Full clip, do you wanna mess with this/POLISH BOXING, one of the best yet/I'm nice like that/It's all good, in this business of rep - check out this Polish boxing revolver, inspired by Gang Starr's lyrics. It's 1895 Nagant, seven-shot devil produced for Russian Empire, used also by Polish army. These bullets hurt.
1. Stanley Ketchel (Stanislaw Kiecal) - named by Ring magazine as number six among boxing's all time best punchers. James Carlos Blake wrote a novel about him - The Killings Of Stanley Ketchel.
2. Marian Kasprzyk - one of the hardest hitting welterweights ever. So what he was an amateur.
3. Henryk Srednicki - huge puncher who was loved by Fidel Castro for his gung-ho style. Flyweight Tyson.
4. Zbigniew Pietrzykowski - the only man to knock out Laszlo Papp. Watch his fight against Clay AGAIN.
5. Jerzy Kulej - best all around Polish boxer, two-time Olympic gold medalist. Knocking out people for fun.
6. Andrew Golota - mentally flawed but very skillful. His jab's power was something else and he was precise with it.
7. Artur Szpilka - rare combination of puncher's instinct and great reflexes. Better believe that he's the future heavyweight king
Tomasz Adamek was excluded - he's great but too famous at the moment. Leszek Drogosz's even greater but he was a pure technician. Dariusz Michalczewski's career's well known and respected. This clip is loaded with punchers who don't get enough worldwide recognition. I encourage foreign readers to research these bullets' biographies. Time to raise the stakes again.
Sam Colonna, trainer of Polish heavyweight star Andrew Golota (41-8-1, 33 KOs), confirms that his boxer has resumed training. For some time now, there has been talk of a farewell fight in Poland. The 43-year-old boxer has not fought since a fifth round TKO loss to Tomasz Adamek in October 2009. Colonna says it's too early to tell if Golota remains mentally focused on having another fight.
- We have not made any decisions. Andrew is in the gym training. When he really start training seriously, then we can talk about comebac fight. I can not dictate what Andrew does. Andrew is in pretty good shape. He is not too heavy. He weighs around 245 pounds - Colonna said.
Polish heavyweight legend Andrew Golota arrived in Poland today. Golota will face countryman IBF cruiserweight champion Tomasz Adamek in the Polish “Fight of the Century” on October 24 in Lodz.
Andrew Golota is entering his fourth week of training in Chicago ahead of his heavyweight clash with Tomasz Adamek on October 24 in Lodz, Poland. Golota suffered multiple tendon tears near his left bicep during the first round of his last fight against Ray Austin in November during a bout staged in Chengdu, China. He had surgery to correct the injury in May and says the recovery has gone well. "So far, so good with my elbow," Golota said.
"Right now, I have no special problems with it, just the usual pain when you hit the bag. This is a normal part of boxing."
The press conference to announce the Polish “fight of the century” between Andrew Golota and Tomasz Adamek was held in Warsaw today. “Adamek invited me to dance, so I could not well refuse,” the evidently relaxed Golota (41), four-time challenger for the heavyweight championship of the world, was saying about the October event. “One shouldn’t really box at my age, I’d rather be 12-13 years younger. Still, Bernard Hopkins is 44, so I still have everything ahead of me.” Adamek seemed more tightly wound. “I was always a warrior, and shall remain a warrior. If anything changes about that, I’ll be quitting this business. I’m going to win against Golota, and I’m going to win against Hopkins next January,” the IBF junior heavyweight champion announced. “Yeah, sure!,” was Golota’s ironic riposte. “I weigh in at 270 pounds, but at my age you usually gain weight. Adamek is a regular powerhouse, weighing in at as much as 200 pounds…”
According to several independent and reliable sources, a Polish “Fight of the Century” between four time heavyweight title challenger Andrew Golota and current IBF cruiserweight champion Tomasz Adamek will take place in October in Poland. The fight reportedly is not a done deal yet, but the negotiations are advanced with both Adamek and Golota willing to fight and satisfied with the financial offer.
