Nick Kypreos runs into Mike Ricci along the bench. Ricci bounces off of Kypreos and collides with the glass partition at the end of the bench. Play stops after the hit is delivered. Chris Simon doesn't like the hit, and moves in on Kypreos... Fun

Chris Simon goes after Nick Kypreos for the hit on Mike Ricci, knocking him over with a shove. Tie Domi steams in and gives Simon a facewash, driving him backwards and nearly over the top of the bench. Domi and Simon shove and jostle, then they latch onto each other and grapple.

Before things progress much further, Kevin Collins runs in and gets between them. Collins and Ray Scapinello break up Domi and Simon and send them to the penalty boxes.

Tie Domi narrow win Fun 
7
After losing the first 2 rounds to Simon Domi is able to defeat his opponent this time around.

One of the Leafs is tripped up and he crashes hard into the boards. All of the players gather and Domi and Simon pair off and decide to go at it again.

Domi lands a quick left as they are locking up. Simon quickly gets his left going and hits both shoulder and the side of Tie's head. The 2 then go back and forth with the lefts neither landing well. Simon in particular although he has the reach advantage throws rather sloppily and misses with his punches because of it. Simon does manage to get a few in and Domi gets off balance but he recovers and they go against the boards. Domi misses with 2 lefts and Simon misses with a left as well. Domi then switches to the right and lands 2 big rights catching Simon by surprise and he stuns him. Simon and Domi then get in close and wrestle and the linesmen break them up.

Narrow win for Domi here. Simon had the slight edge when they went back and forth with the lefts but Domi's 2 big rights stunned Simon and were the best punches in the fight hands down. This is enough to give Domi the narrow win.

Tie Domi narrow win Fun

Mark Kolesar is intentionally tripped by Adam Foote and goes awkwardly into the boards, hurting himself. A small scrum gathers and Tie Domi and Chris Simon get together in it. Domi loses his helmet and soon leaves the crowd with Simon where they decide to shed the mitts for the third time this season. They grab on, both gripping the other's jersey by the right hand and Domi lands a left with Simon throwing four lefts after. Simon lands two, the first one glancing the top of Domi's head while the second connects a bit better. Domi counters, connecting with a left before Simon throws two overhand lefts, landing one. Domi then attempts to get spinning with Simon and comes up short with a left. Simon then lands a left hook after Domi prods with the right. Domi comes back, connecting with a left and ducking under Simon's arm to the outside while Simon misses two lefts. The spinning picks up and Simon attempts to adjust his grip of Domi's jersey while Domi lands a left to the helmet. When the spinning slows, Simon misses a left over the top that Domi ducks but when Domi raises his head, Simon throws two lefts, grazing the top of Domi's head with one. Then Simon lands a left while Domi misses a left hook and then Simon misses with a left as Domi narrowly connects on a left. Simon misses a left and then Domi misses an overhand left which puts him off balance and he soon goes to the ice. Simon lets Domi up and Domi throws two straight lefts, landing one. Simon then misses a left hook that Domi dodges nicely and Simon ends up hitting the glass. Domi switches hands and then rocks Simon by landing a big right to the jaw while Simon misses another left. Simon immediately wraps his arms around Domi to get in close quarters while Domi follows up, throwing three rights and landing one. They just wrestle for a little and then the linesmen come in and they bring the fight to an end. Really good fight just like their other ones. However while Simon won the first two, this one was more even for much of the fight until late where Domi landed a bomb square on Simon. Domi gets the slight win in this one.

This was an excellent fight between two elite battlers. These were big hitting heavyweights. Domi landed a couple of solid lefts. Simon missed a shot and landed an average blow. He missed a left, landed an average connect, and landed a solid shot. Domi landed two average blows and a solid connect.

Chris landed a pretty good shot. He missed a punch and landed a solid left. Tie landed a solid blow, missed a shot, and landed a solid connect. Simon missed a blow and landed a couple of solid shots. He missed a punch and landed a pretty good blow.

Domi missed a punch, slipped for a second, and landed a solid left. Simon missed a punch. Tie landed a good right and this stopped Chris in his tracks. Simon clinched and Tie missed a punch and landed a decent connect. The refs stopped the excellent contest.

