Ronald Lamont "Winky" Wright (born November 26, 1971) is an American former boxer. During his professional career he was recognized as the undisputed champion at light-middleweight, and fought many notable world champions including Shane Mosley, FA(C)lix Trinidad, Jermain Taylor, Ike Quartey, Fernando Vargas, Bernard Hopkins and Paul Williams. Wright announced his retirement from boxing on June 4, 2012, following a loss to Peter Quillin.
