Saleta Says Don't Call Golota Showdown a Comeback

By Per Ake Persson

Polish heavyweight veteran Przemyslaw Saleta, and 48-7 as a professional fighter, is in full training for his showdown against Andrew Golota, 41-8-1, in Gdansk on February 22.

"It΄s not a comeback," insists the 43-year old who had his last fight in 2006. "It is however a farewell fight but I never retired. I΄m always in training and had a K 1 fight last year and a MMA fight in the year before that. But let's face it, boxing is a young man's sport and for me this is my final fight."
 
Saleta kept mixing kickboxing with boxing throughout his long career where he turned pro back in 91 as a cruiser. He won the EBU heavyweight title in 2002 by stopping German star Luan Krasniqi in a huge upset but lost the title to Sinan Samil Sam and was then stopped in one by Krasniqi in a rematch.
 
Saleta and Golota know each other well having sparred together on a few occasions and have been scheduled to fight twice before but it fell through when Golota pulled out due to injuries. -It will be fun, says Saleta, the money counts too but I do it mainly for the fun of it and I am convinced I can win.
