According to an April 20 tweet from Star Boxing, Courtney Pennington makes his Star Boxing debut this Thursday at The Paramount in Huntington. Also on the bill for Star Boxing's "Rockin' Fights 13" card, Long Island fan favorite Cletus "The Hebrew Hammer" Seldin returns to action for a headlining tilt against hard-hitting Nicaraguan striker Wilfredo “EL Zurdo” Acuna.
Star Boxing's "Rockin' Fights 13" goes down April 24 at The Paramount in Huntington, Long Island. Doors on fight night open at 7 p.m., with the first bout slated for 7:30 p.m. A stacked undercard precedes the Seldin vs Acuna bout, but it hasn't been released to the public. The venue is located at 370 New York Ave., right in the heart of Huntington Village.
The 27-year-old Seldin (12-0-0, 9 KO's) will be making his eighth appearance at the venue, where his electrifying performances have been a huge part of the tremendous renaissance Star Boxing has built on Long Island over the last two years. Seldin made his highly anticipated comeback on November 22 at The Paramount, dominating veteran Gilbert Venegas over eight rounds in front of a standing room only crowd. Seldin injured his right hand in the win over Venegas and underwent successful hand surgery to repair damage caused during the fight.
As for the 32-year-old Acuna, he's also well-known in the Long Island area. Acuna went toe-to-toe with Long Island superstar Chris Algieri this past September at The Paramount. Acuna may not have been the fan favorite heading into that bout, but he earned the respect of Long Island boxing fans by turning in a crisp performance during that show.
Tickets for "Rockin' Fights 13" start at just $50 and are on sale now through Ticketmaster and The Paramount Box Office. For more information on the fights, fans can check out the Paramount's website at this link.
