Two of DiBella Entertainment’s brightest local heroes â€“ Brooklyn’s undefeated Dmitriy “Star of David” Salita (25-0-1, 15 KO’s) and Manhattan’s red hot Edgar “El Chamaco” Santana (18-2, 12 KO’s) â€“ will share top billing in doubleheader main events on Wednesday night, September 20 in the Hammerstein Ballroom at Manhattan Center in New York City on the next edition of Broadway Boxing Presented by StubHub.
Two televised shows will be taped at the September 20 edition of Broadway Boxing which will feature two main events and two co-features plus an exciting undercard.
Fighting out of Brooklyn, Dmitriy Salita has a stellar ring record of 25-0-1, including 15 wins by way of knockout. “Star of David” returned to the Broadway Boxing scene on July 20th to uncork a powerful sixth round TKO of Shad Howard. Salita will square off against Francisco Campos (20-7-1, 12 KO’s) of Costa Rica in one of two main event bouts. Both are scheduled for 10 rounds in the junior welterweight division.
A native of Manati, Puerto Rico, now fighting out of Spanish Harlem, Edgar Santana has become an exciting fixture on the New York circuit over the past two years. “El Chamaco” has reeled off nine straight Broadway Boxing victories; all in impressive fashion, en route to 13 consecutive wins overall. Santana will take on Vladimir Khodokovsky (14-9-2, 3 KO’s) of the Ukraine in the other main event.
Broadway Boxing will air on a later date in high definition exclusively on HDNet and in over 30 million homes on SportsNet New York in the New York Metropolitan Area, Comcast SportsNet Chicago, Comcast SportsNet Southeast, Comcast SportsNet West and Comcast Local - Detroit. Broadway Boxing is sponsored by StubHub, HBO Sports, and Gallagher’s Steak House.
The excitement of Broadway Boxing’s fights and the electricity of the crowds at the Manhattan Center have drawn the likes of celebrities and athletes such as Jay Z., Hilary Swank, Rosario Dawson, Fat Joe, Camron, Lennox Lewis, Jermain Taylor, Ricky Hatton, Tiki Barber and Tracy McGrady to name a few.
