I regard Scott as probably the toughest matchup in the NHL, but not necessarily the best fighter. He uses his size well and has good balance for a guy his size, but his KO of Thornton was probably the exception to the rule. Most of his fights look like this: he gets in 5-10 short punches as his opponent holds his arms tight while looking for spots. Parros did an excellent job of holding Scott off and ending up landing the more significant punches overall. Despite that I think you have to call this bout a draw, both guys had their moments but not enough to sway it either way.
To be the true champ Scott is gonna Have to find a better way to get his arms free. Once he does that it's usually game over but he gets wrapped up an awful lot, maybe his only Achilles heel.
Don't know what you guys are watching.. Both guys were tired, if there was an edge it would go to Scott. And Scott would take care of Mac.. Apparently people still don't know how dangerous big John is.. After how many years and only one loss in the NHL? Parros is no joke... He is a heck of a fighter and he did a good job. But Scott still had an edge. I want to see round 3!
I'm glad Parros decided to go with Scott, because we all know what happened the last time they went... Parros did very well, and I'm not quite sure if he connected with that last left. I'm giving to Scott though, as much as I want to pick Parros.
Scott takes it... Parros, along with just about everyone, has difficulty with Scott's reach, and how can one not. Parros, still looking every bit as a heavier Dave Grohl, avoided the "Long Road to Ruin," and fared a lot better than their '09 bout. Orr laid out a blue print on how to do well against Scott, but not everyone has the stones and pure aggression of Orr to even come close to carrying it out.
