Nice equal fight, but in my opinion Simpson was better.

McSorley is such a pussy, always losing his jersey to get advantage on his opponent. He never fought fair.

good scrap

Marty was a freak of nature. The guy just would not give up. Tons of stamina, but Reid Simpson was in the driver's seat on this one. Marty was pretty much just throwing wildly while Simpson was controlling him and popping his face with strong, short rights. Love the interaction with Chelios at the end. Somebody said something funny because you can see Chelly try to hide his laughter behind his glove.

Pretty good scrap. McSorley an all-time favorite, and Simpson was always underrated.

Pretty good tilt. Simpson landed more good shots, but otherwise, both threw pretty well and often.

What a fight. I love McSorley's shoulder pads (if you can call 'em that). Why even bother wearing them. Simpson gets an obvious left that seems to shake Marty. I ran into Reid Simpson at a restaurant a few weeks after this fight. I was suprised that he wasn't as big as he looks...and he doesn't look that big to begin with.

great show of fitness by both guys ! I played drop in with SIMPSON a couple of times .....you would never think he had a nasty side at all !

Now That Right There Was A Battle Great Fight. Have To Give That One 2 Simpson Though.

Fantastic fight. Reid takes the clear win on points but you gotta love Marty's stamina. He took at least 10 hard shots and was still swinging at the end but so was Reid.

A great maraton battle. Simpson landed bit better. They had an emotion and sense in this one. Simpson controlled the bout. A good left and then immediately a good right by Simpson. R.Simpson narrow win( his best season)

Lol the little bitch slap to chelios at the end. Simpson, Cummins ah when the hawks were a tuff team, now look at them, a bunch of euro girls.

Posted by RolePlaya on March 06, 2007 at 06:09 AM

Posted by muskokadangler on September 11, 2010 at 09:20 PM

WOW!!!! YEE HAA...That's a fight!!! I gave it a 10....Maybe cause its summer and I haven't been watchin but shit that was sweet!!! Simpson all the way but McSorley's got nothin to be ashamed of I bet he'll be a little McSorley later Lol :)

Posted by sjeffh on March 26, 2014 at 01:21 AM

I stuck with the 10 even though the win was clearly Simpson. There were a LOT of serious punches connecting thruout the fight for both fighters. And the stamina, WOW!

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on February 20, 2015 at 11:21 PM

This has to be one of my favorite fights ever. It was probably McSorleys best fight even though he lost. Toe to toe, no clutching and grabbing here. Both guys left the ice leaking blood, but Reid Simpson had the absolute best fight of his career. Those were the days!
