Melson Wins Debut

Boyd Melson, a captain in the U.S. Army, outpointed Andrew Jones (0-2-1) last night at the Aviator Sports Complex in Brooklyn, New York. After getting knocked down, Melson came back to win the four round bout by unanimous decision. All three judges scored the contest 38-37.

Melson, who was a renowned amateur, donated his purse for the fight to help fund stem cell research. The 1-0 junior middleweight is next scheduled to enter the ring on December 16 at the Roseland Ballroom in New York, New York.
