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.
Carkner may have had a nick on his ear, but that fight was a draw at best for Gillies. Carkner landed way more solid blows. Gillies hugged Carkner for the whole damn fight.
