Good effort but no true winner.
Both landed some good shots. Could easily be a draw. Janssen didn't look any worse for wear in the penalty box,no bruises or red marks on his face. Barch was leaking from a cut that was reopened.
Even scrap, and both showed real good balance. No such thing as a short fight for Janssen...
Now this is the lead candidate for FOTW. When I saw that these 2 would be at it, I was figuring the worst for Barch but he hung in there and landed some shots of his own. Take points away from Cam for that duesche bouncing around at the beginning. Once they started going though, no hugging here. Nice raw in my book.
ditto behn wilson's take, particularly "jannsen channels barnaby" ditto samtheman's take
Even bout!!the fall from janssen was juss a loss of balance,but it made barch,s punch look good at that particular moment
The fight was pretty good. Barch may have landed more shots but was bloodied up. I will give it a draw..NO clear winner unless Barch is your favorite player..
Cam hit harder.
Janssen channels Barnaby, while Barch channels...well, let's be nice, and say... a fighter smarter than his normal self. As both abandon all signs of defence, and relentlessly, start swinging for the fences in an all out, evenly matched war. Huge props to two guys that I don't, usually, care much for as fighters. Draw out of respect for the Herculean efforts of both Spartans. Just for the record, and the sake of ''hater clarity''... IMO...the cut(s) seemed to be evened up by the knockdown.
Great fight ! I have to call this one a draw and great to see Barch actually hang in there after getting pounded most of the time this year . I guess Belak woke him up the other night .
Excellent tilt. Barch early, Janssen late.
back and forth tie
Draw all the way. props to both for F.O.T.Y. candidate
Holy hell... Watching playing that clip bruised my lcd monitor. That was amazing. How there were no broken hands or faces is beyond me.
FISTIC SET TO,REAL GOOD SCRAP,NOT QUITE YABO/MIRASTY GOOD,BUT NOT BAD FOR THE NHL
Gotta agree with the other guys here. Almost didn't click on this one, and...DAMN! Good bout. T-Rex Janssen has the heart and the schtick but no reach. He probably felt good about going with Barch, and SURPRISE! I thought it was a draw. I mean both guys landed and took almost the same. I think there is an anti-Janssen sentiment on the website. If Orr drew blood he would be the 99.7% winner (no, I got nothing against Orr. Relax). Just sayin' he did cut the guy. Oh, who cares anyway. That was a good one.
Great fight! Looks like a draw to me with a slight edge to Barch. It looked like they were talking in the beginning...maybe about giving the fans (or this site) a fight to remember. I've heard Barch in an interview with Brad May talking about giving encouragement to other fighters to make a good showing for fight of the year. Wow! This was definitely one to remember. Kudos to Janssen and Barch...Great job boys!
Great fight from two mediocre fighters ... gave it a draw and a 9. Lots of punching and swinging...
That fight makes up for every crappy hugfest, every lop-sided bout for the last 3 seasons - awesome. Draw.
I was lucky enough to see this one in person and told my buddy this would be a FOTY finalist...
Almost speechless, a shade less IMO than the Erskine/Boulton fight earlier in the year, but these guys both took shots and stood to them. A candidate for FOTY, hate both guys, but wow, props when they're due.
Good fight, my top pick.
two smaller guys that dont care how big you are,they will fight anyone.pretty good scrap.win lose or draw,when you drop the gloves with these two u better pack a lunch.
Great fight! Neither one seems to disappoint. I would give Barch the decision but if winning makes you look like that I'd rather lose. Draw!!!
Great toe to toe bout that is possible a FOTY candidate.
WOW Fight of the year candidate for sure i can it a draw
Both did supergreat job here, perfect bout in my book. NO WINNEr!!! Both landed many bombs.
couldn;t view this fight at work due to restricted access. afetr reading some of the comments, my anger grew and grew on the way home. all you 'experts' that have harshly criticized (sp???) both these guys over the years should go put you head in the sand and never make a comment here ever again. your license to convey utter ignorance should be suspended. better yet, go wax your dolphin in the bathroom ALONE. while mr janssen has had some interesting bouts, mr barch is known for epic battles with one mr may. what do you douche bags wanna see: a one punch affair or a struggle over who can outlast the other??? man, i feel sorry for your wives and or girl friends......come to think of it, it is likely 'your boy friends' look at the highest rated fights over the last 3 years and then comment here. otherwise, what you say has no more weight than the nonsense already offered........piss on the lot of you. let me explain something to you idiots: see that little number called voted rating??? there is a simply formula to keep in mind in assessing how the voters liked this fight: high number is good. low number bad. both these MEN have extremely high overall rated fights. regardless of your stupidity.
that was the definition of a great fight. it doesnt feel fair to give it anything but a Draw. definite FOTY nominee. On a side note, i wish someone would punch Steve Ott like that.
maybe the best fight of the year so far. boulton vs. erskine might be as good
Thank you. Best scrap I have seen in a while. Draw
one of the best of the year here! both guys wanted it....draw.
