Boxing fans will also have an opportunity to mingle with some of the biggest names

unique boxing fan experience for guests who purchase tickets for the June 7thJudah
vs. Seldin fight.  For $50 (plus the purchase of a ticket), guests will receive

Tickets for Judah vs. Seldin are now available at the Turning Stone Box Office in
person or by calling 315.361.7469 and 12:00 p.m. online at Ticketmaster.  Prices
start at only $35, with ringside seats available for $89 and $75.
June 7th’s main event features, Zab “Super” Judah (Brooklyn, NY), a six-time world
champion, and the last undisputed welterweight champion of the world.  The three-time
New York Golden Glove champion made his professional debut at the age of 18, later
holding world titles in three weight classes, capped off by his undisputed welterweight
reign. Judah has defeated some of the most notable names in the business, including,
Micky Ward, Lucas Matthysse and Cory Spinks (Undisputed Welterweight Title), and
fought many other top fighters including Floyd Mayweather, Amir Khan, Danny Garcia
and Miguel Cotto .
Opposing the six-time and former undisputed champion will be New York’s feared knockout
artist, Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin (Shirley, NY).  Born from a tough line
of Jewish-Americans, Seldin won the Ringside Amateur World Championship in 2009.
As a professional, Seldin created buzz throughout New York as a knockout artist
packing the Paramount with his “Hamma Head” fans.  He broke on to the national scene
when he devoured Roberto Ortiz at the Nassau Coliseum in a featured HBO fight. 
One month later, Seldin became the first boxer alongside Hall of Fame world champions,
Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. to fight in featured fights on back to back months
on HBO.  83 percent of Seldin’s wins have come via knockout.
The veteran craftsmanship of former undisputed champion Judah, will have to weather
the storm of the heavy-handed New York brawler in Seldin. On the biggest weekend
in boxing, with many Hall of Famer’s in attendance, #JudahSeldin is bound to set
off fireworks at Turning Stone on June 7th.
In the co-feature bout, James “Buddy” McGirt Jr. (Vero Beach, FL) will look to tip
his hat to his father, James McGirt Sr. who is being inducted into the International
Boxing Hall of Fame during the same weekend, when he takes on tough Frenchman David
Papot (Saint-Nazaire, France).  McGirt compiled an impressive amateur record of
44-4 winning the Sunshine State Games and the Southeastern Regional.  As a professional
McGirt has also found success and has faced some well-regarded fighters in his division,
including, Carlos De Leon Jr., Edwin Rodriguez, and Raymond Joval. His opponent,
undefeated Frenchman David Papot is taking the trip across the Atlantic Ocean with
intentions of ruining the McGirt family weekend. Papot had 102 amateur bouts, 30
of which were with the French National team, earning French National Champion honors
two times.  In 2017 Papot earned the WBA Continental Middleweight Title, and later
that year became the French National Super Welterweight Champion, having since defended
the title three times.
Golden fighter lineage will be on full display in this co-feature bout. McGirt Jr.
intends to cap off an already prolific day for the McGirt family with a victory
at Turning Stone, while David Papot plans to play spoiler, and take another step
towards a world title challenge.
Last year, Turning Stone and the International Boxing Hall of Fame announced a multifaceted
partnership to spotlight the entire region, garnering national attention and boosting
Central New York tourism. The program includes a series of nationally-televised
boxing events at Turning Stone, culminating every year in June with an elaborate
and bigger-than-ever International Boxing Hall of Fame Weekend celebration.
Turning Stone will be announcing additional events for Boxing Hall of Fame Weekend
shortly.  For more information about events that have already been announced, visit
