Melson to Fight August 2

Junior middleweight Boyd "Rainmaker" Melson is scheduled to fight on Thursday, August 2 at the Roseland Ballroom in New York, New York. Melson hopes to get back into the win column after an exciting and controversial loss to Delen Parsley in March.

Melson (8-1, 4 KOs), who will fight for the fourth time at Roseland, injured his orbital bone in sparring before a bout scheduled last month. He will donate his purse, as always, to help stem cell research for spinal cord injuries. More information at Justadollarplease.org and Team Fight To Walk which boasts at least 15 boxers among its members, including Parsley.

Melson is scheduled to face Khalik Memminger (6-8-3, 3 KOs). Melson stated, "[Memminger has] been in tough fights and is by far the most experienced professional I have been in the ring with yet. As I do with everything I am passionate about, I have pushed myself hard in camp in preparation for a hard night's work August 2nd." The bout is marked for six rounds.
