Melson to Appear on Ring City USA

Boyd "Rainmaker" Melson will be featured on Ring City USA's West Point edition tomorrow: Thursday, April 22. Melson graduated from West Point in 2003. A decorated amateur, he boxed professionally from 2010-2016. The southpaw amassed a record of 15-2-1 with 4 KOs during his time in the paid ranks.

During his career, Boyd promoted a non-profit organization he co-founded called Team Fight to Walk, which aimed to spread awareness and develop a cure for spinal cord injuries. After retiring from the ring, Melson has undertaken numerous endeavors which include an aborted run for the U.S. Congress and assisting Tony Milch's Gloves and Doves project. Boyd is also an active army reservist.

Ring City USA will air live at 9 pm Eastern time in the United States on NBCSports. The card will feature three fights headlined by a clash between Jelena Mrdjenovich and Erika Cruz Hernandez.
