Born in Odessa, Ukraine, and now fighting out of the Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn after immigrating to the United States with his parents at age nine. Salita is a spiritual young man who practices Orthodox Judaism. Thus, he has been dubbed "Star of David."
After returning home from the White House, Salita will spend this Saturday evening (after sundown) with family and friends watching his November 18th bout against Paul Delgado on DiBella Entertainment's Broadway Boxing which airs for the first time on MSG Network on December 11th at 10 PM.
