Seldin-Mati Off

Cletus Seldin had been scheduled to fight undefeated prospect Reshat Mati on February 4 at Madison Square Garden in New York, but the fight is off.

Cletus has fought once since March of 2020. In September of 2021, Victor Vazquez was brought in as an opponent for Seldin. Vazquez, who would've been overmatched had they fought, failed the physical and the fight was called off. Last June, Seldin was scheduled to fight the undefeated Rachid Jkitou, but Jkitou had to pull out late due to a medical issue.

It has all amounted to lost time for the 36 year old Seldin, who hasn't been able to build on an eleventh round TKO victory over Zab Judah in 2019 to win the vacant NABA junior welterweight belt. A victory over William Silvca is his only notable win since.
