Right off of the faceoff the two drop the gloves and tie up. McSorley throws four early rights while Simpson puts a hand in McSorley's face and throws two of his own. The two exchange quick rights while Simpson gets McSorley's jersey up and over his head. Simpson throw a mix of rights and uppercuts while McSorley is throwing blind, wild punches. McSorley gets in a right and Simpson responds with five rights, knocking McSorley's helmet off. McSorley throws two body shots just before falling down to his knees only to get right back up. The two then go back and forth with rights until Simpson rips McSorley's jersey off. They then exchange bombs, each player switching between hands and landing almost all of their punches. The two continue to go back and forth with numerous punches until they tire out and the linesmen move in. They are then escorted to the wrong penalty boxes and sent out to switch. McSorley skates over to a crowd of Blackhawks and gets shoved by Chelios. McSorley pops Chelios with a short right and the linesmen have to skate over and re-escort McSorley to the box and then the hallway. Other Penalties: McSorley received a game misconduct; Jim Cummins a misconduct.
geez...2 tough guys going long, and going hard!!! A draw, no doubt...
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.
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.
wow Simpson gave mcsorley an ass whopping there he hit him in the head at least 30 times but Mcsorley was so juiced up he didn't go down.great fight
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.
Faces of War
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 !
wow best fight i ever saw to of the old school warrior breed gotta love those older time fights
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.
Wow wgat a great fight! Btw simpson plays in Russian league and i've seen him, he's pretty tough!
classic marty, but simpson edged him out in this one. solid 9
Unbelievable fight. Vintage Marty McSorley battle. Long heavyweight fight
what sick fn wind on these guys..awesome fight..win Bart Simpson
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 :)
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!
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!
