Seldin Has a New Opponent

Cletus Seldin will have a new opponent for tomorrow night's clash in the ring at the Paramount Theatre in Long Island, New York. The new opponent will be Jonathan Garcia, a 19 year old from Puerto Rico. Ronnie Warrior Jr. was the originally-scheduled foe.

Garcia (3-2, 1 KOs) marks Seldin's fifth opponent with a winning record. Seldin (7-0, 5 KOs) is almost seven years older than Garcia. Seldin is the naturally bigger man, a big advantage for someone so strong for his weight. Garcia is a junior welterweight who hit the scales at 142 for this one. Seldin is a welterweight who has weighed as high as 148 pounds and has never been below 143. He weighed in at 144.5 pounds this time.

Seldin has had all seven of his pro fights within the previous 13 months. He last fought in March. Garcia has fought two other undefeated opponents. He's 1-1 in those fights.

This fight is scheduled for six rounds.
