NEW YORK, NY (January 27, 2013) Friday night at The Paramount in Huntington, New York, a sold out crowd was treated to a sensational night of professional boxing highlighted by career best victories from 2008 Olympian Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade and Long Island fan favorite Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin.
With the eyes of the boxing world watching across the country on ShoBox: The New Generation live on SHOWTIME®, Andrade displayed a full arsenal of world class skills from the opening bell, scoring at will with a piston like jab and multiple count combinations throughout the ten round bout.
Under the guidance of new trainer Virgil Hunter, Andrade’s dominating performance, highlighted by a sixth round knockdown over the gusty Hernandez was the best of his career and solidified his reputation as one of the best junior middleweights in the sport. Scores at the end of the clash were 100-89 on all three judges scorecards.
With the win, the Providence, Rhode Island native improved his undefeated record to 19-0 with thirteen knockouts. Fighting out of Mexico City, Mexico, Hernandez moved to 30-4-0 (20KO’s).
Highlighting the off-TV portion of the sensational card, Cletus “The Hebrew” Hammer Seldin swung big, early and often, stopping Luis Rodriguez in the third round of a terrific, action filled welterweight contest. Seldin hits double digits running his perfect record to 10-0-0 (7KO’s), while Rodriguez falls to 6-7-1(1KO).
