Somers Point super-middleweight Isiah Seldon returns to the ring on Thursday at The Deck in Essington, Pa.

Seldon (7-0, 3 KOs), son of former world heavyweight champion Bruce Seldon, meets Lekan Byfield (3-4-2), of Yonkers, N.Y, in a scheduled six-round bout.

Seldon, 24, ended a 14-month hiatus on April 26 with a four-round, unanimous decision over Tommie Speller (4-4) in Philadelphia. Byfield registered an upset victory Justin Verdin (9-2) less than three weeks ago. Byfield earned a six-round, unanimous decision in Cut Off, La.
