Two Jewish boxers appeared on the same card last week (3/31/2012) at the Paramount Theater in Huntington, N.Y., and both won their bouts. Two days later (4/2/2012), another Jewish fighter reigned in Woodland Hills, Calif.

Cletus Seldin, a 25-year-old welterweight fighting at 143 pounds, raised his record to 7-0 with a 2nd-round victory over Marcus Hall (5-5-1). He knocked Hall down twice in the round before referee Pete Santiago stopped the fight. According to, Seldin — who was named after ex-New York Yankees 3B Clete Boyer — took up boxing at age 22.

Also fighting that night was Israeli middleweight Danny Netzer (2-0), who earned a decision over Steven Tyner (2-4-1). says Netzer (160 pounds) is scheduled for two more fights this month, in Ontario, Canada, and Panama City, Panama.

At the Warner Center Marriott in Woodland Hills, welterweight Zachary “Kid Yamaka” Wohlman (3-0) earned his first career knockout in a 1st-round win over Clifford McPherson (2-9-1). The fight lasted just 1:44. Wohlman fought at 146 pounds.
