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.
Maskaev did have the power to hurt Andrew, but Oleg was never especially quick. Golota definitely had better speed of both hand and foot, and I think he'd have been able to outjab Oleg and mostly avoid those right hands. Golota did have deceptively fast hands, once upon a time.

But these days I think Golota might struggle in a Golota vs Jack Basting rematch.

Wasn't that guy like 41 back when he fought Golota in like '98?
