Ballard knocks Backes down with an open-ice hit. Backes gets up and challenges Ballard who accepts. They drop the gloves, remove the helmets, and square off near the side boards. Backes connects with two jabs before they even grab onto each other. Ballard flails away and finally gets a piece of Backes' jersey. Ballard throws three rights to the side of Backes' head. Backes answers with a right cross during the flurry. Ballard then pushes Backes to the ice and the linesmen are right there to break things up.
Its a draw. Nobody landed. It actually looked like a drill at the Boogaard Fight camp, but I give the edge to the campers.
was alot more dancing than fighting
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.
OK fight...Good punch by Ballard
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.
Good fight for the little guy
Ballard got the better of backes
crap fight ! backes wins with the 2 landed jabs
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.
Two nice jabs by Backes to start the fight.
I mean it was a close fight, but Backes did have the best hit, it goes to the Blues!!!
idk what to say bad fight? lol
Uhh, I never saw ballard hit anything but shoulder pad. At least he can take a jab or two.
David Backes reppin from blaine,MN started well and dragged ballard down with him. he also has a hot ass wife.
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
Edge Backes...(2) nice (pre-hug) shots. Ballard looked sloppy.
Only because of the jabs...Backes
