Amateur Highlights

Professional Record


  • After marrying in 1990 Golota immigrated to Chicago where he intended to look for work as a truck driver. An immigration official guided him to a gym.
  • As he notched up a succession of wins he altered his style from that of an upright "European" approach to more of a puncher, suiting his natural power.
