Senchenko a Possible Opponent for Salita?

Dmitriy Salita's possible bout with Ismael El Massoudi still has not materialized. Salita (33-1-1, 17 KOs), a welterweight, told Ian Aldous that the entire process with El Massoudi has been "frustrating."

Salita explained, "I signed a contract to fight him after scheduling several dates at MSG and thinking that the fight would happen, he has not committed and it does not look like that fight will take place."

Instead, Salita said he would like to fight the WBA titist Vyacheslav Senchenko (32-0, 21 KOs). Senchenko has had problems securing a fight with Paulie Malignaggi.

So Salita sees a fight with Senchenko has a way to solve both of their problems. He also asserted that he's willing to travel to Ukraine for the potential bout. Senchenko lives in Ukraine and Salita was born there.


  1. Looks like Malignaggi will take the fight in Ukraine with Senchenko after all.

  2. Malignaggie is a good fight for Dmitriy
