Seldin Makes Quick Return


Undefeated junior welterweight Cletus "The Hebrew Hammer" Seldin, (21-0, 17 KO’s) of Long Island, New York makes a return to HBO World Championship Boxing against Yves Ulysse Jr., (14-1, 9 KO’s), in a 10 round clash this Saturday night, at the Place Bell in Laval, Quebec, Canada.
The bout will open the telecast at 9:40 p.m. ET.
"Friday after the Ortiz knockout I got the call to fight Ulysse on December 16 and said yes immediately. This is my job, I’m a prizefighter and I love to fight and entertain," said Seldin who had a huge crowd of passionate supporters at Nassau Coliseum known locally as the ’Hamma Heads’.
"I truly want to fight every month so it was easy to get back in the ring so quickly. It’s an honor to be asked to fight on HBO in such a quick return and I plan on making the most of it."
"Some of these more modern fighters want to fight every six months but I’m a throwback to a different era when top fighters fought much more often."
"From the moment I hear my ring walk music and hear the crowd erupt I’m ready. Most boxing fans love aggression and they love knockouts and that’s what I bring, always."
About fighting in Canada and facing Ulysse, Seldin stated, "We’ve studied him but my job is to take the fight right to him with no hesitation and let him know who’s the boss. While most of my fights have been at home it’s another ring in Canada, same size ’office’. No affect at all fighting on the road. I’ll go anywhere and fight any junior welterweight."
"For me I don’t change anything, not my trunks, shoes or warmup. I noticed today while I was packing for Montreal that there’s some of Ortiz’s dried blood on my shoes from November 11, sort of like a badge of honor from my fight."
"This Saturday night is another chapter for me, I belong on HBO fighting in big fights, this is why I train so hard. I’m a gladiator coming to hurt and coming to win."
