Salita Promises Knockout Detroit Show On Feb 6th

The city of Detroit will see an exciting show return on February 6th.


Salita Promotions is crafting a stellar promotion, from tip to top, which will feature hometown talent galore, and will be promoted by Dmitriy Salita.

Salita said:

“I am getting more and more excited for our first Detroit promotion and can’t wait to see talent like bantamweight James Gordon Smith, a Golden Gloves champion who has an 8-0 professional record.”

This national amateur champion, from East Detroit, won eight regional Golden Gloves title, and will tussle with Antoine Robertson in a six rounder.

Also sure to bring the thunder to the Masonic Temple, the iconic venue for the first Salita show, will be Ed Williams (10-1), a two-time Detroit Golden Gloves champ who is now a hot prospect at super welterweight.

Detroit’s Antonio Wade (1-0) will seek to impress and announce his skill set in the junior middleweight class. He will fight for state bragging against Jessie Addisonof Saginaw, Michigan in a four rounder. Also on the card: battle tested veteran James Lester of Detroit will attempt to derail hot NYC prospect Dimash Niyazovin a six-round tangle.

From Jackson, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit, Alfred Hall will clash with Georgian Giorgi Gelashvili, now living in Brooklyn, in a super lightweight waltz.

Will NY prevail when Bronx-based Puerto Rican cruiserweight Emilio Salas fights another Jackson, Michigan pugilist, Karrin Davis, A Detroit versus New York theme is forming with these matchups, and expect regional pride to add extra oomph to the in-the-ring action.

In addition, world title challenger Junior Wright (14-1-1; from Chicago) will return to the ring, as he makes another charge at a cruiserweight crown.

Salita concluded:

“I want the show to be a high energy, cool vibe event…so the National Anthem will be sung by Angela Davis, a tremendous R&B/soul singer. Davis was named ‘Detroit’s Super Singer’, so we can expect her rendition to be incredible. I urge all area fight fans to grab tickets early, because I believe we are going to sell out. This first ‘Detroit Brawl’ is shaping up to be a New Year knockout!”
