Amir Khan Vs Dmitriy Salita
Amir Khan makes the first defense of his WBA title against Dmitriy Salita on Saturday 5th December in Newcastle, UK. Also on the undercard, a very interesting fight between Breidis Prescott Vs Kevin Mitchell. Prescott is, if you don't already know, the guy that knocked out Amir Khan in less then a minute of the first round in their fight 15 months ago. Since then Prescott has lost one fight, but he lost it to one of the most awkward fighters you will ever see in your life. From watching that fight myself, i think it's safe to say that Prescott is not on the slip, and Kevin Mitchell could find himself in deep water on Saturday.
Ok, back to the Khan Vs Salita fight. Who is this Salita. Well, he is from Brooklyn NY, originally from Ukraine. His boxing record is 30-0-1, that's 30 wins, no losses, 1 draw. He is also very nice guy, very respectful and very religious. But as nice as he is, it must be said. He has a blown up boxing record, many of the fighters he has beaten are all unheard of. And even against these no namers he was put down on the canvas a few times. The 1 draw was also against an unheard of fighter. Im not saying he is totally rubbish, because he's not. But he is about 3 levels below Amir Khan's boxing skills, speed and ability.
Amir Khan has come on leaps and bounds since joining forces with Freddy Roach, and i see Amir Khan totally destroying Dmitriy Salita within 8-10 rounds, possibly earlier. Dmitriy Salita is too slow in every department, footwork, punches, defense etc. Dmitriy Salita has been given this title chance, and rightly so, i mean he is 30-0. But this is too big a step up at this moment for Salita, specially with the class of opponents he is used to fighting. If he pulls off a win by managing to expose Khan's much talked about vunerability- his chin, then hats off to him, but the chances are slim.
Prediction: Amir Khan will Knock Dmitriy Salita out.
