    Lyle is too tough, both mentally and physically for Golota.

    Golota had good skills and I could see him jumping out to a lead. But, I think Lyle would catch up to him in the end.

    Golota was better imo, but he was one of a few fighter who managed to lose his biggest fights.

    I think Lyle would break him mentally (by accident) and win by stoppage

    Lyle is the Tua of the 70’s! If Golota keeps his head he should have an easy nights work! Lyle’s only hope is for Golota to DQ himself!

    Lyle by ko. We'll take the best version of Golota, throw him in with a mauling beast like lyle and at some point Andrew's getting kod.
    Golota can look good for a while, he showed he could be against a shot Bowe and then later against Ruiz, so maybe he wins a few rounds before Ron starts breaking him down.
    Lyle stops him around the 8 th. I can actually see AG not coming out from his corner to face anymore of big Ron.

    I’ll go with Lye to not become Golota’s first victim with a top 10 ranking.

    I'll give Golota the benefit of the doubt and say that Lyle beats him by UD.

    Lyle would not take any of Golota's crap. Ron over Andrew by 8th round kayo.

    Golota was a real puzzle. Big with excellent fundamentals and good power but goodness knows what went on between his ears.
    Lyle was way less talented but would not be dwarfed by Golota. Ron was strong, could punch and was very brave.
    Golota is going to streak into a lead here but as he sees the finishing line coming up the pressure is going to start getting to him. Whether he fouls out or whether he ties up and starts to gas you can bet that Ron will be right in front of him and punching back.
    In a 10 rounder I pick Lyle by stoppage in the 9th or last.

    Lyle was less talented? I think ron was a fine fighter, golato was good too, but slow, Lyle would beat him up

    Lyle both scares and knocks the hell out of Golota in 5 rounds.

    I actually thought Golota had deceptively fast hands from like 1995-97. By 99 when he faced Grant, his hand quickness had steeply declined, and by 2004 when he faced Byrd and Ruiz, his hand speed had deteriorated much further. By the time he faced Mike Mollo, he was ridiculously slow, both of hand and foot.

    But during that stretch within a year either way of the Bowe fights, I always thought Golota had very fast hands, and decent speed and agility when it came to his feet. I also think he was, generally speaking, more skilled (and more athletic) than Lyle.

    But despite all of that, I have to say Lyle's mental strength and determination would probably win the day.
