Cletus Seldin Becomes a Free Agent

Cletus Seldin and Star Boxing have parted way after more than a decade in business together. Seldin has been publicly amicable about the split. On Instagram, he wrote, "As Star Boxing and I have mutually agreed to part ways, we look back at the great success, triumphs, and enjoyable relationship over the last eleven years. We will always cherish those wonderful memories and the bond of our friendship that helped propel our mutual success in this game of boxing that we both love so much. Thanks for the memories, Joe DeGuardia. You will never be forgotten as I embark on the next part of my boxing journey."

Seldin, nicknamed the Hebrew Hammer, is a 36 year old with a record of 26-1 with 22 KOs. His career has stalled in recent years. After defeating Zab Judah nearly four years ago, he has fought only twice. He stopped journeyman Luis Eduardo Florez in February of 2020. His last fight came on October 2021, a stoppage victory over William Silva.

In the meantime, Seldin has had multiple fights fall through for a variety of reasons. This change might be the best thing for the junior welterweight contender's career.
