LAS VEGAS -- Former three-time world champion Felix Trinidad will fight for the second time since coming out of retirement when he meets reigning 154-pound champion Winky Wright on May 14.

The fight, announced Thursday by promoter Don King, will be held at 160 pounds with no titles at stake.

Trinidad came off a layoff of more than two years to knock out Ricardo Mayorga in the eighth round last October in a middleweight bout. A former champion at 147, 154 and 160 pounds, he is 41-1 with 34 knockouts, losing only to middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins.

Wright (48-3, 25 knockouts) is coming off of back-to-back wins over Shane Mosley.

The fight will be held at the MGM Grand Hotel and will be televised on HBO pay-per-view.
