Marc Potvin win by TKO Fun 
6
The fight is in progress as the clip begins. Potvin landed a good left hand and dropped Russell to the ice. Marc missed a follow up shot. The ref stepped in and wrapped up Russell to make sure he didn't get tagged by additional blows.

I rate this as a TKO win for Potvin. Potvin tagged Russell with a good left hand and it looked like a clean knockdown to me. There was no aggressive tugging on Marc's part. Cam grabbed hold of his jersey on the way down, but the punch sent him in a downward trajectory. This should be regarded as a stoppage win.

This is the one of the first NHL fights I remember seeing as a kid. Quick scrap. Russell throws the first punches and gets in a couple, but those don't land that well. Potvin answers, lands a left to the side of the head, then another on the chin. Russell at the same time throws a right that misses and he goes down. Hard to tell if it was a knockdown or not, but Potvin definitely landed the better blows so I'm giving him the clear win in this one. EDIT: After seeing that youtube video that shows the final punch from a different angle than the feed I have, it looks pretty clear after all that it was a TKO for Potvin, his last punch looked to connect pretty well and it knocked Russell down. TKO win for Potvin in a quick scrap.

Stu Grimson narrow win Fun

Heavyweight City! The Chicago Black Hawks' Stu Grimson versus the Los Angeles Kings' Marty McSorley. This was one of the best fights of the 1992-93 season, a year that had many memorable battles.

McSorley and the Grim Reaper bump into each other at mid-ice and it is clear they both wanna go. The gloves spring off and they go at it. McSorley was on the offensive early, tossing several rights, but it looked like he fell a bit short with most of his punches. They grab on and Marty tugs and yanks at Stu's sweater, trying to pull him in closer.

Grimson answers with a couple looping rights, including a sharp uppercut that sends McSorley's lid flying off of his head. Marty immediately answers with his own right hand. Both men were throwing 'em and taking 'em. They begin going toe-to-toe, punch for punch, and it was a truly awesome exchange. No one got an edge at this juncture; it appeared as if both tough guys hurled about a dozen punches and connected about half of them. They tire out, stop throwing, and grab on again, wrestling hard against the boards.

Grimson tosses in a couple well-placed right hands as they grapple. McSorley loses his jersey and this forces the Reaper to stop throwing. They keep jostling hard and throw a few lefts that don't land. The linesmen start to enter just as it looks like they are about to renew the slugfest. Right when the zebras intervene, Grimson unleashes a big right hand, but McSorley is just able to duck away from it. The linesmen then succeed in separating the two tough guys.

As the linesmen stepped in, one last, looping right hand from Grimson caught one of the officials on the back of the helmet. Grimson stood back and put his hands up, his body language suggesting he was saying, "Whoops! Sorry about that."

These two warriors go to the penalty boxes. It was a very good fight. Grimson gets the slightest of edges over McSorley for landing a little better overall in a well-fought contest.

Both bump into each other in the LA zone and square off in one of the faceoff circles. Marty starts better in this fight pouring some rights at Grimson. Grimson eventually goes for an uppercut and a few rights before they start slugging it out in a great T2T action for a few seconds, both landing well with their rights. They wrestle a bit and Grimson gets McSorley's jersey over his head and lands a few good shots. McMoose eventually gets out of his jersey and starts throwing rights at the Grim Reaper. They both then hold on to each other for a while until they exchange a few more blows. Very even fight with the T2T action being the highlight of the fight.

Barry Melrose on McSorley: "I saw him fight once, I had never seen him before, and it was scary. That was when I knew it was time to retire."

Scott Parker on Grimson: "You didn't want to get hit with any of his bombs, because he hit really hard."

Tremendous fight between two big heavyweights. These two toughs went at it in a classic heavyweight tilt.

Behind the play they drop the gloves and McSorley throws a few rights that fall short. Grimson holds on then tries a few of his own, including one that knocks Marty's helmet off. They then exchange a series of big toe to toe right hands. These two stood in there firing 11 shots in each others face. This was a tough series of shots for two guys to take, but these guys battled on. Marty keeps throwing rights as Grimson regroups. Grimson then switches to his left and lands a few. Marty loses the jersey and starts winging rights at Grimson. Big Stu holds on and even starts to switch to his left again. McSorley then lands a good left on Grim and starts to come on as the linesmen get in. Grimson lands a shot as the linesmen have McSorley and then he accidentally plugs one of them.

