Draw.

Posted by pmarz1 on November 18, 2008 at 08:28 AM

Slaps to the back of your opponents shoulder with what looks like the sleeve of his jersey dont qualify as punches landed. When I watched this last night I knew many here would get this one wrong. Nice not to have to listen to Jack Edwards hysterics though.

Posted by gdameo on November 18, 2008 at 11:34 AM

how the hell can you vote for Mayers? Yes he might throw a few of punches while Thornton wasn't able to let his arm go. Mayers' punches are NOTHING, they didn't even landed at all but Thornton's shoulder. This is DRAW. People who vote for Mayers are stupid.

Posted by goods5119 on November 18, 2008 at 09:33 AM

Here's how Edwards would have called it.. Thornton and Mayers exchanging pleasantries before the draw...and here we go...Thornton and Mayers, a couple of heavyweights...Thornton over and under, over and under, under and over! Thornton is making Mayers punch himself out...and DOWN GOES MAYERS!!!!! Brickley 'I don't think Thornton even through a punch there, Jack.' Think I got it about right? (I'm a B's fan, and I HATE Jack Edwards, he's an embarrassment to an old-school hockey town like Boston)

thats a draw, where was the fight?

Posted by rocky 1 on October 17, 2009 at 11:23 PM

Mayers never gave Thornton a chance to get going takling him beforeThornton got his gloves off.

Posted by NGBulldogs on November 18, 2008 at 07:01 AM

draw

Posted by DetroitIan on November 18, 2008 at 12:14 AM

Edge to Mayers.

Posted by millwright1966 on November 18, 2008 at 05:20 AM

draw..though Mayers did get a shot or 2 in..but definatly a draw

Posted by tails824 on November 19, 2008 at 09:08 AM

Mayers took him down too early to get the win in my opinion...wasnt a ko by any means..not even a tko

Posted by siouxfan1 on November 19, 2008 at 12:35 AM

Yes Mayers threw more punches but I don't think any landed! It has to be scored a draw!!

Posted by JCeltic on November 18, 2008 at 10:27 AM

Draw.. I GUESS I wouldn't argue with someone saying edge to Mayers...if you count punching your opponent in the upper back?? I dont even really think this should of been posted on the site...its hardly a fight. Nothing to see here overall.

Posted by Bostonbrb on November 18, 2008 at 04:56 PM

Mayers is a crappy fighter and Thornton got his hand stuck, terrible fight all around.

Posted by IrishBrawler on November 18, 2008 at 12:23 AM

I loved the false start by Mayers at the face off. Dropping his gloves and sticks before the puck dropped. Technically a penalty but refs let it go. Classic stuff.

Posted by Wensinkfan on November 18, 2008 at 03:54 PM

This was amusing to see I have to admit. False starts on a face off and a fight at the same time lol. Then to laugh harder they still went! I'm a B's fan but Thornton has had a rough time concerning his fighting this season. He's said no to countless players and its starting to show even though he went this time on a challenge. I hope he gets back to form. And by the way-No Jack Edwards!!! Man what a relief. I hope people can see that Brickely isn't so bad. Win goes to Mayers hands down in a crap scrap.

Posted by blues10 on November 18, 2008 at 03:01 PM

Mayars beat up Thortons shoulder pads.

Posted by bruins34 on November 18, 2008 at 04:36 PM

What the hell? I don't even want to rate this a fight. Thornton never got going, so you have to give it to Mayers. I know 22 is no knock-out artist, but there is no excuse for not being ready. Didn't Jamal's false start before the whistle give an indication of intent? Sigh, there'll be a rematch. Would have loved to hear Jack Edwards call this one! lol

Posted by willismc on November 18, 2008 at 08:55 AM

The false start from Mayers was halarious. "oops, sorry guys, my stick fell out of my hands" You could tell they were both dissapointed the linesmen jumped in so soon, never really got going.

Posted by billy jack on November 18, 2008 at 03:10 PM

this wasnt a fight,but both are tough customers,but no fight.

Posted by wildfan4eva on November 17, 2008 at 11:35 PM

Not a good fight...but excuses just don't cut it when it comes to fights. Thornton should have prepped better, even though he MAY have won 9 out of 10 times, he lost in this won. Maybe he should think about how to take his gloves off and how not to get his hand stuck before his next fight...good luck on that Shawn.

Posted by SirYohans on November 18, 2008 at 05:57 PM

Edge Mayers for trying, I guess.

Posted by blackgoldfan on November 26, 2008 at 09:04 PM

ha ha! mayers earns a "W". kind of an upset.

Posted by Leafs2006 on November 19, 2008 at 10:54 PM

excuses excuses bruins_rule....Thornton lost the fight, live with it! No harm done, slight edge to Mayers

Posted by Behn Wilson on November 19, 2008 at 12:25 AM

What was with the little ''hoppy the rabbitt'' start by Thornton...a little less than manacing, to say the least.

