Welterweight Cletus "Da Hamma" Seldin kept his impressive knockout streak alive last night with a win over Jonathan Cuba at the Paramount Theatre in Huntington, New York. Seldin stopped his opponent in the third round moving his record to 11-0 and earning his ninth knockout. Cuba falls to 6-5-1 with 4 knockouts.
Seldin, who weighed 142.5 pounds for this fight, had the crowd behind him as he marched to the ring in his customary purple trunks. Cuba, who was 141 pounds, was valiant during the contest as blood began to trickle from above his left eye. But an overhand right, Da Hamma's signature punch, ended the night for Cuba in the third round.
Seldin now has stopped his last eight opponents. Five of them had a winning record going into their clash with Cletus. Six of the contests took place at the Paramount Theatre.
