Golota Speaks on Valuev

19.12.05 - By Scoop Malinowski: Rumors persist that newly-crowned WBA Heavyweight king Nicolay Valuev may make his first title defense against former four-time title challenger Andrew Golota. Golota, who gave John Ruiz and Chris Byrd all they could handle and then some, in separate 2004 title fights but was caught cold earlier this year in one round by Lamon Brewster, seemed interested in the challenge, "It would be like fighting a mountain," said the contender who has kept himself in good condition by running, lifting weights and skiing..

Golota was not surprised Ruiz lost to the little-known but gigantic Russian. "Everybody's better than John Ruiz," said Golota, "But I hear Ruiz got robbed." Golota embarks on a weeklong family ski vacation in Colorado next week.
