A “lifetime achievement” is how Dmitriy Salita described what being crowned IBF light-welterweight champion would mean to him ahead of tomorrow’s night title fight against Amir Khan.
Scheduled to walk into the ring to the tones of Matisyahu, Salita, 27, has handled a media frenzy in his usual calm and assured style since after touching down in England from his Brooklyn home at the end of last week. One of his first assignments was to visit the Kosher Deli in north west London. Then it was off to Tyneside.
