    Well since the event below the belt Bowe stopped producing natural testosterone. He couldn’t be angry if he tried...

    It's actually sad, to me. A reminder of what boxing can do to the brain. Bowe absorbed a life-altering beating in those Golota fights. Perhaps the most heart I ever saw, from a guy who was labeled no heart in the amateurs. If he didn't have tremendous heart, toughness, grit, he would not have won those fights. Conversely, if he had taken the count or retired during those fights, his brain likely would be healthier today. He truly left major pieces of himself in the ring on those nights.

    Interested why you thought that was great to see. I thought it was horrible. Awkward at first with Golota looking quite disdainful of Bowe, rather than friendly, but then just awful, listening to Bowe try to talk.

    I don't really know why anyone would put that on Youtube other than to highlight Bowe's condition. Without adding any context on how he's doing, if anyone's helping him, was that a bad day? the clip, mercifully short which makes it even more pointless, was unpleasant.

    Golota keeping both his hands protectively in front of his privates throughout the face to face just in case Bowe decides to get some payback. Probably also wary of any old hangers-on from the past of Bowe’s holding cell phones. :watchout:

    Bowe looks in really bad shape nowadays, and Golota there did seem somewhat wary.

    I don't think Golota was the same after the Bowe fights either. Both those guys left major pieces of themselves in the ring, particularly in that second fight.

    In the 2nd round of there 2nd fight, i remember Bowe took one of the worst one sided beatings. I've ever witnessed a Heavyweight take, i believe Golota landed over 70 punches, which would be crazy for Featherweight to absorb let alone a 240 pound man doing it to you.

    Why does Golota look like Povetkin here?

    I know you are joking, but Bowe showed a great deal of anger mostly since that fight.
    And various legal problems regarding angry & erratic behavior.
