. A classey thing to do.

Plus the way he manhandled Tarver showed people JT was a lot better than some thought.

Taylor will beat Wright, I hope convincingly.

i have to disagree... Taylor fights more on the offensive side, but Winky Wright is arguably the Best defensive fighter alive right now... i think that Winkys defense is going to confuse Jermaine Taylor, and Winky will win this fight convincigly...

we will know Saturday

we will find out Sat. I expect to see JT win, he will be ready and he feels (and that all that matters) that he has something to prove.

He got very little respect for beating a very good Hopkins, 2 times. Tarver discovered last week Hopkins is still a much a man in the ring.

I do not keep up with Boxing I would like, but JT will win

Hopkins Vs Taylor 1 / Taylor Vs Wright

Yeah This Will Def. Be A Good Fight Im Goin With Winky On This One Even Though They Said Taylor Beat Hopkins.i Seen The Fight And Close Fights Usually Go 2 The Champ I Think They Were Just Tired Of Hopkins Dominating The Middlewieght Division And Wanted A New King Hopkins In My Opinion Won That Fight He Clearly Had Jermaine Taylor Hurt And On Quiz Street If U Look In Taylors Face After That Fight He New He Lost. But Once Again Hbo Judges Some How Had It Different ! Winky All The Way

its goin to be a chess match between both fighters winky with his sick defence an taylor with his strength...in see taylor more stronger than winky witch could be a problem for winky, but could taylor get by that whip like jab winky got??...taylor got emanuel stewart on his side now for the last six weeks could that make a diff in him winning or losing??...we will see it on saturday!!...taylor better not move to his right cause if he does we might see a whippn like trinidad got from winky, so lets keep it movin to left taylor an dont let winky rest keep the pressure on winky all night an the fight will be taylors all day...winky move an counter taylor when he comes in..the right uppercut wit a straight left is what he needs to do..pace an control the tempo of the fight an that should seal the deal!!! thats my point of view!!! saturday is to far away in my book:thumbsup: !!!

Wright seems always to be the underdog.

Taylor is favored and Wright has always been the underdog and has really shown himself to be a great fighter. So it is really a tough decision. My boyfriend is going w. Wright and I am going w. Taylor.

I'm not too surprised that Taylor is favored but I still think that right now the winner of the fight is just too close to call. It should be a good one.

Winky got screwed

Yes the fight was relatively close to call but you can't say that Winky Wright didn't win that fight. He showed technical skills and ocassional moments of brawling when necessary. Crowd pleasing with many exciting rounds. I have to give this fight to Winky.
