Former amateur standout and current hot welterweight prospect Cletus "The Hebrew Hammer" Seldin has signed an exclusive promotional contract with Star Boxing, it was announced today by Joe DeGuardia, founder and CEO of Star Boxing.
Fighting out of Dix Hills in Long Island, New York, the hard hitting 25 year old will be featured on Star Boxing's undercard at "Rockin' Fights" this Saturday night, January 28th at the Paramount Theater in Huntington, Long Island.
"We're very proud to bring Cletus aboard to the Star Boxing team. I've watched his exciting, fan pleasing style as an amateur and pro. Most recently he electrified the crowds at Madison Square Garden in October and on our last show at the Paramount Theatre in November" said DeGuardia.
"His aggressive, all-action style has made Cletus among the most popular fighters in the New York City area and we plan on keeping him very busy this year."
