Montreal’s Yves Ulysse Jr. got back on track with a dominant performance over undefeated Cletus ‘The Hebrew Hammer’ Seldin on the Lemieux vs. Sanders undercard Saturday night in Laval, QC.

Ulysse (15-1, 9 KO) looked extremely sharp after dropping a ten-round decision only seven weeks ago to fellow Canadian Steve ‘The Dragon’ Claggett.

Seldin (21-1, 17 KO), of Brookhaven NY, looked completely outclassed from the opening bell and was knocked down in each of the first three rounds as Ulysse was able tag him with hard right hands. Ulysse used his slick movement and counterpunching ability to land flashy power shots while Seldin was unable to mount any effective offense of his own and was largely limited to following his opponent around the ring and eating counter right hands and uppercuts.

In Round 7 Seldin grew visibly frustrated with Ulysse’s movement and tried to clown his opponent into standing still for him, but Ulysse was content to dominate the fight from range. Seldin came out hard at the start of Round 8, but Ulysse soon took over and dominated most of the round with pinpoint accuracy. Ulysse pressed for the stoppage in Round 10, bouncing Seldin’s head all over the ring with power shots, but Seldin was able to hang on to hear the final bell.

All three judges scored the bout 99-88 for Ulysse Jr.
