As you may remember, I was touting King
as the second coming of Godard way back in his early days as a Blue.
Pass the crow, please.
Lack of playing time, or ''glass hand syndrome'', aside...
I can't think of any other true heavyweight that has disappointed me more this season.
That's why it was even more frustrating to see him start out (finally) like the ''King of old'' (under and over...switching hands)...only to get lid-popped, and revert back to his lame modern version.
Coincidence, or not...his luck seemed to have changed when he was forced to abandon his patented ''19'' once arriving in Washington.
Aside from it being ''The Number'', check out numerological irony
on the back of Westgarth's jersey.
What...?... Too obscure?
Had King early till he lost his helmet, Westgarth came back to earn the Draw.
I feel DJ can shorten his punch a little, He winds up from way behind which gives his opponent time to see and feel it coming.
Agreeing with the announcer..stamina/endurance could be better as well.
Guys like Cam Janssen would drool over this...
westgarth the win in a 6. this fight wasn't bad but i'm getting sick of heavyweight fights. they fight off the draw, they keep each other at arm's length, its all defense, i'm all for hockey fights, but i wouldn't give two green turds if these staged fights went the way of the beefalo. on a side note, i really like king, and feel sad for him and his fighting results right now.
