Triumph! The one word that sums up the night for Jewish Welterweight fighter Dmitriy Salita (33-1-1, 17 KOs) who scored an eight round unanimous decision victory over Ronnie Warrior Jr. (13-5-1, 4 KOs) Wednesday evening at the Oceana ballroom in Brooklyn, New York.

It was Salita’s third fight in only eight months and he came through in front of the hometown crowd,  aggressive from the first bell, controlling the bout and show casing his superior fighting skills. On the offensive for most of the eight rounds he forced his left-handed opponent to adopt a defensive stance, while using his greater reach and speed to his advantage. The Brooklyn native put on a clinic by outmatching his opponent on all levels.

One frightening moment came in the final round when Salita sustained a nasty gash over his left eye after a head butt from Warrior. But the “Star of David” had the final say with many devoted fans and supporters cheering him on as he pulled out of the last round with a well deserved victory.
