Chat with Winky Wright
The two will fight Saturday, December 2 at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, Fla. The bout starts at 9:45 p.m. ET/6:45 p.m. PT and can be seen on HBO.
Wright is coming off a controversial draw against Jermain Taylor in his last fight in June. The decision snapped his 11-fight win streak, a stretch of seven years, during which he won seven light middleweight title fights. Over his career, Wright is 10-3-1 in title fights.
Wright, 35, carries a record of 50-3-1 (25 KOs) into the ring Saturday. He made headlines last year when he finished a three-fight stretch where he faced Shane Mosley twice and Felix Trinidad, winning them all by the decisions.

What do you do on the day of a fight in order to prepare yourself? Are you superstitious?

No I'm not superstitious. I do whatever makes me comfortable. Basicly I chill out till its time to go fight.

Winky- If your fight with Quartey goes the distance, how will you fight the 12th round?
Winky Wright (3:15 PM)
If I'm winning the fight easily I'm going to continue with what got me there. I'm just going to win the fight, it may not get to the 12th.
