Say what you will about him...
you have to admire Downie's 'never say no' attitude.
This time, he starts out well, looking like a young Darcy Tucker,
but Coburn eventually establishes reach,
and proceeds to go all...
''Hawks-Flyers defenceman who was famous for his uppercuts'',
who's name escapes me...on him...
while Downie goes all ''Paul Baxter''..
Downie actually got off to a good start till Coburn kept him out of reach...
Nice combos of overhands and uppercuts to keep Downie off balance.
It's been a while since i've seen a fighter ask the refs to save their bacon like that,
I feel the refs could have stepped in a punch or two earlier...even if it was Downie.
Smart fight by Coburn, give it a 7.
Downie biting off a bit more than he can chew, here. Second fight this season where someone found themselves in that position with someone who could still reach their head with uppercuts. Shorter guys better adjust to this and get in and hug for dear life or there will be blood.
