Meli fights for the second time in a week as Dee Taggart returns

ALFREDO Meli will fight for the second time in a week as Dee Taggart makes a return to the ring on Saturday night.

The Belfast middleweight prospect takes on the Omagh native at the Holiday Inn just eight days after he defeated Dan Blackwell on points at the same venue. The 24 year old will be looking to push his record to 8-0 before taking a summer break.

“It is great to be active and hopefully I will get another win on my record. I don’t know too much about Taggert but I am expecting a tough fight,” Meli told the Belfast Newsletter.

“I was pleased with my performance against Blackwell and I will look to build on that,” he added.

Meanwhile Taggart makes a surprise comeback to the ring. The 32 year old hasn’t fought since 2011 when he was stopped by journey man Sid Razak.