Great fight W Barch ... but can see a Draw
AMAZING! Draw, but I have a bias toward the boys in the double nickels..
Super great fight guys! They both gave it there all! I can't pick a winner here! They both deserve thumbs up here!
What a great scrap! They were back and forth! So awesome!!!
damn good fight
8.9 rating currently? get real. good scrap but about a 7.
Jassen was showboating again and got sat down.
Maybe i am missing something, but to me not too great a tilt
Someone please buy Janssen his straw that he will be eating through when he is 40. Yes he can take a punch not because he is tough because he is an idot. Look mama I can take a punch.
Just when I thought I was gonna tell Barch to stop fighting, he proves me wrong. Be careful what you wish for (Janssen), you just might get it. Good W for Barch. 7.5 tops.
Very good scrap...gotta love when two guys say "Defense? What the hell is defense?" Edge Barch for landing and throwing more quality shots.
Wild swings here not alot of solid connection. Slight edge to Barch despite a Cammer gouge early on. Had there been more solid landers this would have been the fight of the year for sure.
' At least, CJ did not wave the referees off(that's kind of hard when you are getting your butt handed to you). Win 13 '
win to Barch both were throwing Barch landed the better of the punched especially the one that put Janssen on his a$$. I am so sick of the way Janssen acts. Hacking up the sleeves bouncing around like and idiot, dancing, flapping his gums when fighting and chweing on his mouth piece or the famous I always wave off the refs and then take a big shot move. Man Jansen is so annoying and I hate him as a fighter. I give this a 7 and a spirited bout by both men.
Once again, Janssen's thick skull and rubber skin are his only endearing qualities. He can't fight, but because he's from the St. Loser area, the local fans cheer his wild flailing attempts at punches. Just proves that the 15% who have jobs in the STL area must not be eligible for optical insurance. Meanwhile, Barch repeatedly connects, and Dumb Stump Janssen keeps begging for more. If you're in a fight and you're going to call out the other guy, shouldn't you at least make a better attempt? As is the case in most of Barney Rubble's fights, the other guy - no matter who he is - wins the battle. Win to Barch.
Winner Barch! Good scrap but have to give this one to Barch.
Good scrap, but not quite a FOTY candidate. Barch got the better of Janssen this time, but an entertaining effort from both of them.
I don't know how this made the top it was more of a hug fest then fight. Good bout though and the only way Cam would have won that is if he knocked out Barch.
I find Janssen's act of talking/challenging/telling the linesmen to back off during fights is getting very old. Old like premium cheddar, none of that mild sh*t. Cracker Barrel, Black Diamond...n'aw mean?
Great fight ,,slight edge to Barch .
Very good tilt. Barch early and middle and Cam tries to come back but they were out of gas. Barch and an 8
That was worth the price of admission. CJ did very well against John Scott and it seemed to carry over into this one. Suprisingly, KB didn't lead with his chin again and get tagged. All in all an 8, with KB a 10-9.5 winner.
barch with the win janssen you suck go hawks lol
Janssen should shut his mouth and concentrate on fighting! Win Barch!
Great fight. win Barch.
Wow. Janssen got SMOKED by Barch..Cam landed maybe ONE solid punch..Domination victory for sad sack Barch..
Krys Barch making good on his New Year's resolution "I will not get my ass kicked in 2011." That was a terrific bout.
Gotta hand it to Janssen - he is a tough little bugger but I think Barch got the most and the last one in!
What's up with all of Janssen's punk moves during a fight? He dances like a little girl before the fight then he eggs all his opponents on during the fight and then they gladly proceed to punch his face in. Janssen is a goofball. I love watching him get his faced caved in night in night out.
Nice go, guys. I can do without Janssen's theatrics. This is hockey, not the NBA or NFL. Slight edge to Barch.
Great Scrap! Edge to Barch, better shots landed. Janssen ate a lot of fist this week!
