Entertaining bout with both guys hanging in there and trading.

crap fight draw

Posted by Ragtop1day on March 20, 2008 at 05:48 PM

nice fight....not sure who really got the best, both seemed to land a share

Posted by njteech on March 20, 2008 at 04:19 PM

good bout

Posted by Santokh_Gill on March 20, 2008 at 05:28 PM

Excellant !...........good fight , i'd give it a draw , but brad should of done better ..

Posted by rawsiefilnredom on March 20, 2008 at 08:41 AM

Great fight. I voted "draw," but give Barch a slight nod for rocking May on at least one occasion.

Posted by Peters_4_Prez on March 20, 2008 at 09:56 PM

Great bout between these two! A mid 90's May would have destroyed Barch, but what can you do. May is still an absolute warrior in 2008. Glad to see him still dropping the gloves!

Posted by Brashearfan on March 20, 2008 at 10:44 AM

Nice fighting. Others should take notes.

Posted by Spon on March 22, 2008 at 06:16 PM

GREAT FIGHT! Free swinging away like crazy guys. Good one.

Posted by ETR on March 20, 2008 at 09:45 PM

Very entertaining scrap, have to call it a draw. Both guys were throwing after a slow start.

Posted by Poop Jack Pappy on March 20, 2008 at 05:43 PM

This is the correct way for two pugilists to conduct a brawl. Barch is landing rights and May is connecting with lefts. I can't wait for the rematch on the 30th. Great fight and a draw

Posted by goonery31 on March 20, 2008 at 08:29 PM

May believe it or not is one of the toughest players to ever play the game ever.This one here is a prime example,he has done this his whole career. Solid toe to toe fights! Hats off for May.

Posted by tim13 on March 20, 2008 at 05:16 PM

Come on guys... that's a draw.

Posted by Ryan_GS on March 20, 2008 at 11:15 AM

These 2 never disappoint. No winner but then again I dont think there ever is with these 2, its always a good brawl with much respect on either side.

Posted by BigPapa08 on March 20, 2008 at 09:01 PM

Good fight, call it a draw

Posted by MNBonecrusher on March 20, 2008 at 08:05 AM

Very good scrap! No clear victory either way. Draw.

Posted by Humper on March 20, 2008 at 11:43 AM

Me like, me like. Pretty good fight, I call it a draw but no argument if you picked either one over the other.

Posted by jkluhr on March 20, 2008 at 12:45 PM

Awesome fight, both had some great shots in there and both were throwing plenty, nice to see.

Posted by KORPI24 on March 20, 2008 at 08:53 AM

I was watching the game and one of the announcers said after the fight that this game should start having an undercard, perfectly put. Great fight again !

Posted by irishboybrian on March 20, 2008 at 03:49 PM

Really good fight from a guy who collects a check from the Ducks while on Social Security (May) and a guy with a girlie first name (Barch)

Posted by br4incell on March 20, 2008 at 03:06 PM

Those were some haymakers boy, and they both took a few on the button. Especially that first good solid punch from Barch, But it woke May up and he got mean. I love those scraps.

Posted by cabsf15e on March 20, 2008 at 11:53 AM

Great fight!! Too close to to call it a draw!!

Posted by mikebflorida on March 20, 2008 at 09:51 AM

Great fight, what more can you say? If you pick a winner from this, please get off this site. It's a draw!

Posted by BrianTheAdsFan on March 20, 2008 at 10:28 AM

Great fight. Just when I was going to turn to one fighter, the other lands and evens it up. Draw.

Posted by slav on March 20, 2008 at 12:04 PM

Great fight! Very close. Both continued to throw and land. Great endurance by both. Gotta give it a draw....

Posted by tschaar2000 on March 30, 2008 at 08:38 PM


Posted by HockeystarIowa on March 24, 2008 at 11:28 PM

I was in the stand and have my own vid. This was another classic slugfest from May and Barch. Draw. Not sure what may was throwing his hands in the air after the fight for. Wouldnt expect that from a guy that is usually an honorable fighter. (Not in the vid shown)

Posted by jcm on March 20, 2008 at 06:02 PM

This is how you do it boys, (Laroque,Cote, and all you huggers out Brad May has been doing this for soooo long, and he has never "Selected" his opponents. Give him credit for going with some of the big boys that he probably should have NOT gone with. Anyways, this was a dandy, and a flurry by both gentlemen. Too close for me to call, but very entertaining. Now can we get ALL the "Huggers" on one side of the room, and all of the "Dancers" on the other side, and pay attention, dammit! And if you're wearing a visor, well, if you're wearing a visor, just forget it, you'll never get it...!

Posted by Clark75 on March 20, 2008 at 08:50 PM

Always a great scrap when these two guys drop the mitts.

