He was funny, though. But yeah, he was on Golota's case, but I still found the whole segment hysterical.

Golota honestly looked he didn't have a ****ing care in the world.

Strangely enough, his confidence was probably at an all time high right after that first Bowe fight.

Spot on Rums. This was when Golota had the 28-0 with 25 KOs and he just beat the crap out of the man deemed the biggest and baddest HW during that time. THe name Riddick Bowe didnt mean jack to him. Only after the Lewis fight did he begin to have confidence issues. But remember, he had a grand mal seizure minutes after the bout. Gotta wonder how that may have played a role in his affecting his confidence there after.

You probably heard about it from me, I've been promising those at the Ultimate Golota Express to upload this video for years.

Exactly. He was roughing up everyone in his path, and everything he had skill-wise all peaked that night--the jab, the right, the left hook, the combos, the body shots (the legal ones), and the elusive upper body and head movement. After the beating he administered on Bowe, despite the DQ, he must have been feeling really good about his future.

Good point on the seizure, but I actually think Golota's confidence was affected tremendously even before the Lewis fight. I think the entire aftermath of the Bowe rematch mentally broke him in some way. He had made the same mistakes again, and this time he battered Bowe far worse. The problem was that Golota also absorbed a great deal of punishment in the rematch, far more than he underwent the first time. The entire build-up to that rematch, Duva and Bloodworth were stressing no low blows, even making Golota work on a heavybag that had trunks on it! And of course this continued right up until the final DQ with an animated Bloodworth exclaiming, "NO! MORE! BODY SHOTS!"

Golota had really blown it that time, and he also endured a lot of physical punishment. The shot that hit him in the ninth before the final low blow combo--I forget how long before the combo it was, but Golota had Bowe backed into the corner--big right hand as I recall, and Bowe didn't even realize he'd hurt Golota. That shot right there may have symbolically represented the end of Golota as we knew him.

Going into the Lewis fight nearly 10 months later, I think Golota battled a lot of demons and self-doubt over that 10 month duration.


One thing I always wonder is how Golota would have fared against Ray Mercer, whom he was originally slated to face following the two Bowe fights. One of them suffered a neck injury though. I forget who. May have been Andrew? Regardless, I think Golota could have beaten Mercer. I am not saying he would have, but Mercer ran hot and cold. Golota could have scored a big win in that one and restored some of his lost confidence after that second Bowe fight. Or who knows? Maybe Golota was destined to get ****ed up after those two Bowe fights no matter who he faced. Mercer was tough and would have been up for Andrew, and Ray had a great chin then. But Golota had all the physical advantages and was the superior athlete then.

Would have been interesting for sure.
