News and Notes

Cletus Seldin will be honored by the Jewish Sports Heritage Association in its class of 2025. Past honorees include Boyd Melson, Yuri Foreman, and Dmitriy Salita. Seldin's career record is 28-1 with 23 KOs. The 37 year old last fought in March. After defeating Jose Angulo by majority decision, he proposed to his girlfriend in the ring. She said yes!


Stefi Cohen has been arrested twice recently. The world-record powerlifter was first arrested in May over a situation involving her ex-boyfriend. She was arrested again a couple of weeks ago for theft.


The Sweet Science published my article about the time welterweight champion Joe Dundee held an entire ballpark hostage because he wanted more money. A riot ensued and Dundee, his manager, and the promoter were all arrested for false advertising.