Posted by Habs # 1 on March 20, 2008 at 04:02 PM

great scrap here ;)

Posted by IMTank on October 22, 2008 at 06:25 PM

Great bout!

Posted by Dovermv on March 20, 2008 at 12:48 PM

I love these two fighters.

Posted by jim_young on March 20, 2008 at 04:57 PM

I gave it a draw but if I had to pick, the edge would go to Barch for a couple more cleaner shots. Good scrap.

Posted by anc2514 on March 20, 2008 at 03:59 PM

Good fight, thought Barch had an edge, but too close to call, has to be a draw.

Posted by RPULTZ on March 20, 2008 at 08:11 PM

Greatest Mano y mano fight rivalries EVER!!!!!

Posted by justinfrowein on March 22, 2008 at 05:40 PM


Posted by The Peach on March 20, 2008 at 05:20 PM

may is a stout boy but an easy target for a skilled fighter. he throws hard but slow and exposes himself badly everytime he launches a shot. barch is just too lean and too worried about self preservation to capitalize. entertaining scrap though.

Posted by OriginalSix on March 20, 2008 at 11:49 AM

WIN May for landing the better punches and throwing more. What a rivalry!

Posted by lovejoy on March 20, 2008 at 08:08 AM

nice, long, exhausting fight. may connected better, edge to him.

Posted by wallysy1 on March 21, 2008 at 09:29 PM

i like may better--but barch honestly won. tempted to give it a draw --just out of respect for both fighters--but the quality and quantity go to barch

Posted by jraudi79 on March 22, 2008 at 09:03 PM

not to bad of a scrap

Posted by snowave on March 21, 2008 at 12:54 AM

another great rematch.. love the enthusiasm.. i bet these guys would be best friends off the ice..

Posted by Juha82 on March 22, 2008 at 07:41 AM

May got the edge because of better/harder shots. Barch did well(of course!) but May finds well the target. A great toe to toe part where May got the best punch in.

Posted by razor 32 on March 20, 2008 at 02:42 PM

You can tell that they were playing in Dallas cause those to guys thought Barch was hitting May everytime his arm moved. I saw one solid hit the whole fight by May. These two have punched each other too many times now, and they dont like it. Barch you are better off fightin Meon or Parros or Pronger. Draw

Posted by Fight227 on March 20, 2008 at 08:17 PM

They were both landing a lot of punches but May had a lead because he was landing hard punches fright in the middle of Barch's face

Posted by Bradmay10 on March 20, 2008 at 09:38 PM

may landed more

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on January 21, 2013 at 07:30 PM

Awesome fight!!! May landed some tremendous lefts at first while Barch's ineffective punches were just connecting with Mays shoulder. The end got closer, but May punished Barch pretty badly at the beginning.

Posted by Grim420 on March 20, 2008 at 11:22 AM

it was a good fight the best proly all year cant say either won. i want to see thes guys all the time may old school

Posted by BattleAxe13 on March 20, 2008 at 10:59 PM

Great fight! These two had a great one earlier in the year too. May gets the edge here, his punches really rocked Barch. Barch hung in there and had some momentum in the middle but May took over and controlled the majority of the fight.

Posted by goalieds41 on March 23, 2008 at 02:25 AM

The early domination of may with the barrage of lefts is why I gave him the win but Barch landed several good ones too I thought this was a great bout

Posted by SOCALFAN on March 20, 2008 at 08:44 PM

great fight. May a very slight edge. Got to hand it to both of them for the effort.

Posted by trpaulson on March 20, 2008 at 05:14 PM

Barch landed a few more. Decent fight between two honest fighters.

Posted by Wildfan01 on March 20, 2008 at 02:47 PM

Barch lands best punch and stays active landsmore of the glancing blows due to activity. Barch wins.

Posted by dmckearn on March 20, 2008 at 12:44 PM

May needs to retire. His prime has passed him a along time ago, maybe even way back in Buffalo. Very close, I'll give a slight edge to Barch for being more aggressive, landing more, and not slapping or swinging his elbow pad (a la Mark Recchi).

Posted by Jellyczar on March 23, 2008 at 11:34 PM

Slight edge to Barch...he wanted it more.

Posted by Gunslinger on March 23, 2008 at 07:53 PM

These boys sure do know how to fight! I wish everyone else fought like this. I give the edge in this one to Barch.

Posted by Scott4 on March 20, 2008 at 08:42 AM

Great fight as usally :). I give slidge edge to Barch because he makes good work at the end.

Posted by jealeman on March 20, 2008 at 12:29 PM

Wow. Can we have these two dance every night for a different team? Their four scraps this year have been entertaining. Almost a draw, but I did see Barch snap May's head back a few times to give him the slight edge.