Wow....can't stand either of these fighters, but you have to respect these undersized fellas standing back and throwing them hard...very back and forth tilly, but have to give the edge to barch with the hard lefts, despite the cut on the eye...
Even though Barch got cut he seemed to land more quality shots.
great bout-good old fashion hockey !!!
Does Janssen usually chirp like that when he's fighting? Great fight, slight edge to Barch. I can see someone KOing Janssen if he keeps talking instead of fighting, although have to give credit where it's due. Haven't seen anyone take more punishment than Janssen in a fight this year. Good stamina too
The fight was king of close, both show great show, but Barch had several really great hits and for him the best fight this seasson, for now. And look on Janssen, he sometimes looks like he is still little drunk from 31st December, because that moves what he doing:D(drunk Pirate)....Win and Thumbs UP for Barch
Good fight! Both guys throwing from their heels. First on one side, then switching to the other. Win to Barch for more effective punches. Barch's cut was just opening up stitches from a prior bout.
Barch was bloodied, but still won the fight. The more I see of Janssen the more I like him, unfortunately he loses more than he wins, he can certainly take a punch though.
Fight of the year in January the 2nd? Why not? Great challenge for other fighters to be better during the rest of the year.
Fistic Festoon? What the hell? What a bout, I love Cam Jansen, he is so animated and goes forever in these bouts, usually a win by attrition but not today, Barch really tagged him good several times and swung him in to some hard punches several times, a great bout! One of the best so far this year..
good tilt barch landed more, barch the win
great fight....win barch as he threw and landed much more than janssen
WOW! That is an old school rock'em sock'em type of bout there boys! I gotta give Barch the win here because of the apparent knockdown at the end. Don't really like the showboating from Janssen during the fight, but I am an old school kinda guy anyway. Best fight I have seen in some time!
Would have been a draw except for the knockdown by Barch on the last punch. W in a doozy for Barch and I still hate Janssen.
WOW.....i mean WOW full props to both men and i assume this could be a top 5 FOTY result when the dust settles thank you Cam and Krys
Good classic swings to finish. Wish more guys aired it out like that.
Proof that Janssen can be entertaining when he goes toe to toe
You know what, Barch actually beat Cam in this one. Bottome line this is a W albeit a close one for Barch.
Barch finally fights someone his own size and takes the narrow win. budwizeerr: I did watch in slo-mo and about 5 punches landed. (4) from Barch and (1) from Cam - put down the beer it is clouding your vision. Not sure how Barch's stiches opened but it was not from a punch. Side note: 4-0 in the season series, Stars own the Blues!
That was incredible! These guys both landed big shots and kept going. I gave this a 9 for quality, duration and effort. Barch wins a rare one against a serious fit and tough as shoe leather Janssen. As a side note - Janssen is not having a great year. He's been pounded by Scott twice, BizNasty and others. I will give him this though - his fights are always entertaining and score high.
Words I never thought I would type WIN Barch. Good tilt. Janssen got "cocky" and got socked.
Great way to start 2011. Both landed some huge bombs. Both switched up hands effectively. Giving edge to Barch. Although he got cut, he landed the last heavy shot.
Amazing fight...one to remember ! Talk about going toe to toe, punch per punch, right per right, left per left, all offence, no defence, last one standing... wins, Giving edge to Barch and scoring it a 9 ! Thank-you boys !
Barch landed more effectively and with the take down at the end. Janssen seemed tired though.
OMG, what was that. I got to give the slight edge to Barch and give it a nine. I am going to have to take back everything bad I have said about him this season. That was unbelievable. sore hands and sore faces, lots of ice needed for those two boys tonight. One of the top fights of the year for sure, never thought I would see the day Barch was in one of those. I apolgise Mr. Barch for all my bad comments, you are a true warrior!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow, what a tilt. Barch with the win, but no one in the league takes a punch better than Janssen. Barch rocked him with some bombs but Janssen didn't even flinch. Between this fight and his bouts with Scott, Janssen leads the league in eating bombs.
The cut could be the result of a head butt at 1:13. Great fight. Barch impressed the most.
Yeah, I agree this was a great one with an Edge to Barch. He got a bloody eye, but landed more hits, including the last one that iced Cam. I'm proud to see Krys is no longer heavyweight fodder.
Too bad that blockhead Janssen talks better than he fights. Barch with the KNOCKOUT win.
