Seldin to Fight on October 13

Welterweight Cletus Seldin is scheduled to be back in the ring on October 13 at the NYCB Theatre in Westbury, New York. Veteran Carl McNickles is slated to be Seldin's opponent.

Seldin (8-0, 6 KOs), a 26 year old, has five consecutive knockouts, all coming in the third round or earlier. He is coming off of a first round stoppage of Jonathan Garcia in July. That fight lasted two minutes and 18 seconds.

Of his aggressive style, the man nicknamed the "Hebrew Hammer" told The Jewish Boxing Blog, "Even though my style looks like I'm just a bull, there is a science behind it... I can also just box too, but I just like to fight hard." Seldin noted that his strategy for each fight is detailed, "A lot of preparation goes into a fight, so much that my coach even told me what punches are going to win the fight the last two bouts."

McNickles (8-3, 6 KOs), a 28 year old from Chicago, has fought as heavy as junior middleweight and as small as lightweight. McNickles has two majority decision victories since a December 2009 loss to Gabriel Bracero.
