Yeah definitely. Steamboat was real nice but it honestly isn't my favorite Colorado town. You might wanna check out Estes Park and Telluride, those places are even better IMO.

But he is still WAY too easy to hit, he's a punching bag and has no defense. He tries to do the things he used to do very well like head movement but he just doest have the reflexes to do that effectively anymore and he ends up getting nailed almost every time.

I think those body shots by Saleta is what did him in, you could see on Golota's face they were hurting him and caused him to tire as well. Plus he was pretty soft, Saleta looked damn ripped for a 45 year old.
Saleta looked like he had a good killer instinct. And he was in tremendous shape for 45 yrs old.

I'd like to see him fight Wlad, no shitting, I'm serious. He'd size up pretty well vs Wlad & if he throws bombs like he did vs Golota, who knows???

Back in the day after losing to Lewis, Grant, Tyson it was a very sad next couple of weeks. We had such high hopes/expectations for him. These days ya just kinda shrug it off but it still hurts my heart.


Ultimately, following Golota's career and being such a big fan over all was very disappointing. He could have gone so much further in his prime (and without the car accident). But it was still a fun ride and he gave us some very exciting moments. I highly doubt any boxer (or any sportsman for that matter) will give me the kind of rush Golota gave me. The Bowe fights, Corey Sanders fight, the Pouha fight, Nicholson fight, The Grant knock downs, the Byrd fight, the Mollo fight, the ring walks, the week before a Golota fight, the crowd chants of "Andrzej!!!". There is just nothing else like it.
1st time I ever seen of heard of Andrew Golota.

"Night of Upcoming HW's" (was it HBO or USA Network?) & there he was...built like a Sherman Tank & from POLAND! You gotta be kidding me! I'm thinking, does this guy know how to throw punches or is he some Euro bum?

It didn't take long before I knew this guy good rumble as a HW. Huge, nimble, beautiful punching technique, damn! He had it all.

Including a minor flaw that was apparent the moment he bit P'Houha on the neck!

With the exception of being rocked in the 3rd and poor conditioning, I thought Golota schooled Saleta.

I don't know about that man. The thing of it is, once he got winded he took a decently bad beating from what I recall. You can see "that look in his eyes". All Golotaholics know the look.

I have to rewatch it again at some point.

What I remember most is Golota looked 50x better than I was expecting, but my expectations were extremely low.

"Night of the Young Heavyweights", I think.

Tua blasted Ruiz, Briggs was upset by someone, and Golota fought Doc, then a highly regarded Emanuel Steward protege.

I'm not especially interested in seeing him fight Wlad. Maybe if he beat someone a couple of steps up from Andrew. I mean I agree with how you started - he showed good killer instinct (combined with good patience) and he truly is in absolutely amazing shape for his age.

But Wlad is leagues above everyone right now, and there are quite a few guys in between Golota and Wlad that I believe would beat Saleta.

Wasn't Oliver McCall calling out Saleta again after he beaT Andrew?

Briggs was upset by my namesake, Darroll "Doin' Damage" Wilson.

haaaa, my favourite thread! Several weeks ago I read an interview with Golota's wife and she said that Andrew retires. Nowadays he helps his son with tennis career.
