One last step in the evolution from hockey to boxing. Why watch players plinking around with sticks and goals when you can cut out all the crap and just watch fights? Coming soon on pay-per-view... Battle of the Hockey Gladiators. "Some of the meanest guys in hockey" fighting in full gear at center ice (according to their promo crap in the June 2004 issue of Amusement Business). Fights last 90 seconds, and apparently each fight starts with a puck being dropped, although it's not clear whether the pucks will be used for anything other than timekeeping symbol.

From the FAQ, we see that judges score gladiators on:
- amount of punches thrown and landed
- quality of punches
- showmanship
- crowd response
- general control of the fight
- whos knees buckle first