I rate this as a narrow win for Domi. Both men landed several solid left hooks. It was a close and competitive contest. I think Domi's right hand at the end secured the victory. This was an excellent bout full of action.

Tie Domi clear win Fun 
8
After Toronto's Mark Kolesar gets tripped up and falls heavily into the end boards, the play is halted by a whistle. All of the Avalanche and Maple Leaf skaters gather in one corner and do some pushing and shoving. Fierce bulldog Tie Domi seeks out and then pairs off with towering leviathan Chris Simon, who is ready and willing to go. They shove at each other until the gloves come off.

Simon and Domi both have the windmills going in this one. Simon is busier and throws more punches than Domi, but Tie is more accurate and actually makes more connections than Chris does. Simon slugs away on the head of Domi as Tie comes back with some well-placed rights and lefts. At this point, the fight is pretty even.

The Colorado heavyweight powered Domi to the ice and it looked like the battle was over, but Tie roared back to his feet and hit Simon with a good left. Domi then switched hands and drilled Simon with two huge right hands directly to the face. Simon appears stunned by those two right-handed blows. He holds on to the Toronto tough guy with both arms and stops trying to throw any punches himself. The two warriors grapple against the boards for a moment. The linesmen intervene, and it's done.

As the two heavyweights make their way to the penalty boxes, you can see that neither man was unscathed in this ferocious fight. Simon has a little blood around his mouth as he goes to the box, while Domi has a small cut between his eyes.

It was a great fight with a lot of action, and Domi notches a solid win over Simon. I'd have called it a draw, but then Domi made it a clear win by rocking Simon with those two big rights and pretty much stopping Chris in his tracks.

Excellent fight in which they trade huge punches. It looked about even to me the first time I saw it, but after watching the clip about 10 more times and counting the punches, I have no doubt that Domi landed more and better. Simon did connect once with a good left, but Domi landed several bombs, and his right-handed cross at the end would have dropped most NHL fighters.

Pretty even fight. Both connected with a few shots. Simon threw his lefts and had pulled Domi down, but Domi got back quickly and finished the fight with two fine rights that found its target. Looked like a draw to me, maybe the smallest edge to Simon. My count: Both Domi & Simon 12 punches.

At first glance, it looks like Simon wins this one. But, after watching it a few times, Domi lands a ton of punches, while Simon doesn't land so many. Excellent showing by Tie here.

Domi holds back, waits for his opening and then takes it, usually landing a solid left in the process throughout this fight. Simon also landed a few hard lefts but at the end of the fight Domi tagged Simon with two really good punches and Simon kind of just hung on and waited for the refs to come in.

As much as I hate to say it, Domi wins this fight. It looks like Simon is gonna pull off another win over Domi, but after Simon knocks Domi down, he gets back up and lands four unanswered lefts on Simon. One of the punches by Domi appears to have stunned Simon.

Ok, i'm back to reviewing fights, although reluctant. The amount of domi-simon punches that connected was almost or just about even and maybe simon did connect with just 1 more than domi, but then simon bear hugged domi because he didn't want to exchange anymore punches with domi, so this also factors into the decision of why i have to call this fight even.

This was a draw, could be called a narrow win for either guy. No way there's a clear or decisive win here. Simon landed more, Domi landed better. At the end Domi landed one big right to the face and right landed to the side of the helmet. Then they both held on until linesmen stepped in.Reply

Me, a homer? HA! What nonsense. That fight was PRECISELY as I called it.

Dust off a tape and give it another look. This is the third Domi-SImon fight we're talking about, right? Toronto visting Colorado in the later part of the 95-96 season. They collide near the boards and go at it.

They exchange big shots for a few seconds, then Simon swings Domi off his skates. Domi quickly regains his feet and blasts Simon in the face with two huge rights. Simon is clearly DONE after accepting those punches. He clamps on to Domi until the linesmen intercede.
Win: Domi.

If you can't see that, too bad. That is the simple truth.

Pull MY posts off? ME, a homer? HA!
You're an insect to me, Cementhead.
Go away now.

How do you call the other Simon-Domi fights? If this is a decisive win for Domi, then they're both decisive wins for Simon, right? This was the closest fight of the three fights, two other fights were much more one-sided.Reply

The first two Domi-Simon fights are both wins for Simon. The first was a narrow win, the second one was more clearcut.

