I give Janssens the edge with those lefts near the end of the fight. Very close fight. Not many punches before those really hit the mark.

great fight, asham starts better early, but janssen soon takes over and lands a few more than asham, narrow win janssen..love the islander announcers they aren't homers and call the fights well

Posted by LetsGoDevils on February 18, 2007 at 04:12 PM

CJ with a huge upopercut at the end!

Posted by brad houghton on February 19, 2007 at 03:53 PM

very good fight....Asham early Janssen late...... i would call it a draw with both guys throwing and landing close to the same amount of punches. These two guys have had three great fights and there isn't much that seperates them as fighters.....good to see them both active again!!

Posted by skater4lifexx66 on February 18, 2007 at 09:33 PM

From watching the begining it was all Asham,but then Jansenn managed to come back with some weak blows and turn the tables, so even though Asham got hte better hits in there, I'll vote it a draw.

great bout..both

Another good long battle between these toughest middleweights. Draw.

Posted by KORPI24 on February 19, 2007 at 09:43 AM

HARD TO PICK A WINNER HERE. VERY GOOD, AND VERY CLOSE FIGHT. ASHAM WAS FOR SURE WINNING AT THE HALFWAY POINT, JANSSEN CAME BACK AND THESE GUYS CERTAINLY DESERVE A FIVE MINUTE REST.

Posted by sconnell on February 18, 2007 at 08:33 PM

i didnt get to see the fight until now. i was listening to the game on the radio and the announcers sounded like they were calling a boxing match. it seemed like the upper cut that janssen landed did some damage to asham.

Posted by Joey_Kocur_26 on February 19, 2007 at 06:33 AM

Go Asham!

Posted by aerotunes on February 20, 2007 at 12:48 PM

two great guys ... classic stuff here ... from two classy guys!

Posted by Diehardfan419 on February 19, 2007 at 03:26 PM

Looked like Asham hurt Jansenn pretty good early on.

Posted by rj6947 on January 26, 2008 at 10:38 PM

decent fight.

Posted by adelvecchioeasy on February 19, 2007 at 07:06 PM

Fun Fight. Asham really had a great hold on Janssens. Hit him quite a few times before Janssens was able to switch off to the left and caught him. So glad Cam is back. One of my favorites.

Posted by Rebel Banker on February 18, 2007 at 09:24 PM

Good fight...Asham landed more effective punches early but ran out of gas...Janssen lands one big one late but was shutout early...Asham win

Posted by Gunslinger on February 19, 2007 at 10:07 AM

Good fight with Asham winning due to the early fight dominance he had over Janssen. Both are very good fighters with big hearts. Asham is one of the best light heavyweights in the league.

Posted by Cinematic on February 19, 2007 at 01:42 PM

asham smashes this guy every time like cake.

Posted by nstars27 on February 20, 2007 at 12:57 AM

asham early asham middle draw at the end

Posted by FlagsFan on February 19, 2007 at 01:01 PM

Good fight,Asham landed more and better punches,Janssen landed very few he tried in the end.Win Asham

Posted by shane0mack on February 23, 2007 at 01:20 AM

asham started off great and while janssen finished strong, i can't give him much credit. If you look closely, Asham was tired and wanted to stop/end the fight but Janssen kept going. especially the last uppercut. though i guess you can't blame Janssen for wanting to get/give some of those punches back. but asham had better, more powerful punches with the good arm which is better than to have one or two weak-arm haymakers. but for the most part a very good fight and i look forward to every isles-devils game with hope that these two will go at it again. always a good, fair match-up.

Posted by BladesForever on April 17, 2007 at 09:53 AM

Even fight but Asham ran out of Gas at the end. If the Refs don't break it up he gets pummeled to the ice (if Janssen had enough energy left)

Posted by SCOTTSO on February 18, 2007 at 08:02 PM

Asham Started Strong,throwing Over Hand Rights ,janssens Got Stronger When They Started Throwing Lefts Overall Pretty Even.these Two Put On A Great Show Every Time They Fight!

Posted by Togalthorpe on March 06, 2008 at 02:23 PM

good start for asham, but janssen finished strong. good show fellas

Posted by allstarv2003 on February 18, 2007 at 12:42 PM

One of the best and longest fights all season. It was very close but Janssen had enough left in the tank to get a few shots in at the end.

Posted by hlaverty06 on December 26, 2011 at 03:10 PM

I don't see how you can pick against Cam.??? Its not how you start but how you finish.

