“The Hebrew Hammer” fights tonight

By Jerry Glick
Photo by Peter Frutkoff/PeterFrutkoff.com

Undefeated welterweight Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin is the latest star to emerge from Long Island for Star Boxing. Joe DeGuardia, head man at the Bronx based promotional outfit, has developed Long Island native Chris Algieri into a world champion and now Algieri is fighting superstar Manny Pacquaio! DeGuardia plans to use the same strategy to make Seldin into his next champion.

Tonight at the Paramount Theater, Seldin goes for win number fourteen against experienced journeyman Ramesis Gil (8-8-5, 5 KOs).

In his most recent fight, Seldin (13-0, 10 KOs) stepped up against the rugged Bayan Jargal, a veteran who has faced experienced fighters such as Zahir Raheem, Breidis Prescott, Steve Upsher Chambers and WBO junior welterweight champ and Star Boxing stablemate Chris Algieri. Jargal was fortunate to avoid defeat against Seldin’s aggressive attack when he suffered a cut over his right eye from an accidental head butt prompting the doctor to end the bout after two rounds declaring a no contest.

Yafai: I like to hurt people and I can punch

Kal Yafai is looking to add a second major title to his collection against Herald Molina at the SSE Arena, Wembley tomorrow night live on Sky Sports – and the talented Birmingham man looks to be on a non-stop charge to a World title.

Yafai and Molina battle it out for the vacant IBF Inter-Continental Super Flyweight strap, four months after landing the Commonwealth title in just his 11th fight with a three-round demolition of Yaqub Kareem in Leeds.

The 24 year old poured the pressure onto the former title holder from Nigeria and a sickening left hook to the body at the start of the third round was too much for the visitor to recover from. (more…)

Gonzalez, Arce face off in Los Mochis

Photos: Zanfer

WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez and Jorge “Travieso” Arce faced off Thursday at the final press conference of their mini-tour to promote their historic October 4 showdown at the brand new 8,000 capacity Multipurpose Center in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico. Arce is aiming at a world title in a sixth division.

Jhonny Gonzalez: “I respect the championships that Arce has won, his career, his dedication in the ring, but I want to say to him that on October 4, I will come with a preparation and force like never before and will defeat a boxing great in front of his own people. He has the heart of a warrior that has given him key victories in his career, but he’s taken many blows. I’ve faced several opponents with similar characteristics to “Travieso” and for that we prepare ourselves.”

Jorge Arce: “You are welcome to this land of champions Los Mochis, Sinaloa. On October 4 you’ll bring the title and you’ll get well looked after, but you’ll be defeated and leave without the belt because I’ll win. You cannot defeat me in front of my people and all those who have supported me and have made this historic boxing event possible. Winning on October 4, it is the only word that’s in my mind and I will not retire because I will win.”

Ali Raymi issues ultimatum to Chocolatito: Roman Gonzalez fight or retirement by October 1

aliraymipic300
“I am giving Roman Gonzalez till October 1, 2014 to officially confirm fighting me and face his fate vs. me in the ring — in the location of his choice,” says WBO #7 strawweight Ali Raymi who recently announced that he’s moving up to flyweight after compiling a 22-0 record with 22 KOs, including a record 21 straight first round knockouts in the 105-pound division.

“He has no excuse to duck me other than pure fear. After intimidating Roman Gonzalez I no longer have anything to prove. Cowards will still find excuses for Roman to feast on journeyman Luis Concepcion, but my place in history is secured as The Greatest Ever puncher who KOed every human he faced and pushed pretenders and the so called master boxers into hiding. My decision to retire in the event of uneventful peace is proper, as I no longer have anybody to fight and the pretenders are not brave enough to face me.”

In the main event, Orlando “Siri” Salido (41-12-2, 28 KOs) faces Terdsak “Pit Bull” Kokietgym (53-4-1, 33 KOs) for the vacant WBO interim jr lightweight belt (ordered due to the inactivity of WBO 130lb champion Mikey Garcia).
