Undefeated, WBC Silver International Champion and WBC World #6th ranked Jr. Welterweight contender Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin (18-0 15KO Long Island, NY), will take on Mexican brawler Jesus Selig (19-3-1 12KO Douglas, AZ) Friday night, June 17th at The Paramount in Huntington, NY in a 10 round Jr. Welterweight contest as part of Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing’s popular fight series “Rockin Fights”.
Seldin, who has continually climbed the ranks of the Jr. Welterweight division, will be appearing for the 15th time at the Paramount. Seldin has become a must see attraction for his all action fights and tremendous punching power. Seldin captured the WBC title on December 20, 2014, stopping the very tough Bayan Jargal in 9 rounds and has successfully defended it 3 times. In his last outing at The Paramount on March 5th of this year, Seldin returned from shoulder surgery and picked right up where he left off by destroying Puerto Rican Orlando Vasquez in 1 round. Seldin will face a much sterner test when he takes on the veteran Selig on June 17th.
Selig is coming off 2 straight knockout wins and has crossed gloves with world rated fighters Sadam Ali and John Jackson as well as top prospect Jose Ramirez. Selig is a game slugger who always comes to fight and gives 100% each time. He vows that he will put Seldin to the test on June17th.
Promoter Joe DeGuardia had these comments regarding the main event, “Cletus Seldin is becoming a major force in the already loaded Jr. Welterweight division. His ferocious style has attracted droves of fans and on June 17th we expect the same as he faces a tough task when he battles Mexican Jesus Selig who is coming in to upset the applecart. I expect another exciting night of fights at The Paramount, as has become the tradition with the Rockin Fights series”.
