Former world champion Winky Wright hasn’t been seen in a boxing ring since his loss to Bernard Hopkins in July 2007, however Winky was recently spotted at Busch Gardens in Tampa with his son hand-feeding a giraffe on the theme park’s Serengeti Safari tour. Although not yet officially announced, Wright is slated to return on April 11 against Paul Williams at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

    For 18 years, Fightnews.com® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
