Seldin's Right Ends the Fight

Last night, Cletus "the Hebrew Hammer" Seldin connected with a tremendous right hand that sent his opponent, Jonathan Garcia, down in the opening round, stopping the fight. The bout was the fourth in a row for Seldin, who wore his customary purple trunks, held at the Paramount Theatre in Long Island, New York.

Garcia was able to touch an aggressive Cletus with a number of loose slapping punches early, but he exhibited a bad habit of dropping his hands before throwing. That allowed Seldin to nail him with a tight right a minute into the bout. Another right came crashing onto Garcia's face a minute later amid chants from the crowd of "Hammer! Hammer!" Two minutes and ten seconds into the clash, Seldin launched a highlight-quality looping right that stopped things.

The Hebrew Hammer earned his sixth career knockout and second first round stoppage. His record is now 8-0. Garcia fell to 3-3 with 1 KOs.