Posted by chl37 on March 20, 2008 at 07:57 AM

close fight. i'll give the edge to barch for a few more landing.

Posted by yoach on March 20, 2008 at 04:45 PM

very good fight . i agree , others should take note ( uhumm) BGL . i think Barch got a few better shots in than May . edge to Barch but a great close fight .

Posted by Hell of a TILT on March 20, 2008 at 12:58 PM

Barch landed more blows and blocked pretty much every attempt by May.....I give the decision to Barch!!

Posted by Clarky 33 CAN on December 31, 2008 at 12:49 AM

Another old school battle. Round two only a slight drop from round 1 this season...

Posted by headcharge on March 21, 2008 at 08:28 AM

Definitely not Avery v Clarkson. Helluva scrap. Barch maybe with the slight edge for being a little more active, but not enough for a unanimous decision. Barch on a split decision.

Posted by Screaming Buffalo on March 20, 2008 at 04:31 PM

Great fight as always with these two. Barch was more active and landed a great shot after the flurry of punches. Slight Edge to Barch

Posted by mike gradzewicz on March 20, 2008 at 07:55 AM


Posted by Blues 34 on March 20, 2008 at 05:20 PM

Another great fight between these two. Barch gets the edge here.

Posted by PA232 on March 21, 2008 at 01:49 AM

If only all fights were like this. By the slimest of margins, Barch wins with that one great shot to May's chin. A mortal would have dropped with that shot, but May stuck around to deliver some punishment himself.

Posted by gryphon7878 on March 20, 2008 at 09:05 AM

Awesome fight. Barch landed more heavy punches. I love how May has only 7 fights this year....4 with Barch!!!!!

Posted by novisorsallowed on March 20, 2008 at 05:45 PM

It's sad that more guys don't throw like this. Barch is finally figuring out how to dance.

Posted by phoch00 on March 20, 2008 at 02:12 PM

When I watched it live I called it a draw. Almost too close to call. Watching the replay - late in the fight Barch does land some nice shots. Slight edge to Barch.

Posted by staceyb on March 20, 2008 at 01:35 PM

Barch landed one right on the button two-thirds of the way in that gives him the win. Barch is really coming on as a fighter.

Posted by mnenforcer24 on March 21, 2008 at 01:54 AM

This was most definitely a draw. It is amazing that May actually decided to confront someone from the front instead of hitting them from behind.

Posted by Rynryn on March 20, 2008 at 10:42 AM

Barch landed more, but Mays looked stronger, and neither looked to have the edge in control. Drawwwwww. Good fight.

Posted by april81972 on March 20, 2008 at 09:15 AM

May would've won if he was in better shape. Look at how wide open Barch was after the first flurry of exchanges. He was WIDE open for a few straight lefts but May was too tired to do anything about it. Decent scrap. Draw all the way.

Posted by MakaveliTrained on March 20, 2008 at 10:49 AM

Good fight, draw

Posted by bloodchurn on March 21, 2008 at 05:35 AM

These two should have their own tv show

Posted by jcstokes on March 20, 2008 at 11:59 AM

Great stuff- these guys were tuckered, especially May. May's been doing this for so long. I don't like him, but he's managed to keep going. DRAW.

Posted by STL13 on March 20, 2008 at 06:41 PM


Posted by coroner78 on March 20, 2008 at 12:31 PM

These two always have great scraps. When do they meet again?

Posted by chelios247 on March 20, 2008 at 11:22 AM

great scrap

Posted by goon10 on March 21, 2008 at 01:48 PM

I still hold a grudge against May for his sucker punch in the playoffs against Minnesota last year, but damn it if I don't love a fight where you can finish an entire beer before it's over. Draw.

Posted by Zodijackyl on March 20, 2008 at 06:48 PM

Great fight and great hits from both sides, doesn't go much either way.

Posted by PICKLEHAMMER on March 20, 2008 at 09:07 AM

No clear winner. Great fight.

Posted by perezj on March 20, 2008 at 09:29 AM

Homer announcers, you got to love it. May landed the better punches. I score it a tie, very close to call.

Posted by boondockbruiser on March 22, 2008 at 04:47 AM

refs should have let them get their breath back and go some more

Posted by tuff duck 29 on March 21, 2008 at 09:34 PM

good fight i think may landed some better shots though go ducks

Posted by azjim on March 20, 2008 at 08:18 AM

May landed the better shots while they traded. A good fight.

Posted by dmk139 on March 25, 2008 at 07:22 PM

Great scrap! May gets the slight edge for better punches landed

Posted by muskokadangler on October 16, 2010 at 12:16 PM

What a BEAUTY!!!!!! May day....All the way!!!!

Posted by eadamson on March 20, 2008 at 06:38 PM

Looked like Barch got more shots in. May's were often deflected. Barch with the win.
