Brian Busto
Manager / Marketing
My experience in management started in the early 90’s when I started and ran small businesses from Import/Export and Marine Mechanical Repairs. I went on to study in computer science while working at Newsday. During my tenure at Newsday I moved into the IT department for the Transportation department creating software and handling technical issues with the systems. In 1996 I started my own IT company with 2 clients in the basement of my house. In 2016 I have 400 clients over 4 million in revenue. My company has 18 employees and has successfully grown 20% per year since 2007.

I also have since started an IT security company and a software development company overseas. My passion for business success drives me. I started working with Cletus in September 2014, initially not knowing how much fun and excitement surrounds boxing as a whole. I truly am blessed to be managing such a great fighter where the sky is the limit. I am looking forward to the adventures ahead and growing the brand of Cletus into a huge success. Marketing and growth are where I succeed and the right timing is most important. To make the right moves at the right time = success.

Joseph Seldin
Cut Man / M.D., M.S.
Boxing is the sport of life; at any time things can drastically change. Just as a great fighter needs to be dynamic in the ring so does the members of his corner. Fortunately for Cletus, his older brother Joseph Seldin is a big part of his team. And just as many individuals rely on their family for help and guidance in life Joseph is always prepared in the corner. “Joey” or “Doc” as many people call him was the 1st true supporter of Cletus urging him to pursue a career in fighting. In the beginning stages of Cletus career, before he was fighting to sold out events and packed crowds shouting “Hamma”, Joey recalls going to many fights in places such as the Paradise Theater on the grand concourse of the Bronx. Back then big brother was the only person in the crowd shouting his name. Joey likes to joke about being the under-achiever of the family, having a Champion-Boxer, as a little brother would be an understatement.

As natural as Cletus sculpts a career in boxing so too does Joey but in a much different way. Joey doesn't throw bombs in the ring he throws them at the books. Joey is an academic success as well as an athletic performance and sport nutrition guru. This is what Joey combines to bring to the table giving Cletus the best possible team. With a Masters of Human Nutrition from Columbia University and soon to be starting his residency training after completing his Medical Doctorate boast the knowledge of Joey and the success of the brothers. With an atypical background compared to many in the sport of boxing Joey’s versatile approach to gives his brothers training the edge compared to his opponents.
