Salita arrives in Newcastle

Undefeated mandatory World Boxing Association No. 1 contender Damitriy “Star of David” Salita arrived today in Newcastle where he challenges super lightweight champion Amir Khan at the Metro Radio Arena on Saturday, Dec. 5. The bout is available in the U.K.via pay-per-view telecast and is being promoted by Frank Warren Promotions in association with Square Ring Promotions and is being distributed by Sky Sports. Salita, 30-0-1 (14 KOs), stayed and trained yesterday in London and was anxious to continue his training at the site. Khan, 21-1 (15 KOs), will be making the first defense of the crown he captured by defeating Andriy Kotelnik over the distance on July 18 in Manchester. “I’m happy to be in the United Kingdom and arriving in Newcastle on Thanksgiving,” said the 27-year old Salita. “I’ve been patient but it’s my chance to shine and bring the title back to the States. I’ve had a long hard camp and am well prepared.”
