Wright Opens The Door For Trinidad Vs. Quartey or Taylor!
Undisputed junior middleweight king, Ronald "Winky" Wright told Boxingtalk.com it's going to take more than the $3M Don King Productions is currently offering for him to fight Felix Trinidad on March 12. Although Wright is still a promotional free agent, his legal team has given promoter Gary Shaw temporary authorization to negotiate this fight with DKP. Shaw told Boxingtalk.com, "The Trinidad's are very honorable people, so I'm wondering if this is King making the offer because I don't think the Trinidad's would be that disrespectful for a $10M Trinidad, $3M Winky. This is the the undisputed junior middleweight champion we're talking about." If Team Wright opts against fighting Trinidad for $3M, this opens the door for Jermain Taylor and Ike Quartey, the other two names Don King has mentioned publicly to land the fight with Trinidad. Promoter Lou DiBella, who promotes BOTH Taylor and Quartey assured Boxingtalk.com that neither of his fighter's would pass up such an offer from DKP. Remember where you heard it first! (5:00 PM ET)
