Long Island, NY/Detroit, MI (February 6, 2016) – Tonight, from the Masonic Temple in Detroit, Michigan, Salita Promotions presents the Detroit Brawl.

The action will be streamed LIVE on GFL.TV for $14.99.

On the heels of his successful Brooklyn Brawl series, promoter Dmitry Salita is taking his promotion to the historic boxing town of Detroit.

The card will feature five undefeated fighters and is headlined by by cruiserweight Junior Wright taking on Chris Stallworth in a six-round bout.

Wright (14-1-1, 11 KO’s) of Chicago is one of the most exciting cruiserweight fighters in the world. He was undefeated in his first 14 bouts going 13-0-1 and that mark was highlighted by wins over undefeated Nick Reeder (3-0-1) and Nick Kisner (12-0-1). On May 15, 2014, Wright and fellow undefeated Steve Bujaj engaged in a 10-round war that ended in a draw. The fight was an easy winner for New York Fight of the Year.

Wright came up a little short in an effort against highly acclaimed champ Rakhim Chakhiev. In his last bout, Wright got back on track with 6-round unanimous decision over Harvey Jolly.

Stallworth of Homewood, PA. has a respectable record of 9-3 with 3 knockouts.

An 8-bout undercard will be available live beginning at 7:30 PM ET.
