In the highly anticipated HBO World Championship Boxing TV opener, at NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, undefeated Long Island bruiser Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin (20-0, 16 KOs) faces his toughest test to date, TONIGHT, in Mexican slugger Roberto “Massa” Ortiz (35-1-2, 26 KOs).

Seldin is coming off of a career milestone appearance at The Paramount on September 28th, in Huntington, Long Island. By defeating Renald “Le Lion” Garrido in an absolute war in the Rockin’ Fights main event, Seldin earned the achievement of the most main event appearances at The Paramount, topping former Long Island World Champion, and Star Boxing product, Chris Algieri, for the crown.

Seldin is known for his crowd-pleasing style and for having immense power in both hands, shown by his 80% knockout ratio. In his return to the ring after almost a year due to medical ailments, Seldin defeated Renald Garrido by unanimous decision, but wasted no time proving why he earned the nickname the ‘Hebrew Hammer’. The two men slugged it out as the packed house chanted “Hamma, Hamma!” Garrido, proving to have a chin of steel, managed to hang on for the 10-round distance, in what turned out to be one of the most memorable Rockin’ Fights main events in recent memory.
