Salita’s big punch date

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport -

DMITRIY Salita’s fight against WBA light-wel­ter­weight cham­pion Amir Khan will take place in New­cas­tle on De­cem­ber 5.

Khan’s first ti­tle de­fence will be held at the Metro Ra­dio Arena against Salita, 27, the WBA manda­tory chal­lenger, who said: “I see things in Khan’s style that I can take ad­van­tage of, but, ob­vi­ously, I’m not go­ing to talk about them.”

Pro­moter Frank War­ren said: “For Amir’s first de­fence this is a very tough fight for him and he’s tak­ing on a fighter that the Amer­i­can me­dia are re­ally build­ing up at the mo­ment.

“Salita’s got a great record, he’s un­beaten and car­ries a big punch and of course he will pose a threat to Amir, but Amir’s a world-class fighter and has to deal with th­ese chal­lengers.”
