This could be a nightmare matchup, I know, in terms of entertainment value. However, I wonder how mayweather will figure Wright out, and how and if Winky Wright can find a way to beat Floyd. At 154, Wright could give Floyd quite a lot of trouble. He has good jab and is a lefty. He retreats into his shell guard and has long arms, which can be real problem for Mayweather. How will this fight go?

Not too sure how it will pan out but it would be one hell of a boring fight

Wright. And I disagree, I would be an interesting fight, just no knockdowns.

If watching Wright throw his jab is interesting then i suppose so.  Wright would win this with his jab pretty clearly.  At his best he was too big for Floyd and he just didn't offer up much of anything to hit.  Floyd would be in range for Wright's jab before he could get off any of his own punches and Wright would use the jab to offset him so that he couldn't just leap in with a right hand counter or left hook.  I'm sure Floyd would make adjustments, but guys with good jabs and less defensive skill than Wright have given Floyd problems (Castillo's jab was a problem for Floyd, as was Cotto's).  Wright, with his size advantages would present too much of a problem.

Winky's jab wouldn't land much on Floyd.