Posted by muskokadangler on November 08, 2009 at 06:37 AM

I called it a draw because Assham couldn't fight anymore and Jans didn't get the chance to beat him down which I believe he would have done. If the refs come in and stop the fight because you can't fight anymore I will not give the win even if you have the higher punch count!!!

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on March 10, 2015 at 01:34 AM

Asham smashed Janssen in the mush with a couple of dandies.

Posted by es6115 on March 26, 2007 at 12:46 AM

good fight....Asham dictated the course and landed a couple more so i give it to him.

Posted by corboy on February 18, 2007 at 08:56 PM

asham by a nod for throwing and landing more.

Posted by FistofFury on February 20, 2007 at 12:20 AM

I wonder what they said to each other? I sure wish Van could try get Asham! Asham landed better power shots and got a clear win, in my eyes. The punches near the end weren't nearly as strong as they were at the beggining

Posted by RockD on February 18, 2007 at 08:53 PM

Nice bout :)

Posted by stumpysnapshot on February 20, 2007 at 02:02 PM

Asham is the best in his weight class. No question about it.

Posted by d-wreck_fayce on February 18, 2007 at 12:12 PM

great long fight. they were tired at the end of the fight, janssen got a good uppercut in at the end

Posted by hazard5 on February 19, 2007 at 02:30 PM

even until Janssen delivered that HUGE uppercut at the end. the refs rushed in to save Asham. win Cam.

Posted by goon365 on February 19, 2007 at 12:58 PM

Asham had more connections in the beginning, but just like most Janssen scraps he comes on late and wins the bout with a tired Asham bent over getting fed a few late lefts.

Posted by StlSot on February 19, 2007 at 11:48 PM

Asham, saved by the bell,,,errr,,,,refs

Posted by pbag on February 19, 2007 at 02:22 PM

Asham early Jannsen late. Looks like Arron got stung by a left at the end....great fight and Asham have another good showing against Janssen

Posted by hoekster316 on February 18, 2007 at 10:25 PM

Awesome bout. Trademark Janssen fight in which he hangs on and weathers the early storm, but then "hulks up" and gets the better of his opponent by the end.

Posted by BENNETTWOLF on February 19, 2007 at 02:10 PM

Good, long, strategic fight between the two well matched opponents as usual. Asham had a good edge early, scoring with a couple rights while holding Cam at bay but Jannssen came back with a flurry of lefts late and was fresher. I gave him the win for those two reasons. Close to a draw but Cam really came on and if allowed to keep going might have polished off a tired Asham for a clear win in this close series.

Posted by slysi on September 08, 2015 at 08:45 PM

ASHAM either got tagged at the end ....or run out of steam

Posted by RYouMental on February 19, 2007 at 10:41 AM

Great fight...had they not stopped them Cam would have finished Asham after that uppercut. Overall great fight for both.

Posted by slshbleed on February 19, 2007 at 01:53 PM

Fight of the year. I got Janssen at the end.

Posted by AaronScott on March 05, 2009 at 10:31 PM

Bruins fan here and I like both fighters but the edge goes to Janssen.

Posted by smooth361 on February 20, 2007 at 07:08 PM

Cam Janssen is just a tough guy, not that big, but can hit & take a punch. Never gives up. Alway's look forward to viewing his matches.

Posted by gord400 on April 02, 2007 at 10:41 AM

Janssen is a tough guy, and hangs in there with a tough guy till he turns the tide of the bout with his left hand. No doubt, Janssen with the win!

Posted by WombRipper on February 18, 2007 at 06:56 PM

If asham doesn't tire, its all asham.

Posted by spw on February 19, 2007 at 02:55 PM

asham is one of my favorite fighters in the league. Jannsen is tough but i don't like how he hangs back and throws punches from a distance. Anyway, Asham came out and won this fight. Out punched Jannsen and showed he can throw with his left as well as his right, although it looked liked jannsen did land a big uppercut that buckled ashams legs as the refs were stepping in. decision- asham

Posted by rangers11ranger on February 18, 2007 at 10:24 PM

Jan got the better at the end but it still gose to ash for the overal win! but close

Posted by sk8rkidd25 on February 19, 2007 at 09:56 PM

Good Fight Janssen's shots at the end won it though. Refs had to save Asham after the uppercut. Can't wait until they play again on March 22nd. Looking Foward to another good fight

Posted by probie_fan on February 18, 2007 at 08:57 PM

All Asham. He pounds Janssen every time they fight. Janssen got a couple weak lefts in at the end when they got all twisted around.
