Wright-Margarito in the works for October 7!

Earlier today Bob Arum formally offered Ronald "Winky" Wright (Winky Promotions) a career high payday to face Antonio Margarito at the Thomas and Mack Arena on HBO PPV on October 7. If both sides are able to come to terms the bout will take place at 154 pounds. Although exact terms of the offer are unknown as this goes to print, Boxingtalk can guarantee our readers that Wright is currently being offered more money to fight Antonio Margarito than he made for Jermain Taylor, Felix Trinidad and either of his fights with Shane Mosley. More to follow, REMEMBER WHERE YOU HEARD IT FIRST!