Barch got cut, but he landed some really solid blows. He wins in a close one.
Barch with a narrow victory here. Janssen didn't seem to connect with much. Barch had more accuracy. Then Barch with the take down.
Nice to see Barch smash the crap out of Janssen. The cut on the eye of Barch was when the helmet reopened the previous cut he had there. Great fight and a knockdown by Barch. Janssen has done allot of talk lately from his ugly mug and not much in the results department. Barch with the win.
Maybe fight of the year.Late in the fight, I thought that Janssen threw a left and Barch a right, and they met fist to fist. The punch landed on Janssen's jaw, however! Barch with the flurry at the end to take it.
A great scrap. Have to give the edge to Barch. He handled himself well against one of he best and the last two shots gave him the win.
wow, slight edge to Barch, not sure how Cam's face wasnt disfigured...both true warriors and definitely a nomination for fight of the year.
slight edge to barch for landing the better shots. amazing fight. easily fight of the year canidate.
great battle of light heavies this is a draw both threw some great bombs gotta give slight edge to barch
...I give it to Barch for the strong ending, but this is not as important feature, the first thing - nice bout, nice showing from both of them.
gave barch the edge in this great fight.
Best scrap of the year for Barch! Doesnt matter if he wins or loses, Krys Barch will fight anyone.
FUUUUCKING AMAZING! Barch wins!
What a fight! Have to give Barch the slight win though. Rate: 9
What a great fight. I cant rag on cam again after this
Awesome fight, slight edge to Barch.
Barch got so many more good shots but the amount of cocaine Janssen does clearly keeps him in it.
Barch got the better shots and the last one knocked janssen down. Win for barch but a good bout
Wow tough fight to call. I gotta give it to Janssen cause Barch got cut. Great fight though.
alot of big swings!
Cam won...Oilers could use him....
I hate Janssen but in my opinion janssen clearly gets the edge in this one. I don't know what the rest of you were watching
Barch is busted up like a buffalo fan at the BLUE OYSTER BAR!!!! AHAhAHAhahahAHah
janssen better punches, announcer must have been watching different fight. barch's face tells story.
Saw this one live, and I think Janssen landed more solid, face breaking punches! I give him the win, even though they were both good.
This was a fun fight to watch and I give the edge to Janssen. Janssen threw the bigger punches and was switching hands. IF you give anything to Barch its for the take down at the end of the fight, when Janssen was off balance from one of the homerun punches he was throwing. I just dont see how people gave such a lopsided win to Barch. His punches didnt land at the rate of Janssen and his eye was dotted up at the end of the fight. To prove my point look at the slow motion replay at the end of the fight. Barch throws three jabs that hit air; it was like he was shadow boxing.
Wasn't even close say four rows off the ice and janssen dominated
How can anyone say Barch won? I know blood doesnt win a fight but Janssen landed bombs. and Janssen was not fazed by Barch's blows at all. I also think Janssen is the most entertaining fighter in the bigs. Janssen is BEAST
All out battle between 2 even scrappers. Give this tilt to Jansen as both guys took some shots, but Barch's face showed more damage.
great fight from both guys. loos like some bad blood there
Barch landed more shots, Janssen came on strong in the end and landed the shots that really counted.
Janssen did not go down at the end from a punch, he lost his balance(which is rare). I give it to Barch for swinging hard the whole time(thanking his lucky stars he's not having to pari up to King when he comes to STL). Janssen got Barch to bleed. Homer Dallas announcers.
god doesnt anyone have DVR rewind and watch in slow motion the knockdown in the end was not from a punch landing at all they both fell from being off balance, and did anyone see Barchs face he got hammered ,now he landed some in return but watch is in slow mo and you will see Jansen clearly , and I mean cleary won the fight, For Barch to have such a ONE SIDED vote is clearly because you guys dont like CAM. Jansen was the winner in this fight and if you watch it frame by frame you would see that. WINNER JANSEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As a lifelong Blues fan, I love this. Cam might not win very often, but his fights are as entertaining as they come. We were spoiled with Twister, Chaser & King for years and now Janssen is carrying on the torch just fine. I actually gave this fight to Cam, great even brawl but where I come from.....................if you're leakin', you lost.
what a fight. i thought janssen's last 2 shots were the best of the fight.
Jammer with the win
Nice fight, toe to toe.
Great fight -- Janssen landed the better blows but Barch was game throughout.
