Melson Adds Another Win

In a match in which both fighters came in just over the junior middleweight limit, Boyd Melson controlled his opponent Russ Niggemyer on route to an easy unanimous decision in their six round bout tonight at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

A southpaw, Melson used his lead hand in cruising to the win on the scorecards. The judges had the fight 60-53, 60-54, 59-55. Melson raised his mark to 6-0 with three KOs. Niggemyer, a 30 year old from Ohio, fell to 2-4 with two KOs.

Melson, who has donated each of his six pro boxing purses to spinal cord injury research, received some publicity on The Ring's website this past week.
