Is Salita a Top P4P Candidate in NY?

Michael Woods has started a pound-for-pound list, including only New York fighters, for ESPN New York that he expects to update monthly. Woods recently unveiled 15-20 of his list, which accounts for both male and female boxers.

Dmitriy Salita (33-1-1, 17 KOs) was rated as the 20th best boxer in New York according to the list. Salita's ranking likely took a hit because of the dearth of talented opposition he has faced. That is an issue Salita is looking to correct by potentially fighting the skilled French-Moroccan Ismael El Massoudi (36-3, 14 KOs). But the fight has come under a contract dispute.

With improved opposition, Salita should climb up this list as he is more skilled than a number of the fighters slated above him.

  1. I have been critical of Salita-but fuggitaboutit-he deserves to be rated above Amanda Serrano-and any other women on this list;no,I don't follow women's boxing...or the NBA vs. the WNBA either..
