Congrats to NYSCAS alum Dmitry Salita, who will be inducted into the New York Boxing Hall of Fame later this year! Salita’s family immigrated to the United States from Ukraine, and at 13-years-old he discovered his love for boxing at Brooklyn’s Starret City Boxing Club, going pro at only 19-years-old. Fast forward a few decades and this class of ’13 alum will be inducted into the New York State Boxing Hall of Fame in April. “I fell in love with boxing and thankfully, I was blessed with some talent. Being inducted into the Boxing Hall of Fame is a tremendous honor as I’ll be recognized for my accomplishments and all the hard work that went into advancing my fighting career. I’m truly living the American dream,” Salita said. As an Orthodox Jew, Salita has figured out how to balance his religious beliefs with his boxing career. In fact, he demanded that his professional contract had a provision that his fights couldn’t take place on Shabbos or during Jewish holidays. “It takes commitment, planning, and sacrifice, like everything else that is meaningful in life. My journey would not be possible without Rabbí Zalman Liberow from Chabad of Flatbush, who is responsible for lighting my fire from the very first day when I walked into his Synagogue Chabad of Flatbush as an immigrant in his first year of high school. Touro strengthened my imagination for what is possible. I’m still reminded of the words from my former professors and even when I was very tired from training, I was excited to head to class each day,” Salita added.
