I remember in the late 90s there were a lot of boxing fans who wanted to see Golota vs Maskaev. The Klitschos were still relatively unknown so Golota and Maskaev were the only two eastern European fighters making noise in the division. I always had the 90s version of Golota beating Oleg with relative ease with Golota's superior skills at that time via late stoppage or decision. Oleg had one hell of a hard right hand so he could have hurt Golota but Golota had one hell of a good chin back then. It would have been an interesting match up at the time.
But these days I think Golota might struggle in a Golota vs Jack Basting rematch.
