On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman begins by discussing some of the social implications of the rise to prominence of fighters from the countries of the former Soviet Union.
Two of those fighters, IBF junior bantamweight champion Dimitri Kirilov (29-3, 9 KOs) of St. Petersburg, Russia, and unbeaten junior welterweight Dmitriy Salita (27-0-1, 15 KOs), originally from Odessa, Ukraine, will be headlining a card Thursday, February 28, at the Roseland Ballroom in New York. In the main event, Kirilov will be making the first defense of his title, facing Mexican fighter Cecilio Santos (22-8-2, 12 KOs). In the co-feature, Salita will be fighting an opponent yet to be named.
We spoke with both Dimitri Kirilov and Dmitriy Salita at a news conference in New York this past week about their upcoming fights and their careers.
