WOOOW Joey in his prime and Linker. By those standards, most of today's fighters are a bunch of sissies.

Kocur cuts Gaetz landing hard shots straight and uppercut

OUCH! Joey gave Linky a lesson, fair play to Link for staying on his feet, those were nasty shots he took. WOWZER.

this was when kocur started putting on weight for a little extra leverage against the jumbo fighters and it showed here. gaetz was strong as an ox but kocur toes in nicely and blasts him about seven times.

Good fight. Edge Kocur.

Whoever voted for Gaetz should be thrown off this site

Clear win for #26, but i gotta give Link some credit here. i can' t believe he didnt go down after some of those bombs he took. I have never cared for Kocur to much, but he was one of the best..... If not the best!!!!!

Footages like this makes me miss the good ole' days before Bettman fcuked it all up. I can't believe I am saying this, but the NhL needs to bringback that Ziegler guy.

It wasn't domination from Kocur but surely a CLEAR control. He landed clearly more punches,and always hard. Kudos to Gaetz as he stood there plus lands a few nasty ones for the reply. No big shame.

Kocur in his absolute prime putting on a clinic here...give the "missing Link" credit because Joey was pounding away with that terrifying right hand and Gaetz skated away.

Posted by BigPoppa4426 on January 13, 2009 at 01:56 PM

I've seen fights where Kocur cracked the other dudes helmet. What the hell is Gaetz thinking!

Posted by slysi on September 05, 2016 at 05:36 PM

CLOSE TO A kayo but Gaetz was still standing though bloodied ! Kocur has a head like TY DOMI ....it must be like punching a concrete block !

Posted by jpjpjkjk on July 07, 2017 at 02:18 AM

Ouch. Anyone who leaves Joey off best of all time list is crazy. Almost all who fight him are skating backward. Nuff said. And oh yeah Probert wanted no part of 3rd fight.

Kocur kicked his ass. Props to Gaetz for eating all those bombs and staying on his feet. Hell of a chin on that guy.

Posted by slshbleed on July 25, 2007 at 07:16 PM

The missing Link must have had a steel reinforced concrete skull because not only did he fall out of a speeding car and live, he took a bunch of shots from donkey punch and was still standing. Amazing !

joey may not be very big but he was one badass in his playing days had one of the wickedest uppercuts

Posted by Durxxx on April 10, 2011 at 09:13 PM

Great bout.

Posted by spiderlakeDave on September 01, 2016 at 03:19 PM

What a great fighter Kocur was. Have to give Gaetz some credit for absorbing that beatdown.

Posted by PigIron on March 28, 2010 at 12:26 AM

Easy W for Kocur! Looked like one tough dude.

Posted by travist on March 26, 2013 at 05:05 PM

kocur was a bad dude. gaetz, a scary as he is, had to be told by wilkinson to go to the box...

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on April 19, 2010 at 10:24 PM

Link got beat like a drum by one of the hardest punchers the game's ever seen and threw back the whole time. Give the man credit. He definitely has a set of stones.

Posted by trpaulson on July 28, 2007 at 05:25 PM

Kocur wins. He landed the big ones and drew the blood.
