Jim Kyte narrow win Fun 
9
This fight is one of the longest, most awesome fights I've ever seen. A lot like the Probert/Coxe fight in Vancouver. Coxe and Kyte are pushing and shoving as the play goes into the Jets zone. They throw the gloves and square up. They circle around for a few seconds, and then both just go to town with rights. No defence at all in this one as they just stand there blasting away at each other. It's really early in the game, so their both fired up. They just keep throwing rights at each other's head. Helmets fly off and they don't even slow down. They must've gone for well over a minute. Coxe seems to get the upper hand as Kyte looks to finally get tired. He fell to one knee, and Coxe just kept going. The linesmen were about to jump in when Kyte got back up and grabbed Coxe in a clinch. They wrestled around as they looked to catch their second wind. Then they start to throw again, and Kyte finally lands a punch to Coxe that staggers him. Then he catches Coxe with another shot to the head that looks to drop him. I don't know if the punch put Coxe down, or if it was just sheer exhaustion and Kyte pushing him off balance. Coxe went over backwards with Kyte landing on top of him. The linesmen came in, but both guys were so tired that they couldn't even stand up again. Both guys just kind of sat on the ice for about ten-fifteen seconds before they slowly got up and skated to the box for a well-deserved rest. The crowd gave them a big standing O as they wobbled off.

And before anyone asks, I've never seen this fight on tape anywhere. I never saw the hilites that night, and back then there was nobody in Winnipeg that was taping. I'd like to give it a "10" rating, but with no video available to back it up, I have no way to prove it.

These same two fought again a few nights later in Vancouver, but I've never heard anything about it. Even the Vancouver newspapers didn't mention it.

Jim Kyte clear win Fun

An average fight with both guys throwing rights Kyte throwing and landing more. Kyte had Crawford in bad situation so Crawford lifted Kyte up and threw him to the ice bcause Kyte was starting to take over the fight. Crawford was a pretty strong when he played, he lifted Kyte up and threw him down, Kyte was a pretty big boy.

Jim Kyte decisive win Fun

This isn't Marc Crawford. It was actually a guy called Jeff Crawford. He had made his name with the Regina Pats in the WHL. Bill LaForge had coached the Pats at the time and gave him a tryout with the Canucks.

Anyways, this one was, according to every account I've heard, was a lop-sided beating of Crawford. I was at this game, but missed the fight while taking a piss. Anyways, when I got back to my seat, everyone said it was as one-sided as they come. My buddy described it as "Kyte just beat the s**t out of some guy." Everyone else agreed, and I've read the newspaper accounts from the Winnipeg and Vancouver outlets, and they were unanimous in calling it a clear cut win for Kyte. The Canucks released Crawford the next day.

The descriptions posted by others here are for a fight between Marc Crawford and Jim Kyte during a game on Jan. 7/86

We normally call a decisive win when the loser ends up in a hopeless situation - click here. From reading your review, it doesn't sound like Crawford was in a hopeless situation at the end.Reply

Yeah I think your right, I was wondering if it should be decisive or clear win when I was reviewing the fight. Now watching the fight again it looks more like just a clear win for Kyte because Crawford really wasn't in a hopeless situation. Thanks.Reply

Did you want to say that all these events happened not in this preseason game, but on Jan 7, 1986?

Sorry, I guess I wasn't clear enough. The descriptions posted by others here appear to be for the fight with Marc Crawford on Jan. 7, 1986.Reply

Thanks for clearing it up. sickboy12 reviewed both fights. If his review here describes the 1986 fight, I'm wondering which fight describes the review he posted there.Reply

Thanks for clearing that up whlfan. From the clip it didn't look like Marc Crawford but the sportscaster stated it was Crawford so I assumed it was Marc but it makes more sense it being Jeff being preseason and all.Reply

Hall speared Dale Hawerchuk, so Watters chased after Hall and tackled him into the corner. They wrestled around and not much else happened. And of course, the refs missed the spear job.
