Rick Rypien Needs No Slingshot
Rick Rypien had to reach up - way up - when he took on Hal Gill last night. With an eight-inch difference in height it’d probably be expected for Rypien to just want to survive, but he was on the offensive for a good portion of the fight. Rypien handled himself more than well, landing a few good shots with a little bit of bounce and magic.
Rypien’s a fan favorite in Vancouver who’s missed some time over the past few years. At just 25-years old, he’s already playing to revive his career, one that still has potential. He had a solid preseason, but fighting hasn’t ever really been an issue for the middleweight.
One punch away from Pierre Bouchard vs Stan Jonathan, Rypien surely won over anyone left in Vancouver who wasn’t rooting for him already.
