Salita 03/11/2016

Another internationally significant fighter has been added to Salita Promotions’ “Detroit Brawl” event at the Masonic Temple in Downtown Detroit, on Saturday, November 12.

In another impressive addition to an already stacked card, BBBofC Central Area Super Bantamweight Champion Muheeb Fazeldin will fight a six-rounder against an opponent to be announced.

Sponsored by Thomas Magee’s Sporting House Whiskey Bar, tickets for “Detroit Brawl” will be priced at VIP $123, Box Seats $100, Ringside $93, $63, $38, and $28 and available at all Ticketmaster outlets and Ticketmaster.com.

Known by the ring name “Flashy,” Fazeldin (8-0-1, 3 KOs) is a 23-year-old from Sheffield, United Kingdom via Yemen. A former amateur standout, Fazeldin won three national championships, six Yorkshire titles and boxed for Great Britain’s international boxing team.

The quick-fisted southpaw says he’s coming to Detroit to branch out his fan appeal abroad and continue moving up the ladder.

“My aim is keep climbing up the ranks and get a shot at the world title in within the next year, fighting monthly,” he said. “With the team I have now and the people we work with, I believe this is achievable!”

Fazeldin joins a full cast of local and international prospects on Salita’s latest “Detroit Brawl,” including a trio of undefeated Detroit bantamweights: James Gordon Smith (10-0, 6 KOs), Jarico “Great Lakes King” O’Quinn (3-0, 2 KOs) and Zach Shamoun (4-0-1, 3 KOs); as well as Russian cruiserweight Alexey Zubov (12-1, 7 KOs); Georgian super lightweight Giorgi Gelashvili (5-0, 3 KOs); and undefeated super welterweight Wesley Tucker (12-0, 7 KOs) of Toledo in separate bouts.

More fights, opponents and rounds will be announced shortly. On fight night, doors open at 5:00 pm and the fights begin at 6:00 pm.
