The comeback begins?

Orthodox boxer Dmitriy Salita (31-1-1, 16 KOs) scored a unanimous eight-round decision against Franklin Gonzalez (13-6, 9 KOs) last night in Brooklyn. Salita’s last fight was a horrific loss against Amir Khan in December. Salita didn’t have much trouble with Gonzalez but trouble wasn’t expected given that Gonzalez, at 34, is a little long in the tooth and lost his last three fights. This is just the beginning of Salita’s comeback and the true test of his mettle will have to happen in a future fight against a more serious opponent. This isn’t exactly Ali vs Frazier, but still… check out that Magen David on his hoodie and trunks! How cool is that?

I know, I know. Not that cool. What would be cooler would be more ass kicking!
