Golota vs Saleta Will Go Forward on February 23rd


According to recent reports, four-time heavyweight world title challenger Andrew Golota (41-8-1, 33 KOs) will return to the ring on February 23rd at Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland. The Pole, who is widely-known for his two bouts against Riddick Bowe, will face his countryman and former European champion Przemyslaw Saleta (43-7, 21 KOs), who also had competed as a kickboxer, MMA and K-1 fighter. It’s going to be a farewell fight for the two almost 45-year old Polish veterans. The event which will include five more boxing bouts, will be televised in Poland on “Polsat” channel via pay-per-view system.

Golota has been inactive since his 5th round TKO loss to Tomasz Adamek in October of 2009. Saleta’s last boxing fight took place in February of 2006 when he beat inexperienced American Ed Perry by unanimous decision.

The first press conference promoting this event will be held on January 7th at the Marriott Hotel in Warsaw.

Saleta hasn't fought in more than six years and hasn't won a meaningful fight in more than decade. Sounds like a bumfight.

[QUOTE=chocolate;12868890]Re watch that Golota vs Adamek fight, Golota has nothing in the tank and that was nearly 4 years ago Adamek destroyed him in 5 rounds. The boxing commission needs to step in and revoke the licence.[/QUOTE] True....but he's fighting…
