Salita signs Olympian, Pan Am Gold medalist heavyweight Ytalo Perea

BROOKLYN, NY (JANUARY 5, 2015)--Promoter Dmitriy Salita is proud and pleased to announce another hard-hitter to his Star of David Promotions team.

Ytalo Perea, a heavyweight from Ecuador, who fought in the 2012 Olympics and won the Pan American gold for the second time at age 18, will be battling under the Salita banner, the promoter announced.

Perea will scrap on the next Star of David show, which will unfold on Jan. 22, at Webster Hall in NYC.

“Perea is extremely talented and owns incredible achievements which are very impressive for such a young athlete,” said Salita. “This includes Pan Am Games gold medal wins, wins over Cuban world champions, gold at Americas Olympic qualifiers participation in the Olympics and highlight reel knockouts on an elite level, all under the age of 19. He has tremendous potential. With the right training and fight schedule I expect him to excel in the pro ranks. The huge Spanish-speaking community in NYC will be very excited to follow this fighter who could be a future star. We are very excited to add him to our talent roster.”
