Say what you want about Domi but he was a hard guy to fight. He had a killer round-house left and was all over the place during a fight. But most importantly Domi could take a punch. In fact, he took a lot of them and felt them but never let them slow him down and never let the apposition know they scored.
Carkner is not a smart fighter and he can't take a punch .... end of story. He seems to be a glass jaw when some one connects and he's not going to win many fights like that. I don't know what the answer is for a guy like him. He has size and strength but can't fight. He's more of a Hal Gill than a heavyweight fighter. If I were him, I'd work on my game (especially skating) and leave the fighting for those who can. Neil would have done ten times better against Boulton.
i have advice for ANYONE who fights in the nhl whose named isnt Donald Brashear. your left hand will never, ever beat Boultans haymaker right. poor choice to fight with his wrong hand in this fight by carkner. easy win for boultan
