Salka signs with Golden Boy

WBA #15 lightweight “Lightning” Rod Salka (18-2) of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has signed a multi-fight, multi-year, exclusive promotional contract with Golden Boy Promotions. Undefeated in the last year, Salka has won 3 straight including a 5th round stoppage over former IBF title challenger Emmanuel Lucero (26-13)for the NABA-US Lightweight Title. Last month, Salka successfully defended his NABA strap via a wide 10 round unanimous decision over Ryan Belasco (18-5-3). In the first fight under his new promotional banner, “Lightning” Rod will step up in weight to face WBA #11 Ricardo Alvarez (22-2-3) over 10 rounds for Alvarez’ WBC Continental-Americas 140 pound title at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday December 14th. A native of Guadalajara, Mexico, Ricardo Alvarez is the brother of former WBC/WBA champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-1). The Alvarez-Salka bout will be a part of the packed Broner-Maidana Showtime telecast.
