Other Penalties: Eager received a misconduct.
That was a sleeper
Fight sucked. I wouldnt give the win to either one or even give this fight a draw. Nothing happened.
The only thing missing was the music...
nothing serious happened... little bit of dance..
Not much of a fight. Eager could become a Avery-Tucker type player but he is not a true enforcer.
Both these guys like to pick their spots. Should have been a good match. Yawn.
lousy fight, rupp wanted no parts of eager. rupp danced through the whole fight.
Not a good fight at all, after a couple views of this I decided to go with Eager because of the solid upper cut he gave Rupp, Rupp didn't seem to want to do anything after that so obviously it stunned him. I don't really count takedowns for anything cause it's not that hard for a 230 pound guy to toss someone 15 pounds lighter.
ben eager 55 clearly won this fight, rupp really did not even get a shot in even thow rupp fell on eager. i dont believe in who fell on who it's who got most punches in.
decision to eager hes the only one that landed anything decent and rupp wanted to hug and wrestle.
Looks like Eager landed his second uppercut attempt then some body shots, Rupp didn't do anything except knock him over at the end of the fight. Winner is Eager.
Ben Eager got the stronger of the shots in with some strong uppercuts. As for the takedown by Rupp, he was just trying to make up for the fact that he wouldn't expose himself to actually throw any punches bc he did't want to get hit. The takedown is a very cheap strategy to woo the crowd, just get in there and toss your fists. This fight was too boring, if you're gonna drop the gloves, you have to be willing to take a few shots. These guys just wrestled around and would not throw with both hands, Rupp just kind of distanced himself as far as he could from Eager, they both just have to get in there and let fly, I don't want to see a damn waltz, and I know nobody else here does.
stanggt3 you are full of shit. Your post is the biggest waste ever. Rupp bailed on the fight, eager was actually trying to FIGHT and landed an uppercut....win eager (oh look the majority agrees)
average fight. rupp was dazed by eager's uppercut and just tried to tackle him. win for eager.
EAGER WINS...live at the game you could see rupp was stunned by an early uppercut by eager...i can't wait to see the bashing for him taking on a non-h/w like rupp
At least my boys are fighting. It's been a bad year. Go Flyers in 07-08
Was an energy, but Eager's attempts weren't so greats. Rupp was unwilling. Eager wanted more. Rupp tied up him well. Eager landed a few. B.eager narrow win.
clear win eager. i dont even know how you could vote for rupp?? eager threw all of the punches and once he stunned rupp with an uppercut, rupp just held on.
Eager won this fight with one uppercut stunning Rupp. Rupp spent the rest of the fight with his head turned away, just holding on. Eager threw alot of body shots when that's all Rupp would offer him. Rupp took Eager down at the end but not with a punch.
Eager landed a couple good ones. Rupp didn't land shit. Rupp goes down on top of Eager.
Devs fan here ... even tho he's a big guy, Rupp's not a fighter, let alone someone who takes on another team's designated tough guy (Devs don't really have a heavyweight. I give him credit for taking on the big guys, but Janssen's more of a middleweight, no matter who he takes on.) Not a great fight, but clear win for Eager. Clearly Eager's a more accomplished pugilist.
was o.k. at least eager was trying to fight.
Rupp didn't do that much, Eager landed a few. Win goes to Eager.
Again, I ask Flyer fans to look carefully at Ben Eager's Fight Card. He is a little bit too selective to be considered as a Top 5 Heavyweight. Yesterday he fought Mike Rupp (again !) and today he was not available to meet with Andrew Peters. Flyer fans have been negatively affected by decades of Ed Snider's "marketing" but surely this fraud is transparent to even the most loyal of Philly supporters. A true policeman will fight anyone,anywhere, and anytime. Protest all you wish, but Ben is a good fighter only against mediocre oppostion - period.
One punch for Eager, one takedown for rupp. Hugfest draw.
Why did Eager get the misconduct?
mike rupp sucks. he will not trade punches with any true fighter.hate philly but like eager.
I dont even think this warrents a vote since nothing happened. One shot from Eager take down by Rupp....boring Draw
No punches really landed...Eager fails to impress me more and more every fight with this act like a boxer, then start grappling style. Looks like Rupp got bored of it and tackled him.
