Salita signs to fight Camacho

The Barclays Center-Golden Boy card for February 9 is coming to together.

Dmitriy Salita informs NYFightblog that he signed a contract to fight Hector Camacho Jr. underneath the Danny Garcia-Zab Judah main event.

A flashy win for either man could elevate them in the welterweight division, and help them cut the line to a title shot.

Salita, age 30, is 35-1-1. Camacho, age 34, is 54-5-1.

Camacho has skills but has often kept them hidden in recent years. One figures his motivation could be in another realm. Though, on fight night, as he will be fighting for the first time since his Hall of Fame-bound father Hector Sr. was shot and killed in Puerto Rico last month.
