Gone in 53 seconds
Lamon Brewster showed his vicious side and made quick work of Andrew Golota.
The WBO heavyweight champion scored a technical knockout 53 seconds
into the scheduled 12-round bout Saturday night at the United Center.
"I felt I needed to prove that you can be a nice guy, but at the same time, you can be a fighter," said Brewster, who has been criticized for not
Brewster knocked down Golota three times with thunderous left hooks, the first coming 13 seconds into the bout. After Golota got up, Brewster
continued to attack and knocked the challenger between the second and third ropes.
Brewster (32-2, 28 knockouts) landed a series of punches and ended the fight with another left hook that dropped Golota for the third time.
It was a quick end to the bout, and, possibly, Golota's career. The 37-year-old Golota (38-6-1, 31 KOs) said he would retire if he didn't win.
