Salita Getting Ready to Battle Camacho Jr.


New York’s most popular fighter, Dmitriy Salita is getting ready to battle Hector Camacho Jr. at Barclays Center. Dmitriy is gearing up for another world title shot and a win over Camacho Jr. on February 9 will move him one step closer. A decision winner over Brandon Hoskins at Barclays Center last October, the 30-year-old Dmitriy aims to keep his five fight-winning streak and his championship dreams alive with a win over Camacho Jr.

The son of the late, great "Macho" Camacho, Hector Camacho Jr. will undoubtedly be looking to leave an impression and score a victory in his father’s home city on February 9. The winner of 11 of his last 13 bouts, the 16-year veteran of the sport has been waiting for an opportunity like this in the Big Apple. In his first local bout since 2001, the 34-year-old from San Juan can’t wait to hear the bell ring.

"I love fighting in Brooklyn and to now face Hector Camacho Jr., another legendary New York name, the stakes will be extremely high on February 9," said Dmitriy. "I look forward to the opportunity and feel confident that I will be victorious that night."

"It is going to be an exciting, but very emotional night for me on February 9 when I fight at Barclays Center," said Camacho. "I am fighting for myself, but it will also be a tribute to my dad who was loved throughout all of New York. I plan to honor and represent the family name with a win of Dmitriy."

Dmitriy Salita vs. Hector Camacho Jr. will be televised on SHOWTIME Extreme, followed by the world title clash between Unified Super Lightweight Champion Danny "Swift" Garcia and Brooklyn native Zab "Super" Judah on SHOWTIME Championship Boxing.
