I now consider Gillies an official heavyweight enforcer..and a good fight to analyse him a little. A natural south paw. He tried to go with the right a few times but noticably uncomfortable on that side. Strong as a bull but lacks the flexibility and reach to land the knock-out bomb. Has to fight in close and tight to be effective. How do I know all this ? I slept at a Best Western last night .lol
Leblond should know that there is going to be a fight, but the linesmen should as well and clear out. At one point, a linesmen has a hand on the back of Ldblond's helmet while Gillies is throwing. That should never be. Even though Gillies got off to a good start, I think Leblond landed the better shots and edged him in the end.
yeah i dunno, gillies with the pretty lame start to the fight, but still, another very entertaining fight, one of many tonight. calling it a draw, for how many shots gillies threw while leblond's gloves were still on, the guy sure came back with an awful lot of his own, including at least a half dozen uppercuts. great job fellers!
