Nakash and Seldin Sign

Ran Nakash (26-1, 18 KOs) and Cletus Seldin (5-0, 3 KOs) have signed with different promotional companies. Nakash has signed with DiBella Entertainment and Seldin with Star Boxing.

Nakash fought last Saturday for the first time under the DiBella flag and won his New York debut by comfortable unanimous decision over Derek Bryant.

Of Nakash, Lou DiBella told The Ring's Mike Coppinger, “He’s got marketability as an Israeli army guy who right now probably is the best active Israeli fighter and maybe even the best active Jewish fighter. He’s sort of like a fireplug, throws a lot of punches, fun to watch. There’s some things for him as a small heavyweight and immediately as a cruiserweight title challenger.”

Seldin will make his Star Boxing debut this Saturday. Star Boxing's CEO Joe DeGuardia said of Seldin, "We’re very proud to bring Cletus aboard to the Star Boxing team. I’ve watched his exciting, fan pleasing style as an amateur and pro. Most recently he electrified the crowds at Madison Square Garden in October and on our last show at the Paramount Theatre in November. His aggressive, all-action style has made Cletus among the most popular fighters in the New York City area and we plan on keeping him very busy this year.”

Seldin's bout is scheduled to take place at the Paramount Theatre in Long Island, New York.
