Timeline

2013

In August 2013 as part of fundraising activities for the network of Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish schools Oholey Jinuj, during a gala dinner in Buenos Aires speaking with the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Salita affirmed that at the end of his boxing career, he will migrate to Israel with his family.

Salita had an amateur record of 59–5. When he was 16, he represented New York in the Junior Olympics and won a bronze medal. "I thought, 'I'm ranked in America as a boxer.' That's when I really felt like an American", he said. His last loss came when he was 17 in a split decision in the finals of the Golden Gloves tournament in 2000.

After he moved to Brooklyn, he was exposed to Orthodox Judaism and became an observant Jew. He strictly follows Jewish law – if he has a fight on a Saturday, it must begin after sundown, the end of the sabbath. He said, "Anyone who wants a good whuppin' from me is just going to have to wait until sundown." There are as many as 70 Jewish holy days each year on which he will not fight, and he follows Jewish dietary laws. When he's training, he stays within walking distance of a synagogue for Friday and Saturday services, and he does not drive on the sabbath.

2011

In April 2011, Salita became a boxing promoter. He is the President of Brooklyn, New York-based Salita Promotions. Among the boxers Salita promotes are Claressa Shields, Christina Hammer, Jarrell Miller, and Nikolai Potapov.

2010

Salita made a comeback on September 1, 2010, fighting as a junior middleweight, winning an eight-round unanimous decision over Franklin Gonzalez at the Oceana Hall in the Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn, New York. After the Gonzalez bout, former world champion Paul Malignaggi entered the ring to congratulate Salita and propose a bout between the two of them in the very near future. On April 13, 2011, Salita (33–1–1, 17 KOs) scored an eight-round unanimous decision victory over Ronnie Warrior Jr. (13–5–1, 4 KOs) at the Oceana ballroom in Brooklyn.

2009

In September 2009, Salita married an Israeli citizen, Alona Aharonov, Alona is from the Lubavitch community.

In May 2009 he scored a dominant 10-round shutout victory over Raul "El Toro" Munoz (20–12–1, 15 KOs) in Las Vegas for his 30th win. "Salita wobbled Munoz with a barrage of power shots. An uppercut flush under the chin awakened a startled Munoz, who somehow found his way back to the middle of the ring", noted distinguished boxing reporter Albert Howell.

Salita lost to WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan on December 5, 2009. Khan knocked out Salita in 76 seconds, knocking him down three times in the first round to defend his world title, shattering Salita's dreams of a world title. Salita credited Khan's superior hand speed as the reason for being knocked down. "He has very quick hands. I didn't see the punches coming".

In 2009 Salita visited Israel and the Palestinian territories. During his tour he visited the Western Wall in Jerusalem, planted trees in Aminadav Forest and toured Hebron in the West Bank, where he visited the Cave of Machpela and other holy sites. He also gave boxing tips and sparred with local Jewish residents.

In 2009, Salita signed a deal to represent ARTHUR, a French-based Homewear company.

2007

Salita remained in contention for a junior welterweight title bout, extending his unbeaten streak to 28, with a unanimous 10-round decision over Grover Wiley at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York in March 2007. Salita staggered Wiley (30–9–1) with a series of body punches in the 7th round.

Bill Farrell of the New York Daily News reported, "In a bout that lived up to all its expectations, Dmitriy Salita battled past Joey Rios to win the Golden Gloves 139-pound open title last night at the Theater at Madison Square Garden. The 3–2 decision won by Salita in as fine a boxing match ever staged in the Golden Gloves finals earned Salita the Sugar Ray Robinson Award as the outstanding boxer in the tournament. Salita, who is as talented as they come, got into his rhythm midway through Round 2, and finally took control of the bout to earn the decision and a pair of Golden Gloves."

He turned pro at the age of 19, in the summer of 2001. He signed a contract with Las Vegas-based promoter Bob Arum, whose Top Rank stable of fighters has included George Foreman, Larry Holmes, and Manny Pacquiao.

1999

His mother originally opposed her son's boxing, but eventually became an enthusiastic supporter. She died in January 1999, after a two-year battle with breast cancer. When she was hospitalized, Salita divided his time between James Madison High School, the Starrett gym, and Sloan Kettering Memorial Hospital. He said, "I'd spend the night sleeping in a chair at the hospital and wake up to do my roadwork." He became involved around this time with the Chabad movement. As a tribute to his mother, he uses her maiden name, Salita, as his professional name.
