Gołota-Saleta in 180 seconds of video action

By Przemek Garczarczyk

More than 14,000 screaming fans in ERGO Arena in Gdańsk (Poland), unbelievable buildup, emotions and surprisingly for many 45-year-old four-time heavyweight championship challenger Andrzej Gołota (41-9, 33 KOs) and 46-year-old former Euro-champ Przemek Saleta (44-7, 22 KOs) delivered big time. Even when you take into consideration their combined age of 90+, both fighters gave fans nonstop action, over 100 connected power punches in just six rounds and in the end, a thrilling KO delivered by Saleta, who shocked the nation by beating the much more heralded Gołota. Cyfrowy Polsat, the PPV arm of the biggest Polish private television network and dominant force in boxing broadcasting, Polsat TV, were the sole producers and promoters of this event. Their second Polsat Boxing Night, was an overwhelming success, combining a night of Polish boxing legends in the main event and the new wave of exciting, young fighters showing their skills before a big audience on national television.
