Boyd Melson Interview

I will interview former super welterweight boxing contender, Boyd Melson on Saturday, July 29, 2017. The interview will be featured on an upcoming episode of our biweekly podcast The Weigh-In. Boyd currently serves as an officer in the United States Army Reserve, and is the co-founder of Team Fight to Walk, an organization that was created to increase awareness in boxing of the importance of stem cell research for spinal cord injuries.

As an amateur boxer, Boyd won the 48th World Military Boxing Championship gold medal in the 69 kg. weight class, was a four-time United States Army champion, a three-time NCBA All-American boxer, a four-time West Point Brigade Open Boxing Champion, and received the Colonel Marcus Award. Boyd fought professionally from 2010 to 2016, and won the WBC United States (USNBC) Super Welterweight title in 2015. Boyd retired with an impressive record of 15 wins, two losses, and one draw.
