Garcia vs. Morales II undercard results: Dimitriy Salita defeats Brandon Hoskins by unanimous decision

One of seven hometown fighters on Saturday's Barclays Center boxing card in Brooklyn, Dimitriy Salita improved to 35-1-1, 18 KOs with a unanimous decision victory over Brandon Hoskins in a six round junior middleweight fight. Salita won on scores of 60-54 and two 59-55 cards. The loss was Hoskins' third of his career, dropping him to 16-3-1, 8 KOs.The bout was on the undercard of Danny Garcia-Erik Morales II.

Salita's impressive record is a bit misleading, for sure, as most fighters with that many scraps under their belt are done with four or six round swing bouts. In his only high-profile fight, Salita couldn't get out of the first round as he was blasted by Amir Khan, who dropped him three times to the canvas. But with the Barclays Center having a chance to become a very solid fight venue, Salita can certainly carve out a nice living for himself while fighting locally.

The fight came after Danny Jacobs' emotional return to the ring after beating cancer, when the Brooklyn-native scored a first round TKO of Josh Luteran. Other early winners on the card were Luiz Collazo, Boyd Melson, and Eddie Gomez.

Up next, IBF Welterweight titlist Randall Bailey defends his belt against Devon Alexander in the first of four bouts on Showtime's main card.
