Alfredo Meli given all-clear after scan scare

The British Boxing Board of Control have cleared Belfast middleweight Fredo Meli to continue fighting.

The Immaculata boxer had been pulled from his Commonwealth title fight with Sam Sheedy in April due to irregularities with his brain scan.

Taken six weeks before the Sheedy fight, the results of the scan were only revealed two days before the fight and, requiring a second opinion, and with the safety of the boxer being paramount, the bout was called off.

However, the results of the second scan have given the 26 year old the all-clear to continue fighting.

Meli [11(3)-0-1] will want to get straight back into big fights, having hugely impressed onlookers in his draw with Cyclone Promotions star Conrad Cummings in a Celtic title clash last November at the Waterfront Hall.
