More on the Salita/Hatton Controversy

Dmitiry Salita signed a contract with Ismael El Massoudi's promoter, but Matthew Hatton has signed a contract to fight El Massoudi as well. Both Salita and Hatton are looking to compete for El Massoudi's interim belt in what they perceive to be a winnable fight.

Mitch Abramson of BoxingScene.com reports that the Salita fight was tentatively scheduled for January at Madison Square Garden. If Hatton gets the fight, March is the target, likely in Europe.

The sanctioning body that gives out the interim belt is meeting in the near future in the hopes of finding a solution to the dilemma.
