Yves Ulysse: Everyone Thought I'd Get Beat - But Speed Kills!

Place Bell, Canada - Yves Ulysse, Jr. (14-1, 9 KOs) scored a wide unanimous decision victory against Cletus "The Hebrew Hammer" Seldin (21-1, 17 KOs) across 10 rounds of super lightweight action. Ulysse scored a knockdown in each of the first three rounds, and followed that explosive opening with a veritable boxing lesson for the next seven rounds. All judges scored the fight 99-88 in favor of Ulysse.

"I was the underdog," said Ulysse. "Everyone thought that I was in for a beating, and look at what happened. I told you that my moment was coming. Speed kills! The sky is the limit!"

"Yves Ulysse is a good fighter but he is not exciting," said Seldin. "I was not expecting him to run that much. I thought he would come to fight coming from a decision lost. I showed my thoroughness and tried to finish strong but it was impossible because of all the running."

Rising super featherweight star Ryan "Kingry" Garcia (13-0, 12 KOs) of Victorville, Calif. stopped the experienced southpaw Noe Martinez (10-10-2, 6 KOs) of Michoacan, Mexico via TKO in the final round of a scheduled eight-rounder.

"It was a great experience for me," said Garcia. "I went eight rounds. I fought through adversity for the first time, and I felt like I pulled through it. I showed the true colors of a champion, and I even gave the fans a knockout in the last round because I always put it all on the line for the fans."

[QUOTE=Mammoth;18342339]Was that Claggett loss super clear? I haven't seen that fight but I heard it was close.[/QUOTE] One judge had it for Ulysse, but the other two went Claggett - either scorecard for Claggett would have been acceptable but Ulysse…

I have no idea how Seldin was the favourite for this fight. He was by and far one of the worst fighters I've ever seen.
