Rupp early, Bord real advantage.....draw

Posted by Behn Wilson on March 17, 2013 at 10:30 AM

Great quick scrap between two serious dudes That win however marginal helps put Bordeleau's status in perspective and proves beyond a doubt that he's the real deal

Posted by curtainjerker on March 16, 2013 at 06:20 PM

Pretty sad that the public address guy has to tell Colorado fans to make some noise just after Bordeleau won a fight. .

Posted by bajo39 on March 17, 2013 at 03:07 PM

You people have lost your minds. I've seen enough of Bordeleau in the A to know that he is a legitimate top 5 fighter active in the Show right now. That he beats Rupp here is no surprise at all; that he comes back from getting wobbled early speaks to his heart; and that he gets the hockey KO late speaks to his power.

Too close to call....

Posted by HchVegasNHL57 on March 17, 2013 at 04:16 AM

Nice little tilly here. Two big boys goin the knuckle. The see sawing form of rupp has been sawing in the direction of pretty solid since he pulled on a wild jersey. Impressive showing by both boys Could only give this a draw. But if giving edges gets you moist in the panties. Then bordy gets the edge.

Young Sherriff vs Veteran Beat Cop...HELLUVA DRAW. Bordy's on the RISE.

bordeleau lands nothing

Rupp with the win

Posted by Pindar on March 17, 2013 at 03:28 AM

Very close fight.

Posted by Jmoy on March 17, 2013 at 11:17 AM

Good tilt. Lots of big shots, some even connected a bit. Not sure if the last shot put Rupp down but since he went to the dressing room right away with 15 minutes left in the period, he must have been hurt. So even though very close, Bordeleau gets the W and I hate to say that as a Wild fan.

Posted by CofRed92 on March 17, 2013 at 08:20 AM

no idea how you people can vote this a 6.6 rated fight.....whatever. Win Bordy

Posted by ISYSpanther on March 31, 2013 at 09:44 PM

If we went by dominance, this fight would be a tie (Rupp was in control to start, then bourdeleau finished him off). But this isn't about dominance, this is about who won and who loss. Bourdy won. And this is coming from a Wild fan. Bourdeleau won.

Posted by bustalip on March 17, 2013 at 09:05 PM

Rupp isn't a true heavywieght. Once he gets hit usually bows out

Posted by fernben8 on March 16, 2013 at 05:00 PM

Bordeleau impressed me here on how he handled Rupp... Rupp got knocked down after taking one to the back of his neck.

Posted by The Mad House on March 16, 2013 at 11:34 PM

Bordeleau beats another legit guy... I am eagerly awaiting March 27 for when the Avs take on the Flames, and hopefully we see The Bordeleau Show and McGrattan square off.

Posted by DARCY T on March 17, 2013 at 06:52 AM

rupp landed more than bordeleau who's main target was opponent's shoulder pad again but it looked like rupp bailed out at the end that's why im calling it edge bordeleau...and 6

Posted by sporr on March 17, 2013 at 11:34 AM

Rupp gets a good one in early then the kid collects himself and pours it on. All Bordy after the good early shot by Rupp. Slight edge to Bordy.

Posted by staceyb on March 17, 2013 at 08:17 PM

Two big tall dudes with a long reach in a spirited battle that goes to Bordy.

Posted by The_Rickster on March 16, 2013 at 04:56 PM

Slight edge to Bordeleau. The last punch hit the helmet and the momentum carried Rupp to the ice.

Posted by sedinfan on March 16, 2013 at 07:02 PM

Bordeleau is my rookie of the year, i love watching him fight. He is a future heavyweight contender.

Posted by AC1026 on March 17, 2013 at 10:54 AM

Got to give it Bordeleau. Close and a 6

Posted by the kid 61 on May 15, 2016 at 06:46 PM

The french fry did good. But rupp is on tv now and he is driving on stinky busses eating nasty fast food. God bless america.

Posted by ColoAvs1 on March 17, 2013 at 10:58 PM

nice fight! Win B...

Posted by canamrugby on March 17, 2013 at 11:21 AM

Easy win for Bordeleau over one of the league's biggest punching bags in Mike Rupp.

Posted by scooter231 on March 17, 2013 at 07:28 AM

Bordy taking on all in the NHL. Watching him for years for the Lake Erie Monsters I knew he would be good in the show. Win Bordy!

Posted by Kordic64 on March 16, 2013 at 06:23 PM

This fight is proof decisions are subjective. For me, Bordeleau wins.

Posted by woolly mammoth on March 16, 2013 at 04:27 PM

It was close, but Bordeleau won in my humble opinion.

