In their prime I would love to have seen Probert, Kocur, or Stu Grimson take him on.
For comedy reason I would have also love to see Tie Domi give him a go.


Oh and for people in the league now that could take him.... Sean Avery!!!

Yes, I was quite impressed. I believe the fight ended up being a draw.

Funny, because Boogard would probably one of the best fighters of all time if he could stay on his feet for longer than 3 seconds

Everybody always forgets about Tony Twist.... He was a monster... Check out this awesome compilation:



I had to watch it twice...

Twist vs. Ray



Here's his HBO Real Sports feature :



Now this guy was seriously skilled at fighting.... Heavy weight like this would have no problem going up against a player like Chara who is HUGE but has no where near the same skill level at when it comes to fighting...

Chad LaRose. I've seen him scuffle with Chara on a couple of occasions. I've also seen him lay a nice check on Chara.

oh well. every whistle there would be a pile, and it was always worrell's head sticking about a foot higher than the rest, and always, someone would throw a punch at it.

Never failed.

I'd say Stu "The Reaper" Grimson would knock his ass out.

Kyle Wellwood (Man Possessed Form) can take him on and obliterate him.

Fedor Emelianenko, Brock Lesnar, Shane Carwin, a lion, a tiger, a shark, Big Show and probably at least a thousands other guys and million of other animals and myself can probably kick Chara ass in a fight.

Chara hasn't really fought a prime heavy wieght, BGL and Huggy Bear were on the begining decline at the time, and Chara went for the take down right a way against BGL, once he fights a prime heavy, if he can find one, and not bail and go for the take down, we should have this conversation.

You guys do realize that Chara's dad was an Olympic wrestler, right?

If there was anyone Chara couldn't go toe-to-toe with, he could just wrestle them to the ground. Good luck beating Zdeno in a fight.

Just because he takes someone down in a fight doesn't make him the winner. He can take a couple shots to the mellon and wrestle the guy down like a sissy...he loses.

Since the lockout he hasn't really lost a fight. Draws against Laraque and Brashear. Technically a draw against Artyukhin as well, but if Artyukhin didn't have a visor it would have been a big win for Chara.

I agree that any take down to stop the punches from hitting him should be considered a win for the other guy. Thing is, I don't think he's really losing the fight most of the times he takes a guy down. Maybe he's scared he's about to lose it?

I'd say a draw for sure. It was a pretty quick affair, too many players and too much gear around for them to have a good bout. That's the closest Artyukhin has ever come to a loss, Chara is definitely a bad matchup for anyone.
