This past weekend, 41-year-old Andrew Golota was TKO’d in five rounds by Tomasz Adamek, who moved up from cruiserweight for the big fight in Lodz, Poland. Golota has now dropped four of his last seven bouts – including three stoppages – but is unlikely to retire.

Elsewhere, Oliver McCall, 44, scored a ten-round unanimous decision over Lance Whitaker, 37 in Las Vegas, and Frans Botha, 41, fought to a majority draw against Pedro Carrion, 39, in Dessau, Germany.

43-year-old “King of the Four Rounders”, Eric “Butterbean” Esch, recently returned to the ring after more than two-and-a-half years and lost a four-round split decision to 46-year-old Harry Funmaker, who hadn’t fought in nearly four years! After the bout, Butterbean announced his retirement. Don’t believe it …

Other past-their-prime heavyweights preparing for upcoming bouts include John Ruiz (37), Hasim Rahman (36), Michael Grant (37) and Oleg Maskaev (40). See complete schedule for details.
