Spirited draw

Great scrap. Well done by Malone to use his aggression after being put down to come back strong. Gave it to Malone, but wanted to vote draw.

Everybody is talking about Adams' lip being from the night before, I was at the game, his entire forehead was split open, he got dominated in this fight, they showed it on the jumbotron, just not in this replay, it wasn't even close. Malone for a very rare but clear decisive win.

Shows where hockey has gone to to have to dig so deep to keep this site going

Noo no he means K. Adams and C. Adams on Carolina back in da day like almost 10 years ago. Ja? :o Malone win with his hammering left hooks that, clearly need to be used to start his next fight.

Give the split decision to Malone for his strong finish.

Posted by medicdrummer on October 12, 2013 at 10:12 PM

Adams early, Malone late. The cut on Adams lip was from last nights game against Florida.

Good go by both guys. Its a draw.

Posted by JBox03 on October 15, 2013 at 03:40 PM

Nice little scrap to start the game. Adams really connected with the right, but it only seemed to wake Malone up. Bugsy dominated the the fight after that.

Posted by Amerkfan8 on October 13, 2013 at 01:32 PM

Adams at the start, Malone at the end. This is not something you see a ton from both guys. I call it a draw.

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on October 15, 2013 at 06:41 PM

not bad

Posted by fernben8 on October 13, 2013 at 04:03 AM

This is the best fight for Adams in long time... If I may respectfully nit pick Adams a little....I feel he's got to look and zero in more on his target rather than just throwing in the general direction. He dropped Malone to his knees but benefit of the doubt got lucky with his technique ? Giving slightest edge to Malone, even though he gave the upper-cut when Adams was on his knees.

Pretty damn good fight, couldn't decide and gave em a draw. Malone looks like he is twice the size of Adams.

Posted by DARCY T on October 13, 2013 at 09:48 AM

props to adams.he is awful fighter.he knows that but despite of that he fought a guy 4 inches taller.and malone was in trouble for a moment after one of his rights.adams could have finished him there imo but malone recovered and it was all malone after that...win malone malone is quite active after 0 fm in last season

Posted by srehm1 on October 13, 2013 at 05:45 PM

Good spirited scrap with Malone taking the W.

Posted by Behn Wilson on October 12, 2013 at 09:05 PM

Adams early on with the right followed by Malone coming on late with the left Draw-ish Remember when there were actually two Craig Adams? Or were there??? Lol I wonder what happened to the other one

Posted by sedinfan on October 13, 2013 at 01:37 PM

That was a fun one, sometimes these middleweights are more fun to watch than the hugger big boys like Konopka.

Posted by GreatMurray on October 15, 2013 at 09:01 AM

Good fight...Malone is still a tough guy...he gets hurt too often. Adams gets dominated.

Posted by TrueHockeyFan79 on October 13, 2013 at 10:04 PM

Adams started well but took a beating late.

Posted by kardiokicker on October 14, 2013 at 09:40 AM

Really good uppercuts with both the right and the left from Bugsy!

Posted by boldbilly on October 13, 2013 at 12:27 AM

Adams early then Malone took it home .....slight edge Malone.....nice fight

Posted by sndaysnipr on October 12, 2013 at 10:42 PM

Adams rocked Malone to his knee early but missed with a wild hammer and got thumped for it. The busted lip was already there so nothing new.

Posted by saapgh on October 12, 2013 at 08:03 PM

Love Craig Adams' heart...but I don't think he's ever won a fight that I can remember. Giving away a lot of size, he hung in gamely for a while before absorbing a beating. I remember when Malone was in Pgh, he was taking boxing lessons.

Posted by cible on October 13, 2013 at 12:02 AM

Pretty funny that, when you see Craig Adams name, you know it's a lost on his part. You don't even have to watch the fight, you could just vote for the other guy. Can't remember the last time he came out victorious in the fisticuffs. Adams was even surprised at the start by his performance but you just knew the suckiness would come out on top. Just the type of opposition Malone usually lets his glove drop against!!!

Posted by nait on October 12, 2013 at 09:42 PM

Adams had it till he missed with the wild right

Posted by bajo39 on October 13, 2013 at 10:06 AM

God these staged fights are awful, do absolutely nothing to ump up the teams. Really feel sorry for the fans who had to watch it...

Looks like Malone caught a hard shot at :17, then Adams stumbles and Malone goes for revenge. Hey BEHN WILSON, I assume your goin' back over 20 years and referring to the dual GREG ADAMS. lol Good times.

Posted by nbecc1 on October 13, 2013 at 10:54 AM

Malone worked him and landed some good lefts Easy win for Malone

Posted by LightningDogg on October 13, 2013 at 09:16 AM

Really??? A draw??? Close?? After some ineffective flailing by both, Adams got the first punch in, then he must have been feeling confident cuz Bugsy treated him to a steady diet of fist sandwich with a side of knuckles (as Dingman so eloquently put it). Witness him in the box wiping blood off his mouth and a nice big knot on his head. So the lip happened last night..... was it bleeding for 24 hours?? More likely it was from that uppercut. Malone's best fight in 3 years, give him some credit. The Bolts have a fight in all 5 games so far, with 3 in the first game. This is the first one that was pre-determined ( you wanna go?) as all the rest were guys sticking up for themselves or their teammates. I like Cooper's team so far.

adams took a beating

Posted by SouthPaw017 on October 14, 2013 at 02:31 AM

Moses Malone takes it over the member of the Adams family....

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on October 14, 2013 at 01:08 AM

Malone punished Adams! That was a pretty solid beating at the end.

Posted by KingNothing on October 13, 2013 at 12:14 AM

Give it up Malone.

Posted by staceyb on October 13, 2013 at 07:59 AM

All heart that Craig Adams. But the heavily tattooed Malone really tattooed him at the end. The Dinger lives! I need to start watching more of the Bolts telecasts.
