2005-05-21 Lamon Brewster w rsc 1 Andrew Golota, United Centre, Chicago, Illinois, USA - WBO. Referee: Genaro Rodriguez. The champion came out fast, throwing big punches, and within ten second he had Golota (248) down with a cracking left hook and although the Pole got up at ‘five’ moments later he was dropped again by a similar punch. Again, Golota was up at ‘five’, but looking in poor condition after yet another solid left hook to the temple from Brewster (224) sent him crashing to the floor. Getting up in a groggy condition, it was obvious that Golota could not continue and the referee stopped the fight with just 53 seconds on the clock.
