Cletus Seldin recovering from shoulder surgery

NEW YORK (May 7, 2013) Popular undefeated jr. welterweight prospect Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin is recovering well from surgery on his right shoulder to repair his rotator cuff and labrum. Known for his spectacular knockouts and sporting a record of 11-0-0 with nine knockouts, the young ‘Hebrew Hammer’ is a product of the huge resurgence of professional boxing on Long Island by Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing.

“Our team at Star Boxing wishes Cletus a successful and speedy recovery” said DeGuardia. “Fans on Long Island have been very supportive of him and we’re proud that he’s developed through our very successful ‘ROCKIN FIGHTS’ series at The Paramount which rocks Huntington, New York. We expect Cletus to play a key role in the further resurgence on Long Island”

Seldin has fought six of his last seven bouts at The Paramount, each fight resulting in show stopping knockouts. The orthoscopic operation on the labrum and rotator cuff was performed by Dr. Answorth Allen on the right shoulder on April 22. Seldin is in physical therapy, and is scheduled to be back at the Paramount this September.

The ‘Hebrew Hammer’ will attend the next Star Boxing event, “ROCKIN FIGHTS 8” at The Paramount on Saturday, MAY 11 in support of his fellow local boxers. Fans will be able to take photos with him then.
