‘Most feared’ fighters collide!

Former undisputed junior middleweight world champion Ronald “Winky” Wright (51-4-1, 25 KOs) and two-division world champion Paul “The Punisher” Williams (36-1, 27 KOs) hosted a media conference call today to discuss their fight on April 11th at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. “True champions fight each other,” said Winky who is fighting for the first time since his loss to Bernard Hopkins in July 2007. “I want to fight the best.” The Punisher vowed that he’s ready and said he’s happy that Winky agreed to fight him. “It will be the date the two most feared fighters meet,” commented Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer, who named Arthur Abraham, Vernon Forrest, Mikkel Kessler and Jermain Taylor as fighters who have passed on fights with Winky. Williams’ promoter Dan Goossen said, “Winky has been the most avoided fighter, Paul has been the most feared fighter.” He added that Williams is fighting at 160 lbs. because no one at 147 or 154 will fight him. He said Williams wants a fight with WBA welterweight champion Shane Mosley after this fight.
