Meanwhile, Star Boxing is proud of Long Island's Cletus Seldin, who, on the same card, improved to 21-0 with 17 knockouts by stopping Roberto Ortiz (35-2-2, 28 KOs) in the third round.
As soon as the fight started, Seldin pursued Ortiz with his relentless style, dropping Ortiz twice in the opening round. The first knockdown was the result of a right hand that landed on the temple.
Opening up a huge cut over Ortiz left eye with a right cross in the second round, Seldin earned the stoppage with a barrage of power punches in the third stanza as referee Shada Murdaugh called a halt to the junior welterweight bout.
"This is what I do, I'm the Hammer," said Seldin. "I know what I'm capable of in the junior welterweight division and I'm ready to take on all comers, any of the top names. I belong on HBO in big fights."
"My fans have been seeing me do this for the last couple of years at The Paramount on Long Island. I'm thrilled we were able to do this at the Coliseum and on HBO. I can't wait to fight here again where we can fill the place with the 'Hamma Heads'".
"Boxing always needs new stars and tonight in Cletus Seldin the sport has a new one," said his promoter, Joe DeGuardia. "We're very thankful to Peter Nelson and HBO for the opportunity, clearly Cletus was ready to take advantage of it. We look forward to a big year for Cletus in 2018 with bigger opportunities and working with HBO on bigger fights at Nassau Coliseum."
