Clark was a highly touted rookie who was seeking to make a name for himself as a physical presence. He couldn't have picked a tougher guy to fight than all time great battler Behn Wilson. The two had a terrific action bout on this occasion.

Wendel landed a solid left uppercut. Behn missed a right hand and landed a pretty good shot. Clark landed a couple of pretty good right crosses. He missed a few follow up blows. Wilson landed a good right hand and landed a partial connect. He missed with a few attempts.

Clark connected with a solid left hook. Wilson landed a solid right uppercut and missed a punch. Wendel landed a pretty good right. Behn landed a solid right and missed a blow. Clark landed a good right cross. Wilson countered with a partially connecting right hand.

Wendel had a good sequence of blows. He landed a solid left and a pretty good uppercut while the jersey briefly came up over Behn's eyes. Clark switched hands and landed a solid right. He missed a follow up punch. It looked like Wendel was picking up momentum in the bout. Behn countered with a hard right hand that evened the score.

Clark kept his wits about him and pulled his head back as Wilson tried to pour it on. Behn missed with three straight blows. He landed a solid right. Clark missed a punch and came back with a solid left. Wilson missed a punch and landed a solid uppercut. Wendel missed with a couple of attempts and the refs stopped the fight.

This was an excellent bout where both men landed numerous quality punches. It was pretty even in terms of punches landed. Both guys delivered blows with good pop. This fight was too close for me to call. I think a draw is the right decision. Both men had good moments in this classic fight.

Clark proved to Wilson that he was a force to be reckoned with. Behn had a look in his eyes after the fight that revealed that Wendel had earned his respect. It was like he was saying to himself, "Nice job kid. That was a great fight." Wendel was still a teenager at the time and he gave a terrific performance against one of the most dangerous and experienced veteran fighters in the NHL.

Wendel was a good NHL power forward. He was a very good fighter and he would go with the toughest heavyweights in the league. He would go with guys in his own weight class, like his multi-fight battles with Jeff Chychrun and Garth Butcher. He also went with top heavyweights. He had several bouts with Bob Probert and Marty McSorley. He was usually very competitive in these fights and held his own.

Clark was one of the toughest pound-for-pound fighters of his era. He was a guy who had five seasons with more than 30 goals when he was healthy. Unfortunately, Clark's hell-bent-for-election style contributed to serious injuries that often limited his availablity for games.

Wendel was a memorable player who could score goals, dish out big hits, and hold his own against top heavyweights in the NHL. He earned a lot of respect by being willing to compete with elite fighters. He could have taken on second tier guys and still developed a reputation for toughness. Clark did not take the safe route. He always answered the bell and did not back away from tough guys even when out of his weight class or battling a serious injury. He impressed his teammates and earned the respect of the opposition by his toughness and grit.

Two greats going here in an all-time classic. Wendel Clark vs. Behn Wilson. One of the best ever against one of the best pound for pound all-time.

The first shot we have of these two, they are in a crouch and Clark lands a left uppercut. Wilson pulls up and gets hold of Clark. Wilson fires a right that lands, but Clark throws several quick rights in return. Wilson looks like he wants to trade blows, but Clark is too fast.

Clark then switches in mid-stream and begins to fire lefts at a suddenly crouched over Wilson. Wilson is off balance and tries to throw some rights against Clark's lefts, but none seem to land. Wilson then lands a right uppercut. Clarks is winded and throws a wild right from long range. Wilson is coming back, landing an overhand right. The two begin to trade long-range rights. These punches are wild and none land.

Clark then manages to pull Wilson's jersey over his head. He fires a good left uppercut, that pops Wilson's head up and out of his jersey. Clark fires off two rights landing the first one solidly. Wilson responds by landing a straight right flush on the chin-his best punch of the fight. Here Wilson lands another right and Clark throws a left wildly. He is off balance and Wilson is getting stronger now. They then exchange a final series of long range shots. Both seem to land a few, but are exhausted and the linesmen jump in.

A great battle between two of the best ever. Much too close to call this one so I would say draw. Make no mistake about it Wilson did not look good against Clark in the early going, but managed to turn it around. Clark was always tough at home and always got the jump on his opponents.

