Brutal TKO/KO. One of the best/worst I've seen in a while. I think BJ was stunned early in the fight because he was just kind of standing there in the middle. It was ALL Rinaldo in this one. And I have to say, I originally thought the last punches were borderline, but if you listen to Zac's audio in the headline link, he seems very genuine that he it wasn't intentional. I'm taking it for heat of the moment aggression.
POS Rinaldo landed 2 punches...they just happened to connect very well. But of course, like regular trash fromPhilly Rinaldo has to take a few extra cheap shots when BJ was on the ground. Its reasons like that, that nobody likes Philly and especially players like Rinaldo
Gutless move by Rinaldo. Pierre Maguire actually took time out from aslking Giroux to marry him to point out the obvious cheap shots. Good fighter or not, it was classless to throw 3 punches INCLUDING the KO punch, after he already won and the guy was down . WHEN Rinaldo gets his due, above board or not, he won't get any sympathy from the rest of the league.
Can't say as I care for Rinaldo's shots after Crombeen is down on one knee. Those shots are what really hut Crombeen. This is typical of Rinaldo, he's a dirty fighter, he never shows respect for his opponents and those guys usually get hurt before very long.
KO by Rinaldo. A few pretty big shots landed and put him to sleep for a bit. But I am surprised that Crombeen got up so quickly. He looked like a medical tech would be needed. I'd imagine he is kept out of the lineup in upcoming week(s).