Posted by Juha82 on November 18, 2008 at 04:22 AM

Mayers was slightly better here. Lansing 2 shots.

Posted by BAAAAANNERMAAAN on November 18, 2008 at 10:35 AM

an "enforcer" who can't beat Mayers............cmon

Posted by bruins rule on November 17, 2008 at 10:12 PM

9 times out of 10 thornton would win this fight but tonight he got his hand stuck in his jersey.

Posted by Bruins29 on November 18, 2008 at 05:53 PM

Edge to Mayers in a disappointing fight.

Posted by Pittsburgh Dan on November 18, 2008 at 11:12 PM

Mayers

Posted by PastorJ on November 18, 2008 at 10:53 AM

Jesus, how does Thornton not see this coming? DUH! Mayers just takes it to him and gets the clear win. Bruins homers, wake up and shut up. Your boy got beat.

Posted by staceyb on November 18, 2008 at 05:40 AM

Mayers is an underrated tough dude. Let them go again and Thornton would give a better effort than in this scrap.

Posted by brymaster1 on November 17, 2008 at 11:59 PM

Thornton didnt even throw a punch

Posted by nighthawk walt on November 18, 2008 at 08:07 PM

mayers gets the win,even though thornton jumped him.

Posted by Crooked on November 17, 2008 at 10:57 PM

they should rematch.

Posted by tstack on November 18, 2008 at 12:23 PM

Kinda of a weird setup with the false start. Thornton knew it was coming and still got nothing off. Mayers didn't land hardly anything but at least he made the effort. Mayers with the W.

Posted by The DZA on November 17, 2008 at 11:41 PM

Mayers beats Thornton in a quick one?!? That would NEVER happen twice

Posted by huddles on November 18, 2008 at 08:58 AM

barnibizer are you blind, mayers through 4 shots thornton ZERO. you obviously are a mathew barnaby punching bag voter

Posted by Buckster on November 18, 2008 at 11:02 AM

First punch landed on the jaw, edge Mayers who is far from the worst fighter in the league as some idiot previously mentioned. When he drops them he throws punches and I am a bruins fan so suck it up and vote according to what you see

Posted by tattooedkingpin on November 18, 2008 at 10:29 AM

hahaha. good start to that fight. Mayers gets the easy Win.

Posted by BsFAn4LIF on November 18, 2008 at 05:59 PM

Thornton definitley got his hand caught when getting the elbow pad off, that helped Mayers a lot.

Posted by GetUrWigSplit13 on November 17, 2008 at 11:14 PM

what a shame....if thornton didnt get his hand caught he woulda beat the piss out of mayers...o well what r u gonna do thats just how it goes sometimes. win for mayers

Posted by Toyb on November 18, 2008 at 02:44 PM

Not a great fight but i think Mayers was the winner because Thornton simply didn't do anything.

Posted by mcb789 on November 23, 2008 at 10:25 PM

another thornton lost. has thornton ever won a fight?

Posted by tylerfennell on November 27, 2008 at 02:04 AM

Did Thornton even get a shot in?

Posted by Brett24 on November 22, 2008 at 09:34 PM

mayers won this

Posted by chad420 on November 20, 2008 at 04:31 PM

that fight did suck...JM didnt land shat...cmon, how can all u guys call that a win...reverse homerism?

Posted by barnibizer on November 18, 2008 at 05:39 AM

This is the worst fight of the season. Why are people voting for Mayers win?? Not 1 punch(if u can call them that) landed. This is a draw. Mayers is perhaps the worst fighter in the league and he showed it here.

Posted by philabronc on November 18, 2008 at 09:04 PM

Talk about a false start. Like the announcer said, you knew what was coming after that. Draw.

Posted by Leafs24 on January 13, 2009 at 12:54 PM

draw mayers didnt land to many

Posted by beantown22 on July 11, 2009 at 04:54 PM

Thornton's elbow pad got stuck and he spent the whole fight trying to wiggle it off. I'm a huge B fan, but win goes to Mayers.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on March 03, 2015 at 11:46 PM

Mayers was the only one to land any punches.

Posted by CocoQuaker7 on November 18, 2008 at 12:05 PM

Thornton sucks

Posted by CFG1787 on November 17, 2008 at 11:51 PM

Mayers is a gamer, thoguh Thornton getting his hand caught definitely helped

Posted by Dijo on November 18, 2008 at 10:31 PM

Mayers won this fight. Thornton did nothing in this fight and he actually threw his gloves off first and grabbed Mayers in the 2nd attempt at the fight. Thornton didn't even throw a punch. Mayers didn't do any real damage but he won this quick lousy fight. Mayers is actually a lot better than people think. He's not a great fighter but he's a pretty smart fighter.

Posted by jdhoff20 on November 18, 2008 at 11:07 PM

it was a good fight, but mayer had more soild punches connect
