New York, June 17 – It’s fight week and Thursday’s weigh-in for Star Boxing’s spectacular Paramount card is open to the public at 2:00PM at Modell’s Sporting Goods at Huntington Shopping Center on Walt Whitman Road. Unbeaten, power-puncher Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin will put his perfect 16-0 record on the line when he squares off against battle-tested Ranee Ganoy (38-12-2, 32 KO’s) in a 10-round light welterweight clash at The Paramount in Huntington on Fridaynight, June 19th.
“Cletus is for real, and is poised to emerge in the light welterweight division,” says DeGuardia. “He’s very strong, and has knockout power in each hand. An outstanding athlete who’s always in outstanding shape, Cletus comes ready with aggressive body punching to match his crowd-pleasing style.”
Seldin has showcased his considerable talents almost exclusively at The Paramount, where he has scored 12 of his victories, including eight straight. The path is similar to that of Algieri, who used The Paramount as a launching pad for his success before graduating to Barclays Center and Macao.
Seldin had this to say about Ganoy, the knockout specialist from Albuquerque, NM: “He has a nice solid, tight, fighting stance. He’s a tough guy, a tough opponent, and with 32 KOs, he will probably come in for the knockout. If he does that, you know what happens, you get the hammer! Having a victory over him will boost me to the top 15.”
The undercard features four top-notch, six-round bouts with local fresh faces: New Hyde Park’s Rich Neves (8-2-2, 4 KOs) will battle Alex Mancera (8-6-1, 5 KOs) of Queens/junior middleweights; Woodhaven’s Daniel Gonzales (8-0-1, 3 KOs) steps into the ring against Carl McNickles (8-8, 6 KOs) of Chicago/junior welterweights; Westbury’s Dave Meloni (3-1, 1 KO) faces Rigoberto Miranda of the Bronx/junior lightweights; and unbeaten Johnny Hernandez (4-0, 1 KO) of Huntington is matched against San Juan, Puerto Rico’s Angel Suarez (2-2)/featherweights.
