So, which of the Israelis will pack a punch on Boxing Day?

By Danny Caro, December 22, 2010

It has been a frustrating season for Israelis in the Premier League for one reason or another so here's a quick rough guide for anyone hoping to see the top Israeli imports in action on Boxing Day. Chelsea's Yossi Benayoun continues his recuperation after tearing his Achilles tendon. Tamir Cohen played the last ten minutes of Bolton's 1-0 defeat against Sunderland but he is unlikely to feature in Saturday's clash at home to West Brom after flying home to visit his father in a Tel Aviv hospital.

By Danny Caro, December 20, 2010

Dmitriy Salita floored late substitute James Wayka five times on his way to a third round knockout victory at New York's Roseland Ballroom.

Salita's body punching proved too much for the outclassed Wayka who was down twice in the second round and three more times in the third before referee David Fields waved the fight off.

The fight was billed for the vacant New York State title after Wayka, loser of 10 of his 27 fights, stepped in at short notice when Mike Anchondo, who was due to meet Salita for the vacant IBA welterweight title, withdrew through illness.
