Hatton Won't Fight El Massoudi

BoxRec is reporting that Matthew Hatton will not fight interim beltholder Ismael El Massoudi. That should open the door for Dmitriy Salita to face El Massoudi, with a tentative location and date being New York's Madison Square Garden in January.

More on the controversy can be found here. A victory over El Massoudi (36-3, 14 KOs) would mark the biggest of Salita's career. El Massoudi won the belt when his opponent, Souleymane M'baye, suffered a knee injury in the final minute of their bout this past summer. Salita (33-1-1, 17 KOs) is looking to work his way back to the world scene after a disappointing loss to Amir Khan in 2009.