Great fight with a number of momentum shifts. Early on I thought Grimson, but McSorley came back. In the end I'll have to call this a draw. Easily one of the fights of the year. I can't believe both guys were still standing after that 11-punch toe to toe trade-off.

After scrapping twice in the same game earlier in the season, heavyweights Marty McSorley and Stu Grimson get the sticks up one each other and then immediately drop the gloves shortly after the Marc Potvin and Cam Russell fight. They get a grip of the other's jersey in their fist. McSorley throws a quick five rights before Grimson throws any but McSorley fails to land any. He pulls and pushes on Grimson, then misses a right. Grimson misses a right uppercut but then lands a right jab as McSorley gets in close. They wrestle around for a couple seconds and then stand back. Both start throwing simultaneously, going toe-to-toe; Grimson throws eleven rights and lands five, McSorley throws thirteen rights and connects on six and Grimson lands better overall. Grimson stops throwing first,McSorley stops a second later, then they begin grappling in close. Grimson jerseys McSorley and stands back before throwing two rights and landing one. McSorley works his right arm free of his jersey and Grimson tries to contain it after missing a left jab. Grimson just tries to hang onto McSorley who throws three rights, landing one to the body McSorley then focuses on trying to get his arm loose as Grimson just tries to prevent that. Grimson is able to get a grip of McSorley's undershirt and misses a right as they grapple about. McSorley throws two right jabs, landing one as Grimson lands a right. Then McSorley throws two left hooks and lands one as Grimson begins to backpedal. The linesmen rush in and break the two up as Grimson misses two rights and McSorley misses a left. Without a doubt this was a great tussle between two of the best fighters in the league. Grimson did better early and got the leade but the fight was a lengthy one and McSorley came back late and evened it up. Close fight that I would say ended a stalemate.

This was a very exciting contest between two excellent heavyweights. Marty missed a punch and landed an average blow. He missed a punch, landed a body blow, and missed a couple of punches. Grimsom landed a body punch and a solid right.

The men had a good toe-to-toe exchange. Stu landed three solid punches and missed a couple. McSorley landed two average punches, missed three shots, and landed a solid connect. Grimson landed five solid connects. Marty landed two solid blows, missed a punch, and landed a couple of solid punches.

Grimson missed a punch, landed a solid right, and missed a left. McSorley landed an average shot and a couple of body blows. He landed two average connects and missed a punch. Stu missed a punch and landed a partial connect. McSorley landed an average left and a decent connect. He missed a left hand. The refs were stepping in to break up the fight and Grimson tagged McSorley with a pretty good right.

I rate this excellent fight as a draw. Both men landed a number of effective punches. Marty may have landed a few more along the way. It appeared that Grimson landed with a bit better pop.

beauty one. two classic battlers landing a lot . They have words earlier but Stu called out (Graham I think was coach at that time). Soon as Stu was back on ice he found Marty and way they go. Great bout lasted about minute.

Awesome fight, two big heavyweights trading bombs. I remember watching this game from TV when I was a kid and I loved this fight, one of the first hockey fights I ever saw and still one of my favorite fights of all time.

Great toe 2 toe here. Marty getting the edge in this section of the fight, and I give him a small edge at the end of the fight as well. Grimson nailed the ref at the end. He is a beserker no doubt.

Immense slugfest in one of the all-time great battles between 2 heavyweights. It featured a time-consuming toe-to-toe event sandwiched between prolonged long-range facialpunches & haymakers as they bomb each other throughout the fracas. At the time when the toe-to-toe punching ceased, I noticed that Grimson was the first to stop punching during that interval. But then Grimson compensates for that when he forges ahead during the rest of the fight with plenty of facialpunches which edged out McSorley at that point in time. When you add everything up, this has to be equated as a draw in mighty superb action between 2 monsters.
