Amir Khan Knocks Out Dmitriy Salita

Amir Khan Knocks Out Dmitriy Salita

Well, this will be a quick fight to write about! Amir Khan Knocks Out Dmitriy Salita in the first round of their much awaited fight, 76 Seconds to be exact. Dmitriy Salita looked extremely nervous when both him and Amir Khan were called to the middle of the ring to be given the final instructions by the referee.

It was literally the first few punches that Amir Khan fired off that put Dmitriy Salita down for the first time in the fight. A one-two combination, with the power hand catching him flush in the face. Salita looked very stunned from this knock down,  as if he was on autopilot, the lights were on but nobody was home. As soon as the fight was allowed to continue Amir Khan could see that Dimitriy Salita's head hadn't fully cleared, so Amir put some pressure on him, throwing some nice punches as Salita was covering up, trying to recover from the first knockdown. One of those Khan punches landed, also a few shots landed as Salita was down in a crouching position, trying to get away from the shots, down he went for the second time.

Yet again, as soon as Salita was given the count by the referee and allowed to continue, Khan put him under extreme pressure, this time catching him with one nice hook that put Salita down for the 3rd and final time. Salita's legs were not there, it really showed in the fight that he struggled to make the weight. Every punch he was caught with hurt him. To be honest, i think he was very very nervous from the start, and this played a big role in him being knocked out so early. It looked to me like the event got to him, this coupled with the fact that he was about 3 levels below Khan in the first place, we can see why he lost.

Not taking anything away from Khan, he fought a great fight, looked very calm and confident all the way through this whole event, from the conferences to the weigh-in, and then in the actual fight itself. Once Khan hurt Salita, he never gave him a chance to get himself back together, which was the right thing to do. Great win for Amir Khan, who now wants to go and fight in the USA, or even a possible showdown with Ricky Hatton or Kevin Mitchell. Mitchell also looked superb tonight, taking a unanimous points decision victory over Breidis Prescott.

Im also happy to report that Enzo Maccarinelli knocked out Kirstian Jaksi in the first round, making a small but much needed step back into contention.

Kimbo Slice Beats Houston Alexander. Alexander tried to fight at a distance, but Kimbo was hunting him down. He showed some real skills, other then just brawling. The fight went to the scorecards, where Kimbo won the decision.

id like to see if salita was interviewed after the fight to see what he had to say. he's not a bad guy. that can happen to anyone. looked at amir khan 18 months ago he was in the same position as salita was tonight---only khan was knocked out even quicker!

Salita was no match for Amir Khan. So much for all the tough "Im from Brooklyn", where all the tough guys and tough gyms are talk.

Ko'd in a second

Salita was way way out of his depth.

salita got knocked silly

Salita could retire from that loss. All that hard work, all the sparring, all the people building confidence in you, all your training team beleiving in you. All over in a few punches. Dream shattered, that would be gutting
