Golota has dispelled the notion that white fighters can't beat black
fighters.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Spare me your United Nations speech.

You know as well as I do, this question has long been a source of carping,
cater-walling, and out-right denial ever since Dempsey made a career out
of avoiding black fighters.

Anyway, since Golota has settled this question, not once, but twice; the
second question is how in the *** did he get so good? You gotta wonder
who in the hell did he have to work with over there in Warsaw? Bowe was
fighting top amateurs at 16. Tyson spared regularly with Jose Torres et al
at 14. So who was Golota working with?

Really, what were his training methods? Can someone provide this kind of
background stuff?

My point with all of the above is this -- We need to break down and try to
find out why Golota is so good. This is the job before us, not penning
endless posts about his dirty tactics. Hell, a guy from a different planet
comes here and beats us humans at our own game; a guy like this, you make
allowances for.

        Too bad you had to start out with this preamble.  Your post was almost
intelligent.

        Only as sales hype (just ask Don King).

        Don't know about how good he is - actually seems rather limited to me.
However, he had the same opportunities to box nationally and internationally in
the amateurs as did any boxer from any country.  I am making the assumption,
however (and Paul L. can correct me if need be), that he came from the old
European "straight up" style school of boxing which does not lend itself well to
pro fighting.  My impression is that he not a well-rounded fighter, that he just
works off the one-punch power shots.  He certainly does not know how to throw
combinations and/or body shots.  As with the pros, most amateur heavyweights are
sorely lacking in real skills and speed and usually dominate through how hard
they can punch in clubbing and slapping overhand rights and other such one-punch
shots.

        I am sure they were not much different than any training any amateur
goes through, except for the style.

        We do?  I think this has been done ad nauseam since the 14th.  It is
really all speculation unless his amateur trainer comes forth and posts words of
wisdom on r.s.b.  Hee hee.  He'll probably tell you Golota was untrainable as,
I'm afraid, Duva is finding out.

I have trained both in Poland and in the United States as an amataur.
There are differences in the exercises done between the two places.
You must remember that Poland was part of the former Soviet block,
and that high emphasis was placed on sports in general.

Andrew was a bronze medalist in the 1988 Olimpics. Retired on a cut.

I can forsee Andrzej becoming a champion.
       a.) must work on his impulsivness to faul during a fight
       b.) more defensive work he still gets hit to much

Outside the ring Andrzej is a great guy as is high wife.
They have a very lovely little girl.

Is that to say that 'Andrew' is an ape, or the opponents he has faced to
date are apes?
