Latest Sports News Ice Hockey Fight Battle of the Hockey

Latest Sports News Ice Hockey Fight Battle of the Hockey. The fledgling combat sports league “Ice War” will pit ice Hockey players against each other in the arena next month. But instead of scoring goals, the goal is to knock your opponents down.

“I call it a prize fight on the ice because no hockey is played at the end of the day. No sticks, no pucks, no nets. So yes, it’s complete hockey equipment, and most will be hockey players by now. But it’s a fight a gift with a wallet on the phone.” said Ice Wars president AJ Galante As a teenager, Galante’s father appointed him general manager of the now-defunct Danbury Trashers. A minor league team so ruthless and controversial that last year it was the subject of the Netflix documentary “Untold: Crime and Penalties”.

He’s moved into boxing and says a lot of interest in innovative combat sports from boxing to pillow fighting has made headlines recently. And made him believe that the time was right to launch his passion project. A fight will consist of two one-minute rounds with a 30-second “ice breaker” if the fighters split the rounds. Fighters will wear 4-ounce MMA gloves and cannot intentionally remove their opponent’s helmet. But if it comes off as a result of a great hit, its “play continues,” Galante said. The concept originated in the “Battle of the Hockey Enforcers,” an event held in British Columbia in 2005 and served as the inspiration for Ice Wars. Iceman Daniel Amesbury said he was eager to showcase his talent.

“While it sounds crazy, this is something that has always been on my mind. Six months ago, I told a friend of mine that it’s a shame that there isn’t a sport where I can take advantage of this unique skill I have. And I don’t know if I made it happen or not. What happened? It wasn’t long before it finally happened, and I’m excited,” Amesbury said. While no National Hockey League (NHL) players are expected to participate, Amesbury is preparing for stiff competition from players competing in the American Hockey League (AHL) as well as mid-level leagues such as the ECHL and LNAH. He said the length of the fight would guarantee non-stop action.

“The average hockey fight is probably under 20 seconds. So a minute is a long fight. It’s a lot of action. There will be a lot of punches thrown in, and there will be a lot of blood. It’s going to be fun, guys” he said. Ice Wars will debut with the eight-man ‘King of the Rink’ heavyweight tournament in Edmonton on May 21. It will be broadcast on FITE.
