Salita Signs to Fight El Massoudi, Hatton Objects

According to an article by Ian Aldous for Boxing News 24, Dmitriy Salita (33-1-1, 17 KOs) has signed a contract to fight Ismael El Massoudi (36-3, 14 KOs), who holds an interim world title strap.

However, Matthew Hatton has attempted to usurp Salita by negotiating directly with El Massoudi. Salita has formally objected to the actions of Hatton and Hatton Promotions.

El Massoudi, who is from Morocco, defeated Souleymane M'baye this past July for the interim belt when M'baye's knee gave out with under a minute left in the contest. Salita's last fight was an eight round decision over Ronnie Warrior in April.


  1. If Salita gets the fight,hopefully some Meyer Lansky types will learn something from Salita's last performance in front of Islamic "fans"-and do
    a professional job regarding mob control..

  2. Yeah, hopefully any taunts will be directed at the individual and not towards the group in which he belongs.
