Photos: Saleta Knocks Out Andrew Golota in Polish War

Before a sold out crowd at the Ergo Arena in Poland, an all-Polish nostalgic heavyweight encounter took place, as 44-year old Przemyslaw Saleta (44-7, 22 KOs) returned to the ring after seven years of retirement and stopped 45-year old Andrew Golota (41-9-1, 33 KOs) in the sixth round of a very brutal slugfest. Golota was coming off more than a four year layoff himself. The two boxers traded big punches until Saleta overwhelmed Golota in the sixth round and sent him down for the full count of ten.
Golata threw quite a high volume of punches for a heavyweight of any age and moved pretty good...they both did. I enjoyed this fight and for a 45 year old he looked pretty good. The finish was weird...he got hit…Comment by Ray Corso on 02-24-2013
