Cletus Seldin Back In Action
Cletus “Hebrew Hammer” Seldin (21-0, 17 KOs) returns on December 16th, just more than a month after a dominating KO to take on highly regarded Yves Ulysses, Jr. (14-1, 9 KOs). The 10-round bout will be televised by HBO World Championship Boxing begins live at 9:40 p.m. ET/PT as part of the undercard for the Billy Joe Saunders vs David Lemieux main event.
Seldin, of Long Island, NY, is a former WBC International Silver Super Lightweight Champion whose power has been on display throughout his career, culminating with a three-round knockout of previously once-defeated Roberto “Massa” Ortiz on November 11.
“My trainer and I have studied Yves Ulysse and know he is a solid boxer-puncher who fights with intensity and angles. He is as good as anyone in the 140lb class so it will be a hard fought exciting fight. I want to thank my promoter, Joe DeGuardia and HBO for getting me right back in the ring and back on HBO again so quickly. I want to fight every month like this.” said Seldin.
Seldin is facing, local Montreal product, Ulysses, Jr., who has never fought an opponent with a losing record and has just one loss by split decision.
“It has always been my dream since I started boxing to perform on HBO, the world’s most prestigious television network. I’m so happy to get the opportunity to do this at home, Dec. 16, and show the whole world what I’m capable of.” Ulysses said.
