The ‘Hebrew Hammer’ will get a shot at a title as Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing is proud to present another installment of the popular “Rockin Fights” series on Saturday, December 20th, 2014 at The Paramount in Huntington, NY.
The main event will feature undefeated Jr. Welterweight Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin (14-0 11KO’s) Shirley, NY. Returning after a spectacular 2nd round knockout of Ramesis Gil at The Paramount on Sept. 19th, 2014, Seldin is scheduled to fight in a grudge return match with Bayan “The Mongolian Mongoose” Jargal, 17-5-3 11KO’s, Arlington, VA in a 10 round Jr. welterweight match for Regional Title that will be announced shortly. Seldin and Jargal hooked up at The Paramount on July 18th of this year in a feature bout televised as part of the popular ESPN “Friday Night Fights” series. From the opening bell these two warriors went right at each other with damaging punches. The bout was stopped after 3 rounds due to a cut over Jargal’s eye that also caused severe swelling. The bout was ruled a Technical Draw and this time each combatant promises a more definitive ending in what was shaping up as an all-out thrilling war.
The Semi-Final 8 round bout will feature new Star Boxing acquisition, Light Heavyweight Joe Smith Jr., 16-1 13Ko’s, Shirley, NY in his first appearance at The Paramount against an opponent to be named shortly. Smith is known for his devastating power as a professional and was a decorated amateur in the tri state area. In his last fight on July 23rd, 2014, Joe stopped Tyrell Hendrix in 3 rounds in New York City. Smith is also a working member of the Laborers
Union (Local 66) and expects to have many Laborers at the fight.
Star Boxing head honcho Joe DeGuardia had this to say about the holiday card: ” I am excited to have another exciting show at the Paramount. The fights will once again be very fan-friendly and I’m looking to see Seldin and Jargal trade blows again. Their first encounter was a crowd pleasing battle while it lasted. This should be is a tough test for Cletus as Jargal always gives his all and known for his tremendous ability to withstand punishment and then battle back. I’m also thrilled to showcase Star Boxing’s newest signing, Joe Smith Jr. , in the semi-final 8 rounder. He is really an action fighter and I’m excited to see him fight at the The Paramount, a venue that always brings out the best in fighters.”