Cam is a BEAST!! For all of you morons who chose Barch, clearly watch at 1:29 into the video Cam was throwing left handed bombs that buckled Barch and lost his footing. Clear winner: JANSSEN!
for all of u that voted for barch idk what u were watchin or if ur just blind cuz i was there in person n barch got his ass dominated by janssen it was clearly a one sided fight n u would have to be retarded or blind no to see that. JANSSEN WINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great fight from both fighters. It was extremely close but I'd give the edge to Janssen. They both landed many haymakers but I thought Janssen had the bigger shots overall.
Janssen with the w landing more and better shots not to mention the good old hit me i dare you. barch pussy ed out and got cut open by cam janssen easy win goes to cam all who voted for barch is homers and barches last blow knocked janssen down LOL dont make me laugh janssens last blow but barch on his but.these announcers are homers also showing its not how you start its how you finish.
I was excited to watch this when I saw a rating of 9 but ended up being disappointed. Definitely a good fight but not FOTY candidate in my opinion. Some big punches thrown but I didn't see a good % landed. Calling it a draw and a solid 7.
Wow. Rock'em-Sock'em Robots. Janssen's got a granite chin. Barch had him locked out in the early rounds, but Janssen came back and administered decent face damage. Both fighters ate their share of bombs.
Hahaha!! All of a sudden you hear some idiot scream ... "IT'S ROCKEM SOCKEM ROBOTS!!!" Idiot! Draw... 8 very close.
great fight. both guys gave it all they had . thank you for the display gotta go with a draw. good effort by both
Barch started off with some good punches and was keeping Janssen out of reach, but Janssen got a different hopld and came back with some big haymakers. Barch pulled down Janssen to end it. More punches to Barch, but more damage to Janssen. Draw and a 9.
That was a good one. I gave it a draw. Both guys landed some big shots in this fight. Janssen proved that he can multi-task. He can talk and fight at the same time. This may have been the best Barch vs. Janssen fight they've had out of the 7 times they've fought each other.
We need more fights like this!
Draw two warriors just throwing, great fight.
Holy Sh*t! Who though the FOTY so far would come from Krys Barch and Cam Janssen?... Though Barch probably landed more and better shots I gave it a draw outta both guys' efforts
only five years ago e got treated to amazing fights like this...
great fight. really. great. fight.
Barch shut assclowns mouth up. Janssen should be a Leaf he is such a goof
as entertaining as janssen is i will never tire of watching him get punched in the face.
Wow. Second best fight of the year so far (behind Erskine vs Boulton.) Barch with the win in a close one.
JANSSENS IS A JOKE. ALWAYS GOOD TO SEE HIM GET SMOKED.
Edge to Barch but I would not have thought that prior to seeing the fight.
Shut up and fight, Punching Bag. Razor calling it Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots! Clearly Barch for having the inside punching lane and landing.
WOW Have to give a surprising edge to Krys Barch in this absolute doozy.
Great brawl between these two, give the edge to Barch, but great effort from both guys.
Did we WIN in that one or what????? They wanted to dance and .......THEY DID!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Decision goes to Barch and THE WIN goes to US!!!!!! Nuff Said.........The talking was done on the ice!!!!! KUDO'S
Awesome fight, always love Cam going at it, but he lost this one.
Wow!!! F.O.Y. candidate for sure.
Solid win by Barch albeit his cut from a loss earlier did open back up. Janssen was doing more talking then fighting, and getting punched in the mouth a lot for it!
Very good fight from both players. Very fun to watch. Edge to Barch
Good fight but it looked to me, much to my chagrin, that Janssen landed more punches and did more damage. Takedowns don't count for much since they indicate nothing more than that a fighter is tired of fighting and so hauls the other guy down.
Janssen is a badass. Win Cam! Great Bout
solid scrap. Barch reminds me of some old time guys. where if you fight him once you know hes gunna want another bout haha. and edge to barch on this one
did everyone watch the same fight I did? Win Cam, close and exciting but he pulled it out.
The blood draw gets the win for Janssen - Strategic slugfest...punches thrown with thought behind them - Top Ten of the Year
i pick janssen just b/c tht was his best showing ALL year. great great fight
both landed some great shots. gotta love it when those 2 go at it. Giving it to Cammer seeing as he once again sent Barch to get stitched up. When those guys go at it, it's usually tight and Barch ends up bleeding.
Very good fight. Slight edge Janssen.
Awesome, give Janssen the edge cause I liked the lefty windmill haymakers
