STAR BOXING CEO JOE DEGUARDIA:
"Brooklyn's own Zab Judah, a future hall-of-famer, taking on
another New Yorker, Cletus "The Hebrew Hammer" Seldin, is a
real testiment to boxing, on the biggest weekend in boxing,
at Turning Stone on International Boxing Hall of Fame
"On one hand we have the hardest puncher on Long Island,
Cletus Seldin, with a throwback style to the 1950's, against
6-time world champion and future hall of famer, Zab Judah"
"Be sure to tune in next Saturday night for a thrilling
night of fights."
"I have respect for Zab Judah, I respect his career, I
respect what he has done ... but when we get in the ring, I
have no respect, no care, only determination, and one job in
mind, and thats hurting the other individual in front of me,
and thats it.

is a great opportunity for Cletus, who has been training
very hard. Be sure to tune-in."

for Cletus, he has trained with more intensity, and more
focus then ever before, and you are in for a great fight."
"I want to thank the media, Joe DeGuardia and Star Boxing
and everyone for coming out here today."
"To my opponent, I respect you guys but welcome to the
terror zone. I got more knockouts then he got fights."
"You all know how serious I am, how focused and dedicated I
am. Friday night, the train continues and it starts with
YOEL JUDAH (father & trainer of Zab Judah):
