Meli finally gets the chance to shine


BELFAST middleweight Alfredo Meli has been afforded the opportunity to step out of the shadow of some of Belfast’s more touted prospects on the ‘This Is It’ Feile Fight Night next month.

Meli has worked his way to 10-0 relatively unnoticed outside the fight family and while he has a respected reputation among those in the know the man with anything but a casual style is a relative unknown to the casual fan.

The 25 year old, however, has been gifted the chance to show what he is about and make a statement of intent on the Falls road August 1 gig.

Meli ends his run of journey man opposition and takes on a fellow prospect in Rhys Pagan on the Tommy McCarthy topped bill.

The Scottish puncher comes to Belfast with a record of 13-2 and enters the bout on the back of a run of five victories.
