On paper, this match could have gone either way, but it would be the hockey Gods who would have the last say...
Thornton starts off well as usual, switching from right to left and back.
However Rupp staggers him with the uppercut and buckles his knees with the following rights.
Good bout !
With these two good lads, too bad someone has to loose.
TKO for Rupp.
Thornton just Got crunched !!!!!!
I have no doubt that man was in Quazzy Motto land when he went to the box!!!!!
to bad too cus he is one of my favorites and 8 outa 10 times he's gonna beat Rupp!!!!
Not tonight tho!!!!!
Always a punchers chance when guys are throwin em!!!!!
Hey pellet pistol!!!!! Your Creepin up the charts!!!!! :) Softened him up with the shoulder??????Lol Brother!!! Your BeanTown Boy got Bounced!!!!
god rupp what is your deal? marginal fighter against some but then pulls off an absolute gem against one of the toughest sons of bitches in thornton, on his home ice to boot. i have a soft spot for rupp, i wish he did this all the time. albeit i love thornton as well, so against other people would be tops. this is an 8, a great fight.
p.s. this fight was probably greater with only the sounds of my dryer in the background.
Thornton lost that one. Clear to see for everyone, even a B's fan. Can't win em all. This is his second loss this year out of 14. Not bad. He lost to Gillies too. He caught tagged with two bad ones in this fight. He almost didn't seem ready to battle. He had a terrible grip too. Oh well. BTW that's how it's done. When your team's guy loses a fight, you call it like you see it!
