Joel De La Paz to an exclusive multi-year promotional contract.
“I feel really great to be working with Star Boxing”, said De La Paz. “Joe DeGuardia has many championship fighters. I look forward to working hard and in a few years I want to fight for a world title.”
Star Boxing’s President, Joe DeGuardia said “I’m delighted to have Joel sign with us. Joel is an exciting fighter who is ready to step his game up in a big way. His fan friendly, aggressive style will shake things up in the already stacked 168 lbs. division. We are all looking forward to a bright future together.”
De La Paz of Atlantic City, NJ has a record of 7-0 with 4 knockouts. Impressively, the super middleweight has not lost a single round as a professional. The proud Puerto Rican looks to continue his country’s tradition of producing dominant world champions. Joel will take the first step in his long awaited return to action when he takes on the rugged Naim Terbunja (8-1) on the undercard of the Delvin Rodriguez vs. Shawn Cameron headliner at “Slugfest at the Sun” at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT on Saturday July 23, 2016. Terbunja is also promoted by Star Boxing.
The additions of De La Paz to the Star Boxing roster mark four promising prospects signed in the last couple of months. Tyrone James, Terrell Bostic and Michael Stoute joined the promotional powerhouse earlier this year and have all competed at the Paramount in Huntington, NY in their first fights under the Star Boxing banner.
Star Boxing returns to Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT on, Saturday, July 23rd for the highly anticipated return of Connecticut’s favorite son at the Sun. The summer bash, Slugfest at the Sun, will feature an exciting night of action beginning at 7:30pm.
Former USBA Welterweight Champion and multi world title challenger Delvin Rodriguez (28-8-4 16KO Danbury, CT), returns to the ring taking on Iraqi war veteran Shawn Cameron (10-1 5KO Bronx, NY) in a 10 round Jr. Middleweight contest.
Rodriguez, who last fought in June 2015, challenged Erislandy Lara for the WBA World Jr. Middleweight title that night, dropping a 12 round decision to the champion.
Rodriguez has fought a who’s who over the course of his long career including such elite fighters as Miguel Cotto, the aforementioned Lara, and Austin Trout, but may be best remembered for his scintillating battle with Pawel Wolak on July 15, 2011, which garnered ‘Fight of the Year” award.
Rodriguez has challenged for the world championship on 3 different occasions and feels he still has something left to prove taking on the hungry and tough, Shawn Cameron.
Cameron, who has just 11 fights under his belt, sees this as the opportunity he has been waiting for. Cameron served 2 tours of duty in Iraq and knows a win over a well-known contender like Delvin Rodriguez will do wonders for his career.

6/18/16, New York- Star Boxing’s Rockin’ Fights took center stage on Friday night (June 17), and WBC Silver International Champion and WBC World #4-ranked Junior Welterweight contender Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin (19-0, 16 KO’s Long Island, NY) extended his unbeaten streak with his 19th consecutive victory, a rousing first round TKO over Jesus Selig (19-4-1, 12 KO’s Douglas, Arizona) at The Paramount in Huntington, New York. Seldin attacked with thrilling ferocity from the get go. He knocked the seasoned Selig to the mat the first time he landed flush to his head. Selig rose but the writing was on the wall as Seldin went in for the kill. Cletus then drilled a wobbly Selig in what will be a highlight reel knockout for many years to come. The referee didn’t bother to count. The 10-round Junior Welterweight main event headlined the 24th edition of the popular series promoted by Joe DeGuardia.
Seldin, the Patchogue product fighting out of Shirley, Long Island, has been sensational in compiling an unblemished 19-0 mark, with 16 of his triumphs coming via highlight reel knockouts. Seldin has won 11 straight and 16 out of 17 at the popular Long Island venue.
