Star Boxing’s Undefeated Jr. Welterweight Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin faces Mexican warrior Johnny Garcia, in the main event from The Paramount in Huntington, NY, February 27th live on ESPN’s Friday Night fights. The fight will be a 10 round bout for Seldin’s WBC International Jr. Welterweight title.
This will mark the first time Seldin (15-0 12KO’s, Shirley, NY) will be featured as the main event attraction on ESPN and the popular power punching Long Islander has no easy task in front of him as he battles the ever so tough Johnny Garcia (19-2-1 11KO’s, Holland MI). The thrilling and charismatic Seldin is one of the hardest punchers in the division.
The two fighters have similar styles, both are very aggressive and both carry ‘one-punch’ knockout power. Seldin captured the title in his last bout at The Paramount on December 14th, a stirring 9th round TKO over Bayan Jargal in a fight that kept the fans on their feet throughout the whole bout. These types of fights have become a staple for Seldin making him a must see fighter on the rise.
Garcia is no stranger to these kinds of fights either. For example, in one of his best wins (2012) he outslugged the undefeated Cuban prospect Yordenis Ugas in a thrilling 8 round war. Garcia has promised to come into Seldin’s backyard and upset the apple cart by walking out with Seldin’s WBC International title.
Joe DeGuardia (President/CEO of Star Boxing) had this to say about this upcoming bout, “As a fan I can’t wait to see these two warriors trade bombs on February 27th. I know for the fans in attendance and those viewing on the ESPN network this could be an early candidate for Fight of the Year. You have 2 young, hungry fighters, both like to brawl, both good punchers, both crowd pleasing fighters which should make for another exciting sold out night at The Paramount”.
