Weights are in for Rockin Fights 19

Today’s weigh-in for Star Boxing’s spectacular fight card at The Paramount tomorrow evening was open to the public at Modell’s Sporting Goods at Huntington Shopping Center on Long Island.  With cameras flashing throughout the proceedings, unbeaten, power-puncher Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin (16-0, 13 KOs), wearing an American bandana, easily made weight, tipping the scales at 139.2 lbs, well under the light welterweight limit.

His veteran opponent Ranee Ganoy (38-12-2, 32 KOs), appearing sweaty in effort to make weight, was over the limit at 140.4 pounds. But Ganoy returned to the scales less than an hour later, and had dropped the necessary ounces. The 10-round light welterweight clash is the main event at The Paramount in Huntington tomorrow night (Friday, June 19).

Here are the weights for the undercard combatants, three top-notch, six-round bouts with a local flair, as well as a four-rounder: New Hyde Park’s Rich Neves, 154 lbs. (8-2-2, 4 KOs) will battle Alex Mancera, 154.6 lbs. (8-6-1, 5 KOs) of Queens/junior middleweights; Woodhaven’s Daniel Gonzales, 140.8 lbs. (8-0-1, 3 KOs) steps into the ring against Carl McNickles, 140.8 lbs. (8-8, 6 KOs) of Chicago/junior welterweights; unbeaten Johnny Hernandez, 126.2 lbs. (4-0, 1 KO) of Huntington is matched against San Juan, Puerto Rico’s Angel Suarez, 127 lbs., (2-2) /featherweights; and in the four-rounder, Terrell Bostic, 138.8 lbs. of Wyandanch, NY in his pro debut vs. Brooklyn’s Makashi Aida, 142.2 lbs.

Fighting under the guidance of promoter Joe DeGuardia, Seldin on an almost identical path to that of another Star Boxing-promoted fighter, Chris Algieri.

Seldin has showcased his considerable talents almost exclusively at The Paramount, where he has scored 12 of his victories, including eight straight. The route is on par to that of Algieri, who used The Paramount as a launching pad for his success before graduating to Barclays Center and Macao.
