add westgarth to the punk list.. draw
i go with draw
Decent bout Westgarth the more active combatant gets the edge from me, good uppercut and try to establish some bodyshots.
Gotta give this to Martin, a frame by frame look shows Martin connects withe a upper cut the only head shot in the fight other than the lame body punches that did not even fiss Martin but probably softened his pant kidney protector. Martin a 21 yr old 210lb rook had no hesitation fighing this heavy at 250 lbs. No doubt Westgarth would not square up with Martin which is a big sign of respect, as I said the lame body punches were his only avenue since this rook was strong and Westgarth was is no mood to let go of the neck grip he had on Martin which was keeping hi m from landing other shots. So Martin slim win, fearless,landed the upper and was no where manhandled by a 40lb heavyier fighter. Isles got a winner here kid can play the game also, only a yr. out of playing in the ohl. Both are good Windsor boys
EDGE Westgarth for throwing/landing more although not much landed but he was active of the two. Decent tussle in my eyes/book. I also understand the draw because not much landed by Westy and not doing any big damage, usually i dont count those body-shots but in this fight those body-ones was actually solid ones.doinf a damage for sure.
Westgarth with a plethora of body punches.
westgarth gets the win in this fight.
Body shots are fine, Westgarth was throwing and landing. which is more than Martin can say. Win Westgarth...
joedog- Nice post and it would apply if we were all blind or crazy just like that observation of yours. Frame by frame!!! What is this The Abraham Zapruder Film?
westgarth wins and im sure martin felt those body shots
Easy win Westgarth!
Common Martin- if you're going to drop the gloves square up and take it like a man!
Those body blows freakin hurt, loved the quick left from Westgarth, not close. a total win for Westgarth
Clear win for Westgarth.
Whats with Princeton producing two quality NHL fighters? Good bout for Westgarth
Good for Westy getting in there and mixing it up
Martin fought like a first class pussy and got his ass beat. He established his value=zero
Solid blows to the same area of the ribs will hurt, even with some protective eqmt. Round 1 for Westgarth.
I like Matt Martin because he is just a beast, but Westgarth is just bigger and won that fight.
win Hanson Brother
not much. reminded me of the game "punch out" -- "body blow, body blow, body blow..." edge westgarth for quantity.
Body shots??? Who gives a s##t, this ain't boxing, this is Hockey!! The only shots that count are the ones to the DOME!!!!!
That's a 3 at best. Martin should be more careful--he's likely to get killed against a guy like Westgarth. Westgarth should be ashamed--you outweigh the guy by 40 pounds and the best you can do is a half dozen useless punches to the rib pads? Even Martin got one good slap in. Draw.
I've seen Westgarth look better. For a bad-ass, I'm not very impressed at how Westgarth avoids the toe-to-toe by grabbing Martin's collar for dear life and using it to turn Martin away and down. Martin can't get a shot in on Westgarth because Westgarth doesn't allow him to square off with him. Westgarth looks like an overrated wuss here. Your mileage may vary. It's up to him to live up to his rep as a heavyweight and he blows it hard. The reason he has to throw those body shots is because he can't simultaneously hold Martin at arm's length by the collar, and get in money shots on Martin's face. Kudos to a game, but inexperienced Martin for stepping up. He's strong and fearless, and I don't doubt he'll know to sidestep Westgarth's timid jersey grabs the next time these two dance. I can't give Westgarth a win on this, though he appeared to control the fight, so I'm calling it a draw.
Obviously this announcer has never been punched in the ribs before.
Westgarth pummeled MM with body shots
A potpourri of body shots from Westy. W for the greasy haired man from Princeton.
Any time a 6'5", 240 lb professional athlete tees off on your rib cage, it's going to hurt. Clear win for Westgarth.
