I like how Scott sizes up his opponents. Reminds me of when I visit the Red Light district and size up hookers.
westgarth with the win,alot of punches thrown by scott but uneffective,westgarth hung in there,everytime he got an arm free he threw a good one and connected,
took an hour to get going but turned out okay. going with a draw. scott is just so big, boogaard or chara are about the only people i can see beating that boeing wing span. 5.
Back on the horse for Westie
Much better showing this time for Westgarth. That Scott is a big boy, and Westgarth hung in there.
Westgarth went right out and challenged him, gutsy after the buttwhipping he got the last time. Westy fought a smart fight, stayed inside close, guarded his face and landed several nice shots, I give this one a draw as Scott did not do much and they basically eliminated each others threats.
edge scott and 5
The interview with KW between periods revealed that even he thought he couldn't hit Scott because of the wingspan. KW did better here than in the last mauling he took, but still a W for Big John.
Scott not performing as well in as he should have given the Yetiweight-Heavyweight disparity in the bout. Westgarth does no damage, but aside from a couple of decent connectionsto little effect, Scott doesn't either. Also, Scott does the I'm exhausted pulldown while Westgarth still seems ready to continue. Should be edge Scott, but I'll call it a draw based on what should have happened and what actually occurred.
Westgarth did much better against th ebigger Scott this time around. Scott went for the pulldown when Westgarth was still going at him. Draw...
DRAW in my book. Most of Scotts punches doesnt land well.
hehehe Westgarth is just frackin awesome. . .going after ont of the biggest guys in the league AGAIN. . .this time faring much better. One of these days he's gonna get his nose back. . .and he'll keep trying til he does.
Much better job by Westgarth this time around. Scott took the first part and Westgarth comes back towards the end and takes Scott down. Draw.
Westgarth is lucky Scott didn`t smash his face again , there was a few close calls in this scrap that could have demolished Westgarth again but he was fortunate to just stay out of the path of Scott`s right hand . Scott with the slight win but this guy is a force out there !
I wanted to give Westgarth some props for his ability to not get owned like last time but when he comes clapping out of the bout, b/c he did not need plastic surgery after this recent encounter, I retract all props for Garth. He hung in there with the best fighter in the league, lost by the smallest margin Scott has dished, and was mainly saved by Scott falling forward, allowing the refs to break it up. I think a lot of fighters and fans don't get how Scott is accustomed to not have to really fight hard, since all are puny to him, so fights look close b/c he restrains himself and sometimes just is like "whatever."
By the end of westgarths career he wil have spent all his money on plastic surgery the way he eats knuckles.
Tempted to give Westgarth the win simply because he still knew where he was when it was over ... He basically hung on and tried not to get hit with the cinder block that is John Scott's right...Clapping on his way to the box was pretty weak...I guess Westy's ok with "moral victories" but I thought that stopped in pee-wee's
Westgarth was happy he lived through it
Westgarth's got pluck getting right back in there.
Points for Westgarth to try Scott out again, but the size difference will always be a factor in it. It looks like in order for Westgarth to protect himself he wont be able to really throw a damn thing.
Westgarth with a respectable bout against big John Scott. Kevin still ate a couple shots but managed to dodge a few right handed nose breakers. I suppose that is what the clapping was for. Scott does seem to loose steam later in some bouts. Still a win on points for Scott.
Not sure how anyone saw this a W for Westgarth or even a draw. Scott dominated him and landed the cleaner harder blows. Props to Westgarth for taking on the monster again and hanging with him.
Scott wins but I give westie credit...still waiting for scott to go with an orr,boogie,chara, thornton,,,,
Anybody ever seen what this Westgarth guy looks like? He doesn't sit still long enough to get a look at him. I can't wait to see somebody drop that giant and his scowl. Big Georges would handle him I bet.
Scott wins. What was Westgarth clapping like an idiot for? He didn't win the fight (again).
Win Scott. At least Westgarth survived this one without any broken bones ;)
Westgarth was extremely happy after the bout. Because he was able to skate away. Win Scott.
Eh not as good as there last bout... but Scott still on top!
