Its a draw. Nobody landed. It actually looked like a drill at the Boogaard Fight camp, but I give the edge to the campers.

Quick fight. No winner. Both got in at least one good punch but that's about it. Draw. No more. No less.

ballard with knockdown but he didn't appear to actually land any punches where i believe backes landed 2 or 3 so give it a draw. props to both for fighting to the code

Not a great bout. It ended very quickly. Ballard landed one or two. Backed landed too in the square off part. Backed turned his back and Ballard taked him down. A draw.

Pretty weak fight, not many shots landing.

Incredible size difference and the underdog wins.

David Backes vs Keith Ballard Ballard puts a hit on Backes behind the play, and they drop the gloves and start to square off. They eventually grab on, and Ballard throws a flurry of legs, knocking Backes off balance and falling to the ice. Quick fight, Backes couldn't get it going in this one.

Posted by SCOTTSO on October 05, 2007 at 05:24 AM

crap fight ! backes wins with the 2 landed jabs

Posted by mikebflorida on October 06, 2007 at 10:59 AM

Props to Ballard for shedding the visor. Edge to Backes for landing the only 2 shots, 2 nice stiff jabs. To bad he fell down.

Not much of a fight, but Backes out pointed him.

Posted by flieg44 on October 05, 2007 at 10:53 AM

Two nice jabs by Backes to start the fight.

Posted by Panther_66 on October 06, 2007 at 10:29 AM

I mean it was a close fight, but Backes did have the best hit, it goes to the Blues!!!

Posted by islandersfan39 on February 20, 2008 at 12:35 PM

idk what to say bad fight? lol

Posted by Riomouse911 on October 06, 2007 at 02:03 AM

Uhh, I never saw ballard hit anything but shoulder pad. At least he can take a jab or two.

Posted by WildFan31 on October 06, 2007 at 08:55 PM

David Backes reppin from blaine,MN started well and dragged ballard down with him. he also has a hot ass wife.

Posted by cabsf15e on October 07, 2007 at 02:14 AM

Backes got in 3 decent shots and Ballard got in 1 left...how does anyone give this fight to Ballard...YGBSM!! Just because a guy hauls someone down to the ice does not win a fight!! Not that these two "heavyweights" from the land of 10,000 lakes are going to earn a living as enforcers!! At least these two squared off like men, got rid of the lids and were locked and loaded...Nicky Boy, take a look at this video and observe how it's done correctly!!

Good Job Keith... SKI U MAH

Posted by FightsOnSkates on October 05, 2007 at 02:45 AM

Edge Backes...(2) nice (pre-hug) shots. Ballard looked sloppy.

Posted by hncreature on October 05, 2007 at 08:22 PM

Only because of the jabs...Backes
