Seldin Wins By TKO

Cletus Seldin defeated Bayan Jargal last night at the Paramount Theatre in Huntington, New York. Seldin earned a ninth round TKO in a rematch of a July fight. Last summer, Seldin was controlling the action before a headbutt produced a cut over Jargal's eye and the bout was ruled a no contest.

Seldin, who weighed in at 139 1/4 pounds, knocked Jargal down twice in the fight. One knockdown came in the first after Cletus landed a chopping overhand right. The second one precipitated the end of the fight in the ninth.

Seldin improves to 15-0 with 12 KOs while Jargal falls to 17-6-3 with 11 KOs.

Milch Wins on Points

Junior middleweight Tony Milch defeated Zoltan Turai on points last Friday. The bout was a four rounder and took place at Camden Centre in London, England. Milch told The Jewish Boxing Blog that his strengths in the fight were "My work rate, punch variety and output and speed."

BoxRec reports Turai's height as 5'3 1/2". Milch believes BoxRec's listing is erroneous, telling The JBB, "If only he was that short." Milch believes Turai was 5'7" or 5'8".

Turai falls to 6-3 with 4 KOs. The Hungarian 154 pounder has lost three of his last four fights. Though Milch, who is now 6-0 with a KO, indisputably had the height advantage, he gave up 13 years to his 20 year old opponent. Milch hopes to get back into the ring in February.