Behn Wilson and Wendel Clark drop the gloves and grab onto the jersey. Wilson has his head down early and Clark lands a left from underneath and Wilson puts his head up. Wilson misses a right and Clark loses his helmet. Then Clark and Wilson connect with overhand rights at the same time and Clark throws three rights afterwards, landing one. Then Wilson misses an over the top right at the same time Clark misses a right. Wilson lands an over the top right and then misses two rights. Clark then lands a left as Wilson misses a right and Clark lands a follow up left over the top. Wilson moves in closer to Clark and throws two rights, one connecting. Clark then lands two rights and Wilson throws two rights of his own, one landing. Clark stands back and misses an overhand right then Wilson misses an overhand right. Clark lands a right and gets the jersey over Wilson's head. Clark connects on a left from underneath and then lands two rights after Wilson's jersey comes down. Wilson then connects with a right and Clark misses a right. Wilson misses an overhand right and then lands a right. Clark misses a left as Wilson misses a right and then they each miss at the same time, Clark a left and Wilson a right. Wilson throws three rights and lands one, then Clark misses a right over the top. Wilson misses a right and Clark connects on a right. Then the linesmen barge in between them and stop the fight. Great tilt between two very tough guys. Clark very much held his own with the more experienced Wilson and had the upper hand at some points in the fight. Still Wilson stayed in there till the end and also did well. I call it a draw.

Very tough fight. Clark stood up well to "Big Behn", trading punches with him. Both were throwing big rights, Clark having the edge in the beginning, eventually switching to lefts. But Wilson was consistent with his right and just hammered away. Wilson bullied his way through Clark, landing the biggest punch of the fight. Just because Clark got the jersey over Wilson's head doesn't necessarily mean that he won the fight or got the draw. It was a good scrap but no way that Clark won or had the edge here. Wilson won this one, not by much but it was a win. I know that people generally like Clark and dislikes Wilson. But you must be fair and look carefully at this fight.

This is one of my favorite fights of all time. Wilson and Clark, two of the top fighters ever to play in the NHL. Both guys are throwing bombs, Wilson with the rights throughout the fight and Clark with the rights in the early stages and the lefts in the later stages. Each guy lands a few great shots. Clark has Wilson's jersey over his head at one point but it gets back down quickly and Wendel can't really capitalize on it. If I had a gun to my head and had to choose a winner I wouldn't be able to. Great scrap.

Really a classic. Both players just standing there and trading vicious shots. Several direct hits between two of the best fighters of their era. Neither man goes down and both are exhausted at the end of the fight. Doesn't get much better than this!

One of those all-time-calber fights. Clark and Wilson exchange for a long time, Wilson exclusively rights and Clark being ambidextrous. Clark for a moment had Wilson's jersey over his head and looked to tilt the fight his way, but the jersey comes down again.

Awesome fight, both landed some bombs. Great job by Clark, he was only 19 years old but more than held his own against one of the best fighters of all time.

Clark stays busy throughout the fight and has the early going of it landing several clean shots to wilson. Behn gets going later landing some good counter punches while clark wildly switches hands trying to keep wilson off balance. Clark was doing well until he threw 2 right hands that came up short and Wilson just drilled him with a counter right hand. To clarks credit he continues to fire away as wilson lands a few more grazing shots as clark starts slowing down to end this great scrap. Draw

A classic tilt. I think Wilson gets the edge, the way he came back during the second half. But you have to give Clark credit for the way he gives the big man so much hell. I didn't realize Clark had 31 fights over the year. That's a ton. He could have lasted a long time if they would have had someone else do the heavy lifting, but then I guess he wouldn't have been Clark.

Good toe to toe battle. Clark had the upper hand early, but Wilson came on strong towards the end. One gets the feeling that Clark was somewhat fortunate that the refs intervened when they did.

Wilson landed more and better than Clark did. By the time the linesmen got in there, Clark looked gassed, and it seemed Wilson could've gone longer. Narrow win goes to Wilson.

Starts as a fight in progress. A slugfest is underway between the talented & frequent-fighter Wendel Clark versus the brute Behn Wilson. Both guys land consecutive facialpunches in alternating intervals and some of these punches by both guys are the high impact type. It looked even up all the way up until the refs break them up. Thus, a draw in an action-fight but I have to give Clark alot more credit in this fight because he's lighter, much smaller and less-bulkier than Wilson.
