Cletus Seldin and Bayan Jargal Will Try It Again

Cletus "Hebrew Hammer" Seldin is scheduled to face Bayan "The Mongolian Mongoose" Jargal in a rematch of their August fight. The first fight was ruled a No Contest after an accidental headbutt opened up a cut around Jargal's eye in the second round. The fight was stopped after the third round. The rematch is scheduled for December 20 and will be held in the same venue as the first fight, the Paramount Theatre in Huntington, New York.

In the first fight, Seldin (14-0, 11 KOs) used pressure and constant combinations to take control of the fight early. Jargal (17-5-3, 11 KOs) tried to box, but Seldin was adept at cutting off the ring. The clash of heads early in the second round posed a significant disadvantage to Jargal for the remainder of the fight.

The bout was broadcast on ESPN 2 in the United States. The rematch is scheduled for ten rounds in the junior welterweight division.
