Seldin Scores Fifth KO in a Row

Cletus Seldin beat Luis Eduardo Florez last night at the Paramount Theatre in Huntington, New York by way pf seventh round TKO.

Seldin was aggressive early, but the veteran Colombian was able to counter in order to weather the storm. Florez suffered a cut that forced the end of the fight a minute and eleven seconds into the seventh.

This was Seldin's seventeenth fight at the Paramount, and his fifth straight stoppage victory since the lone loss of his career.

Florez, who had nearly a four-pound advantage, was a late replacement. The 33 year old doesn't have the most impressive record, but he has faced some quality fighters such as Regis Prograis, Jamell Herring, Miguel Berchelt, and Brian Ceballo to name a few. He stopped Berchelt in the first round of their 2014 fight for Berchelt's only career loss and Florez's only win outside of his native Colombia.

Seldin is now 25-1 with 21 KOs and Florez is 25-16 with 21 KO. This was the ninth time Florez has been stopped.
