Salita Has New Opponent

Dmitriy Salita, who is promoting and fighting a card scheduled for April 13 at the Oceana Ballroom in Brooklyn, New York, will have a new opponent. Salita is now penciled in to face Ronnie Warrior Jr.

Salita (32-1-1, 17 KOs) was originally scheduled to face Jermaine White. White's replacement, Warrior (13-4-1, 4 KOs), is cut from the same mold. Warrior is a journeyman who has built up a record against weak foes and lost when battling tougher competition. Warrior is older at 34 years old, but has fought more recently than White has. Warrior was stopped in the third round last December against Kevin Bizier.

Warrior has historically been the heavier man than Salita. The Oklahoma native is also a southpaw. Regardless, Salita is the prohibitive favorite. The bout is scheduled for eight rounds.