Looked like Scott was fighting a 12 year old..
westgarth is a pussy he got beat here and got beat last time and wouldn't even fight cam janssen who i can see im not wanting to fight him because he is a bad ass (neither did Jamal mayers) but clear win Scott in this OK scrap
If Scott has a weakness, or two, it's that he lacks a mean streak and it will cost him one of these days cause their are a lot of tough guys looking to make a name for themselves besides those who already have and will take advantage of of his easy tiring after a minute or so. the honeymoon he has enjoyed is about to run out and he better be ready cause no one is going to concede him the crown till he takes the Orr's, Thorton's , Boogaards, Godard's etc. around the league and show's he can sustain his energy throughout the fight.
bt wilson says a draw????????? NOT!!!!!!! Westgarth had better showing BUT A draw??? Put it htis way Westgarth didn't get bloodied this time
I think Westgarth might be able to bite through a nail.
What was Westgarth clapping about? Does one usually clap after losing?
BJS again. Score 2-0. Westgarth clapping because his nose didn't get broken again.
just realized...westgarth got his head punched off the glass..the last time they met. Much better showing this time. Gotta cheer for the kid..as he took on Scott again. Much better showing this time around. Didn't win...but i respect him for trying again.
Decisive Win BJS.
Westgarth with the much better show the second time around--translation: he didn't get his schnoz busted again. But Scott wins the bout on points. Oh, and the Hawks win the game.
I think that deep down inside of Scott's conscience...he intentionally stayed away from Westgarth's deviated septum , knowing very well that the healing process was still not complete... Slight edge to Scott.
Scott with the slight edge, but Westgarth hung in there. When I saw this, I thought I was going to see Westgarth get killed again. I still wish we could get Scott fighting McIntyre, Boogaard or maybe Chara. Watching this 6 foot eight guys fight makes the regular 6 foot 3 and 6 foot 4 guys look like midgets.
I like how Westgarth goes off clapping.....clapping that he didn't get his nose busted again.
Westgarth mostly covered up and tried not to get killed, but give him credit for taking on Scott again after getting rag-dolled.
Westgarth needs to stop fighting before he gets really hurt....
Scott with the win. Huge props to Westgarth for going at it again, and it turned out better than last fight's broken nose.
Westgarth was better in this fight, but the big JS still prevails. Westgarth probably feels like a king for doing that well against Scott anyway.
Westgarth in total defensive mode, but who can blame him, since he didn't wanna be THUNDERSTRUCK and be sniffin his own blood again. And, it's not good gettin yur beak smashed twice in 1 month. But, he needed to show-up to show his teamates that he's not a weenie. Nonetheless, the FORCE known as BIG JOHN SCOTT doing his thing, being a wrecking crew, PUMMELING anybody who dares challenge him. I'd like to see him PUMMEL Tootoo wednesday night, assuming they give lil' jordin a step-stool to stand on.
After getting his face rearranged a month prior to this, you would think Westgarth would have called in sick. Instead, he went right back after Scott. I'm glad he survived and I think by the way he was clapping after the fight, he was happy to have survived too.
Scott wins and clearly dominated. It is amazing that Westgarth was clapping, but I later learned that he was clapping because he didn't get killed, so now that makes sense.
Scott wins easily ... Westgarth is always game...
Westgarth faired much better this time but still loses to Scott. Id be clapping to if i went up against a giant and didnt get my face exploded again.
I will give the edge to Scott here but it was close! Is Scott the next Heavy weight chump in this league!
Scott with the win again, very good showing by westgarth. I'd like to see Scott face a bigger guy too, however the guys challenging him are all smaller! Eventually they'll play Edmonton1 Grimson wore # 23 in Chicago, not 32 as some are suggesting.
Very close fight. Westgarth seemed to be better at evading punches, and had the take-down. Edge Westgarth.
So people want to give Westgarth props for "going a second time with Scott" and for "hanging in with the big guy". Whatever. He loses another bout with Scott and then has the nerve to cheer for himself on the way to the box? Joke. Victory to Scott.
Westgarth got dominated AGAIN!!!! Scott controled this one all the way. I thought Westgarth was going to do a Lemiuex at the beginning and got popped a few times towards the end. I don't know why he's clapping at the end? Maybe his face didn't re-arrainged again?
westgarth was just happy to go to the box not needing repairs. edge scott
Round 3 coming up January 3!