If you go by the definitions that are in place on this site, a "decisive win" is when one guy is in a relatively helpless situation. Domi-Simon #3 qualifies. Domi's two final right hands clearly stunned Simon, who clamped on with both arms until the linesmen came in.

In the previous two Domi-Simon fights, Simon landed more and thus outslugged Domi, but never did beat him into submission or have him a helpless situation.
In #1, Simon connected more, but that's all. Domi was landing just as high-quality punches as Simon, just less of them.
#2 was a clear win for Simon, who landed a lot of great shots, while Domi was barely able to reach his taller foe.

So, overall, I call their three fight feud 1 win for Domi, 2 wins for Simon.

So you think this was biggest win of the three bouts they had? No way, the two other fights were much more one-sided. Domi landed last punches here and got a draw, or maybe a narrow win, it wasn't like Simon was holding on for dear life with Domi pounding him and linesmen having to save Simon, that would have been a decisive win. After those final shots Domi held on too, they were both tired and linesmen stepped in.

So how about then some Domi-Ray fights, where Ray lost his jersey and Domi was just holding on when Ray was firing punches and linesmen jumped in to the rescue? Why shouldn't they be decisive wins for Ray?

After watching the end of the fight several times, I'd say that you might have a point here. That right cross by Domi indeed looked like it stunned Simon. However, I think that to say that Simon hung on for dear life after taking it would be pushing it. Watch Kevin Collins. He is only a few feet away when the punch lands, but he just keeps on watching. Knowing him, one would expect Kevin Collins to jump right in the moment he sees someone in trouble. In the event, he allowed them to continue and it actually ended by mutual agreement.

This said, it's never clear-cut and as I said, you might have a point here. Only Simon knows how badly he was hurt by that punch by Domi.

MULLET SAYS: "So how about then some Domi-Ray fights, where Ray lost his jersey and Domi was just holding on when Ray was firing punches and linesmen jumped in to the rescue? Why shouldn't they be decisive wins for Ray?"

Ah, but there is a difference between the Domi-Ray fights where Domi was holding on and the Domi-Simon fight where Simon was holding on!
In the instance with Simon, the big man was holding on because he got hit with two very hard punches and was stunned a bit.
In the instances with Ray (the 93-94 fight and two of the 95-96 fights), Domi was holding on because of Ray's jerseylessness. He had no sweater to latch onto and had to grab with both arms.
You do see the difference in having to hold on because your opponent is cutting corners and getting naked from the waist-up as opposed to having to hold on because you got smacked with a haymaker... don't you?

no. 7 SAYS: "However, I think that to say that Simon hung on for dear life after taking it would be pushing it." and "Only Simon knows how badly he was hurt by that punch by Domi."

Well, I never said he hung on "for dear life", but it is quite clear that after accepting those two right hands, Simon stopped trying to throw punches himself and grabbed onto Domi with both hands. He was definitely a tad stunned and seemed to lose interest in the fight after that.
True, only Simon knows how much he was hurt. We only have video evidence to go by. But I think this video evidence is pretty strong, and points to a decisive win for Domi.

Yes, Simon would've gotten the edge if Domi hadn't nailed him with those two big rights at the end. But Simon didn't get the edge, nor did he earn a draw. Those last two shots stunned him a bit and made him stop fighting and start hanging on. Domi wins, end of story.Reply

I used to post at that site (Hockey-fights.com) that Cementhead referred to and Chris is one of the most respected posters there. He studies fights and provides a thorough, detailed analysis. On the otherhand, Cementhead is basically a shit disturber who yearns to be accepted. Although I might not agree with his call on this fight, Chris is hardly a "homer" of any fighter. He just happened to see the ending of this fight differently.

I joined this site for the sole purpose of posting this reply because...even though I have little, if any interaction with Chris...he is quite knowledgeable and seems to put a great deal of effort into his fight reports, which were often quite informative. Attacking his credibility is f-ing absurd, but Cementhead is a bitter, major tool so it's not surprising that he would attack Chris for no reason. I would think that 99% of the other board referred to above would agree with me.
