27.04.05 - By Jim Amato: We are being led to believe that on May 21st in Chicago there will be a contest for the heavyweight championship of the world. Jack, Joe and Rocky must be spinning in their graves! On that date Lamon Brewster will defend his bogus W.B.O. heavyweight title against long time challenger Andrew Golota.. Many in the boxing community feel that Golota will emerge victorious. Many thought that Andrew did enough to beat I.B.F. titleholder Chris Byrd and W.B.A. pretender John Ruiz. Poor Andrew fell just short in those matches.
This will be Andrew's fourth crack at the crown. Lennox Lewis derailed him in his first attempt. Let's say that Golota beats Brewster. That win along with his close battles with Byrd and Ruiz could make a strong case for Golota being the best heavyweight around today. Vitali included?
Think about this, Andrew Golota. This is the same fighter who looked like a deer in the headlights against Lennox Lewis. The same Andrew Golota who was savaged by mean old Mike Tyson. Hell he even lost to Michael Grant!
Now tell me, how are we supposed to take this seriously?