After Scott landed a couple shots I was waiting for the Mortal Kombat voice to say "finish him," but BIG SCOTT showed a little mercy.
gave scott the edge in this fight. westgarth looked much better in this fight with scott than he did the last time they fought.
Scott with win here, pulls Westgarth down with him at the end. Westgarth hangs in but Scott had the better punches, control of the fight, and reach. As much as I like seeing Westgarth take on Scott again, it is close but not that close.
Grimson's number was 23, along with two other great Chicago athletes of the time.
good for westgarth to try and redeem himself for the beating scott threw him a couple weeks ago, but lets be honest, was it really getting up and giving yourself a round of applause worthy....noooo. Guy u lost the tilt, I guess hes just happy his nose wasnt broken again. why anyone would want to drop the mittens with scott is beyond me, guy was bread for this
Scott wins. Better showing for Westie. I thought he had a death wish but he learned to be more turtle/defense like. Still need to throw more to win.
Westy and the Sleestack pt.2,..edge to Westy since Im a homer and Sleestack was not impressive. need a head butt or eye rake for round three to really turn these 2 into rivals.
Most of Scott's did not land ,so I give this one to the smaller man.
Westgarth lands 1st and last shot good job westy
In the early part of the fight I saw nothing that landed cleanly; towards the end Westgarth started landing. When Scott landed it seemed he was off balance and not hitting with full strength. At the end, clearly gassed, Scott flops on his back as he eats an uppercut and drags Westie down on top of him. Win Westgarth. Westgarth seems to have learned from Cam Janssen. Fighters who grow stronger as the bout goes on have a decided advantage over Scott, if the refs will let it go long enough.
Westgarth with possibly the best showing ever vs. Scott.
I caught this one live. I saw it as a draw, and as such quite an improvement for Westgarth over the last one.
I saw an interview with John Scott after this game and he said that Westgarth actually challanged him to the fight! Hats off to Westgarth to get destroyed like he did last time and still come back and be willing to go with Scott agin!
Fairplay to Westy, a lot of fighters would have stayed clear after that last beating he took from Scotty. But he had a decent go here, Scott shades it. But Westy gets all the credit. I want Scott to take on Booger, Orr, Godard, Thronton now to see how good he actually is.
Decent fight... Draw
Westgarth really impressed me with that showing. I'm giving it a draw based on the way he hung in and came on strong at the end. Not too many would go again with Scott after the last fight.
Credit to Westgarth for returning for round 2 after the beating that was round 1. More credit for doing as good a job against Scott as anyone (hey when's that big guy going to fight a big guy?). But Scott controlled the fight so he gets the win. Westgarth isn't going to land too many punches when he's showing Scott the back of his helmet.
In Round 2 Westgarth fares much better, but still loses.
another example of the bored john scott, not the angry one, still he gets the edge here.
No blow-out this time - but, Westgarth loses again,.....
Who is putting this as a draw? Scott landed about 5 shots, Wg landed none. Easy win for Scott.
closer than the last one but still a win for scott. westgarth seems to be hiding his head in the beginning
Big John Studd edges The Hanson Brother....much better showing and tactics by THB
Scott was in complete control!!! As Much as I tend to diagree with Sedinfan on alot of reviews...He hits the nail on the head here!!!! These guys are freaks of nature!!!!
Props to Westgarth for learning from the first matchup. Scott with the win, but Kevin hung in pretty good, especially compared to last time.
Another win for Mr. Scott
Gutsy showing by westgarth
Gotta go with Scott again...that "couple in at the end" looked like only one solid one somewhere in there - Good to see Westgarth not back down
Scott easy. The kid was happy to survive....
Westgarth held his own but got a couple of big ones to the face
Kevin Westgarth did much better this time, not that that's an accomplishment. Scott remains undefeated.
A feel-good loss for Garth Hanson. I'm starting to believe that Scott's number choice, is Grimson related, after all.
My 1st response was "does westgarth like to get destroyed?" I thought he was gonna be a bloody mess again. Scott landed some heavy punches but Westgarth hung tough. Slight edge to Scott/