Posted by bammer24 on March 16, 2013 at 11:05 PM

When you look at it Bordeleau matched up with Rupp in size and reach and then proceded to connect till Rupp went down like an oak tree.Rupp was lucky he didn`t get Dziurzynski`ed.Bordeleau with a good showing on still trying to make his path. I think It`s March 31st that Colorado plays the Flames great test is if he goes with McGratton.That would be the one to watch for.

Posted by 69MasonStorm69 on March 18, 2013 at 09:11 AM

Bordy with a close comeback win. He is establishing himself as one of the league's best fighters. Could be real dangerous if he improves his balance.

Posted by kleptothief on March 16, 2013 at 09:30 PM

waiting for THorr vs Bordy! sum1 gonna get KOd lolz

Posted by mmadced on March 17, 2013 at 12:27 PM

clear draw

Posted by GreatMurray on March 16, 2013 at 06:11 PM

Way to go boys. Good job! Good hockey fight. Draw!

Posted by kkdowning on March 18, 2013 at 10:27 AM

Rupp comes out on fire, but Bordeleau hangs in there and turns it on at the end for a win (but not by much)

Posted by honest truth on March 16, 2013 at 08:20 PM

The three fight champ gets off the deck to edge the always capable Mike Rupp.

Posted by endor on March 16, 2013 at 11:08 PM

This Bordeleau is a beast--best fighter I've seen in the NHL this year! Wish the Avs could pay as well as he fights! After taking a couple of Rupp's best shots, he just puts Rupp's ass on the ice. Not even close.......

Posted by jd332001 on March 16, 2013 at 05:03 PM

good little battle, Rupp starts quick and then gets tagged and cut under his eye. slight edge Bordeleau

Posted by BruinsAllDaySon on March 16, 2013 at 04:53 PM

Had to give Bordeleau the W because his last punch ended the fight as Rupp looked wobbly on his way down - from a boxing background I know how frustrating that can be to lose your legs from a shot even though your head is fine (non-concussion "wooziness") and you're screwed for like 10 seconds... Classy fight - both men knew when it was over and that was that.

Posted by byersrules on March 16, 2013 at 05:48 PM

Bords with the close win. Give it to Rupp for hanging in there. Looks like Bordeleau needs to find a bigger boy to beef with. Would love to see Scot.t go with him

Posted by biga0201 on March 16, 2013 at 04:15 PM

Good fight.Both fighters were throwing big punch's. Bordeleau scored better punch's. Def nod to him.

Posted by hockey450 on March 16, 2013 at 05:40 PM

Bordeleau is a stud, cant score a goal to save his life but you better be ready to go to the ice if you drop the gloves with him.

Posted by FightMonster75 on March 18, 2013 at 11:14 AM

Rupp comes out like a man on fire but Bordeleau hangs tight and finishes with a flurry of fists. Advantage Bordeleau but by a razor close decision and secures his place as one of the up and coming bangers in the league.

Posted by chedwards14 on March 17, 2013 at 06:26 PM

Being an Avs fan seeing bordy fight for us is an honor! Mark my words this guy will be widely known as an elite fighter in the show very soon.

Posted by BigBriSandor on March 16, 2013 at 09:12 PM

Rupper wtf. Was hoping for a better effort. Bordeleau.

Posted by Kenora Thistles on March 17, 2013 at 04:28 AM

Pretty sure this makes Bordeleau 5-0 in the NHL. He hasn't taken on any scrubs either

Posted by RockemSockem16 on March 18, 2013 at 05:12 PM

Win Bordeleau. On his way to becoming a dominant heavy weight

Posted by Bosoxshute on March 16, 2013 at 04:32 PM

Bordeleau is emerging as one of the best fighters in the league. Awesome to see Rupp was cut also

Posted by Derek16 on March 16, 2013 at 04:42 PM

B over R

Posted by SouthPaw017 on March 16, 2013 at 10:30 PM

Bordeleau impresses once again.... Slight edge here with a strong finish...

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on March 25, 2013 at 11:44 PM

Bordeleau hammered Rupp with some killer bombs. Nice scrap.

Posted by chad420 on March 18, 2013 at 12:41 PM

Its PB&J time

Posted by Big_Fat_Dan on March 18, 2013 at 07:39 AM

Im going draw with this one, very close.

Posted by Jdaman75 on March 16, 2013 at 04:47 PM

Win Bordeleau as he dominates Rupp at the end.

Posted by tyrone on March 17, 2013 at 07:55 PM

Pearl Vision is calling for the AVS fans. F'ing morons. Clear win by the Ruppster.
