Winky Wright:

 “I get a lot of people asking me why I’m not fighting. I tell them it has nothing to do with negotiations, it’s because no one wants to fight me. No one wants to fight Winky Wright. They say it’s about the money, but it isn’t that. I wanted to fight Pavlik and Calzaghe, I’d go to England to fight him if he wanted, but the fact of the matter is, no one wants to fight Winky.”


“I’m looking forward to the challenge, I want to show I’m more than a defensive fighter. Yeah I’m a defensive fighter, but I’ve never seen a boxer win a match without throwing punches. I’m definitely gonna need my defense against Paul, because he throws a lot of punches. I don’t go for the knockout, boxing is a sport and it takes more than that.”

Paul Williams:
“I’m blessed to be here, and I’m ready to fight Winky.”
“He’s a big name in boxing and I’m gonna try my best like in my past fights.”
“I don’t do a lot of talking, I do my talking in the Ring. I just want to work hard and have a good time.”
