Seldin Joins Saunders-Lemieux Undercard
Cletus Seldin will be joining the undercard for the World Championship Boxing event on December 16, headlined by David Lemieux and Billy Joe Saunders.
Seldin, will fight just over a month following his defeat of Robert Ortiz, and will take on Yves Ulysse Jr in the opening fight of the televised broadcast.
Seldin in a release put out by Golden Boy Promotions was quoted as saying.
“My trainer and I have studied Yves Ulysse and know he is a solid boxer-puncher who fights with intensity and angles… He is as good as anyone in the 140-pound weight class, so it will be a hard-fought, exciting fight. I want to thank my promoter, Joe DeGuardia, and HBO for getting me right back in the ring and back on HBO again so quickly. I want to fight every month like this.”
Local Montreal product Ulysse, Jr. has never fought an opponent with a losing record, and has just one defeat by close split decision.
“It has always been my dream since I started boxing to perform on HBO, the world’s most prestigious television network,” Ulysse said.
“I’m so happy to get the opportunity to do this at home, Dec. 16, and show the whole world what I’m capable of.”
Also on the December 16th card will be a co-main event between Antoine “Action” Douglas and Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan for the WBO Intercontinental Middleweight title.
