Chico Resch labeled both combatants as "light-heavyweights" which is true for Asham but P-L L-L is up there in the heavyweight bracket--look at who he fights. And it is a glaring reason why the Flyers need to sign Derek Boogaard as a UFA in the off-season. They really don't have anyone except Cote to match up in the heavyweight division and he's a punching bag.
Asham didn't seem to have his A game...but still good enough for a draw.
PLLL throws while Asham was down...I know for a fact that had the roles been reversed , that the classy Asham would not have done the same.
A good match. I think Chico was on target... PL3 may be a little bigger than Asham and may fight some more heavyweights, but he only wins against inconsistent ones. They are both light-heavies who fight and usually lose to legitmate contenders.
Asham's offensive spark through most of this fight offsets his frequent ducking and his eventually being pulled down to make this a draw.
I'm calling it a draw because it was even up until the point when Asham went down and Leblond landed a few solid punches, which lacked class.
It looked a little like the boxing match on Saturday night that ended when the one boxer (Abraham?) clocked the other guy when he slipped to one knee.
