Heck, Simon is listed at 232lbs. That's 17 more than Lapointe. As opposed to Gill, who is 6'7", 250 lbs. Now you moan about Lapointe being outweighed by 17 pounds and yet bemoan Matty who gives away 7 friggin' inches and 60 lbs? Come on.
Matty has a history to not backing down to ANYONE. Whereas Gill has a history of being a punching bag to those that anywhere near his size. Like I said, fighting Matty is about Gill's speed. Notice that he'll never tangle w/ the likes of Purinton or Simon.
I don't disagree...But believe me when I say that Barnaby had a lot better shot vs. Gill than Gill vs. Simon......Gill has fought Chara and Worrell though...but Simon would destroy him.
Lapointe is like Barnaby....He'll fight anyone, and he's really good at it, but probably not as good as Barnaby....
