Junior Wright Signs With Salita's Star Of David Promotions

Star of David Promotions boss Dmitriy Salita is pleased and excited to announce the recent signing of Junior Wright, a cruiserweight contender from Chicago.

The 27-year-old Wright, a three-time Chicago Golden Gloves champion (2006, 2008, 2009), came to the attention of Salita when he expertly fought Steve Bujaj on a May 15 Star of David Promotions card in Brooklyn. That bout, a 10-round draw with the vacant WBC International cruiserweight title up for grabs, drew buzz for being a Fight of the Year candidate.

"Junior Wright is one of the best cruiserweights in the world," Salita said. "He is the kind of fighter the sport needs. From the early stages of his career he has shown the desire to fight and beat the best available fighters. His last fight was one of the best live fights I have ever seen."

Wright grew up in a Chicago neighborhood where involvement in gangs could have taken him to a dark place. Instead, he found boxing, and is looking forward to the push that Star of David Promotions will give him.

"I am very proud to be American, for the opportunities that came my way as a result of my hard work and dedication," Wright said after signing the deal with Salita. "The great city of Chicago was home to our President, Barack Obama, and I am very inspired by that and want to bring the cruiserweight title to America."

Currently, the cruiserweight titles are wrapped around the waists of a Pole, a Russian, a Serb, and a Cuban-born boxer. Wright, who won the USA Midwest Regional Championship in 2010, promises to bring some cruiserweight buzz back to the US.
