Even in that last fight vs Boogaard, I don't think he got his ass kicked. I think he was overmatched, the size difference between them in that fight looks ridiculous. And Carkner ended up a bloody mess when he fought Gillies. The Leblond fight in the NHL (only time I saw them fight) was pretty even to me..

And just to show my work:

I wouldn't classify that as getting your ass kicked.
I wasn't the one who said Gillies always gets his ass kicked by the best fighters in the league. Boogaard clearly beat him in 05/06. Beat him again in 2010, although not nearly as unanimous. That fight with Leblond was a draw at best for Gillies.

Gillies is a legit heavyweight, no doubt about it, but there are better fighters. What he's doing in the KHL is a joke. He's making a total coward out of himself.

Gillies isn't a punching bag like Stortini or Kostopoulos. He's not the heavyweight champ some make him out to be.
