Gold's picture

This was a big statement fight for Lewis. Golota was considered a top fighter outside of his mental issues and he really worked Bowe in the second fight. I think Lewis was only a 6-5 favorite versus Golota even considering his issues which was a testament to how highly people thought of Golota at the time. The HBO broadcasters were even discussing how Golota had the better jab and one of the best jabs at heavyweight, which is insane to think about with hindsight that Golota would have a better jab than Lewis. Lewis just drove straight through Golota, perfect display of accuracy, power, and finishing ability. I think this fight is a microcosm of what Lewis can do at his peak. I think this fight scared Bowe off of fighting Lewis by dominating Golota so easily which is a pretty big knock against Bowe, but it set Lewis up to fight Holyfield.
