Golden Boy Promotions has negotiated an agreement with Zeferino Entertainment for Hector “Machito” Camacho Jr. (55-5-29ko) to face Brooklyn’s fan favorite Dmitriy Salita (35-1-18ko’s). This will take place on the undercard of the much anticipated match-up between Danny Garcia vs. Zab Judah at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York.

Camacho Jr’s Promoter Zef Ramirez states “I’m very excited for the opportunity Golden Boy promotions has given Jr. I feel this is the break we need for Jr., to see that he belongs amongst the greats of today. Jr. is training in his hometown of Puerto Rico and has the fire burning within him. He is looking to shine come February 9th; with a win this could move Jr., into contention to fight the top fighters.”
