Mick Vukota win by TKO Fun

Mick Vukota and Al Secord bump into each other near centre ice and don't hesitate to drop the gloves. No square off, these two just get a grip right away. As they do, Secord throws three lefts, landing one. They begin wrestling but then Vukota gets his left free and pops Secord with a left that knocks him to the ice. Vukota misses two lefts as Secord falls but then lands two lefts. The referees barge in between them and try breaking them apart but Secord won't let go of Vukota. After a long time of just holding onto the combatants, Secord gets his left loose and throws six lefts at Vukota, landing just one. Then the linesman holding Secord tackles him to the ice where Vukota misses two lefts. Vukota changes hands and throws eight rights down at Secord but every one misses. Vukota then steps back and a linesman takes Vukota away from Secord. A short fight but these two kept going at each other long after the linesmen came in. A TKO for Vukuta, he knocked Secord to the ice with a left. Okay tilt.

Secord traded punches freely with Vukota and ended up paying a price in the end. Al missed a punch and landed a couple of decent left hands. Mick took his time and waited for an opening. He uncorked a good left hook and dropped Al to the ice in impressive fashion. Vukota landed a partial connect, missed a punch, and landed a couple of decent blows before the refs came in to restore order.

The refs were trying to separate the men and Al refused to let the bout end. He landed several ineffective lefts on the back of Vukota. Mick landed a couple of effective blows to the head and several shots to the torso. None of these blows should factor into the official verdict because they occured after the fact.

I rate this as a TKO win for Vukota. He caught Al cold with the stoppage blow. It was a good shot that landed flush. It was an impressive win for Mick as Secord rarely suffered a stoppage loss.

Secord threw some short lefts, then Vukota landed a great left and drops Secord. Secord wouldn't want to give up and started throwing punches over refs. The ref then took Secord down and Vukota pounded away on Secord. Secord was cut badly around his right eye.

Secord and Vukota drop 'em in the center ice area and Secord wades in landing a couple of lefts but Vukota puts him on his seat with his first punch. He throws a few more while Secord is down. After picking himself off the ice, a now embarrassed Secord, seeking redemption, hears the Chicago faithful urging him to give some payback. He reaches around the linesman holding him and fires several punches to the back of Vukota before the linesman stops him by throwing him down to the ice. Vukota, not one to let an opportunity pass by, gets loose to throw a few lefts at the fallen Hawk that miss and then some rights which mostly land to Secord's leg. Entertaining scrap.

Vukota and Secord traded lefts with each other in the beginning. Secord made the mistake to go down low with his head [like many times before], almost burying it in Vukota's chest and payed dearly for it. Vukota caught him with a very nice left that dropped Secord. The linesmen came in between, but Secord of course wouldn't let it be at that and tried to hold on to Vukota's jersey before punching at him. Secord was then tackled to the ice by one ref. and Vukota got back at Secord punching him mostly in the legs while the zebras were all over both of them. The zebras certainly didn't do a very good job in keeping them away from each other.

Fight didn't last ten seconds. Secord fell and got up to throw a couple of more shots at Vukota when the ref that was holding him fell.

For some reason Secord thought that he could just grab onto Vukota and wrestle and it is true that sometimes Vukota had those type of fights but not this time. Vukota began throwing a string of powerful lefts and Secord just folded up and fell to the ice. Secord's refusal to end the fight at that point simply revealed to the world his sense of humiliation. This was such a low point in Secord's career to be destroyed in a fight like that on home ice.

Secord gets wrecked with a left and then trys to redeem himself with the linesmen in the way. Vukota responds and Secord gets the worst of it again.

As soon as they come together, vukota decks him early in the match. The refs break them up & vukota is embarrassed, so he trys to make it look good by throwing punches in between the linesmen. Vukota returns the favor as he goes through the motions of repeating what secord did.

Not much of a fight until Vukota rains down some left hands on Secord knocking him down for the TKO win.

I was never much of a Secord fan so it was nice to see Vukota lay him out then pop him a couple more times on the ice.

I agree, when secord played on the bruins, he played the same role as don saleski did on the flyers... they tried acting like thugs to magnify the bruins & flyers holy-terror image, while the only thing they were capable of doing, was simple grappling with opponents.

So true

Secord has this big rep and I've never understood why

Guy was a wrestler 99% of the time, unless he suckered a guy

Secord is the perfect example of what a "fake-tough guy" is ... the only people that were fooled by his image over the years, were only the new guys coming into the league who didn't know any better... however, the phony-front that he put up was recognized by the more experienced players in the league over the years, so he never generated any fear into at least those opponents.

Did you create 2 accounts so you could talk to yourself? Secord was a 50 goal scorer who feared NOBODY. He didn't always win his fights, but he never backed down, and he won his fair share against some tough guys. He had wins over Larry Playfair, Joey Kocur, Chris Nilan, Tiger Williams, Kim Clackson, Jay Wells, etc.
When you are a 50 goal scorer at the NHL, and your fight card reads as a who's who of the greatest fighters of all-time, then you're a very tough customer.

He fought Probert, Brown, Gillies, Kocur, Playfair 6 times, Todd Ewen, Willie Plett 5 times, Paul Holmgren, Dave Richter, Gary Howatt, Randy Holt, Craig Coxe, Wendel Clark, Basil McCrae, Danny Gare, Glenn Cochrane, Tim Hunter, Mick Vukota, Randy McKay, etc.

The only 50 goal scorer with a comparable fight card is perhaps Rick Tocchet, and he's a legit badass.

You should read the post by michiann above, he's spot on with his review and might help you out. While his card may be impressive his fighting style, not so much. He hugged nearly every fight and defense was always his first option leading to a lot of boring draws. He was a good player no doubt but he was not a tough guy by any means.

Steve Thomas is checking Pat Lafontaine along the halfboards and trips him up, prompting Ken Baumgartner to move in. Baumgarther shoulders Thomas to the ice as Thomas reaches for the puck. Lafontaine gets up and is pinned to the boards by Dave Manson while Dirk Graham gives Baumgartner a small shove but Baumgartner ignores it and goes skating to Manson. Lafontaine pushes Manson back as Baumgartner gets there and pulls Manson away. The linesmen go immediately to them two and get them separated while a few others pile in. Thomas grabs Lafontaine, Graham then comes into the fray and Gary Nylund leaps onto the pile, knocking them all down. Nylund holds onto Thomas to keep him away from Lafontaine while other players pair off but stay out of the pile. Troy Murray roughly tries to pull Nylund of the pile but then Doug Crossman comes in and grabs Murray. They move off the pile which is then sorted out by the linesmen. Fun

Steve Larmer jousts with David Volek after a whistle beside the Chicago Blackhawks' net and Brent Sutter barges in to stick up for Volek. Duane Sutter tries to intercept his brother but gets knocked over as Volek presses onward at Larmer. Larmer backs into the boards as Keith Brown grabs Brent Sutter with a linesman staying there to watch them while the other linesman follows Volek and Larmer to the boards. Steve Konroyd reaches in on Volek but things settle there pretty quick with the linesmen in the middle of it. Away from them though, Duane Sutter gets up and grapples with Jeff Norton, prompting Brent Sutter to go back in to help his teammate out. Brent Sutter tries to grab Duane Sutter, knocking his helmet off as Brown tries to hold Brent Sutter back. A linesman goes in between Brent Sutter and Norton while the other linesman gets between Brent Sutter and Brown. Brent Sutter is pretty mad while trying to get away from Brown and they angrily jaw at each other as they get broken up. Longer scrum than the first one in the game and unusual to see the two brothers getting after each other in this one. Fun
