Alfredo Meli has done everything asked of him so far as a professional prizefighter. Six wins out of six, two knockouts and a growing fan base all prove that the Immaculata star is ticking each box as he moves forward.
“I’m out on June 6 and we are hoping for June 14 too,” enthused Meli after the bout.
“Hopefully I can keep the victories coming and get moving up those rankings. All of my team were happy with another win under the belt and I’m 6-0 now so I just need to keep going and get seven and eight in before the summer and then back on to some hard training. He was a tough operator and getting another win is the most important thing.”
Opponent on the night, Samet Hyuseinov, may not have offered much in an offensive capacity but the heavily-tattooed Bulgarian took his lumps for four rounds without complaint. Alfredo appears to be stepping down on his punches and maturing nicely in to an all-round boxer capable of fighting for titles in the near future.
“I’ve always been aggressive in all of my fights, that’s my style,” he insisted. “He (Hyuseinov) wasn’t physically that strong but he must have been tough enough because he took some shots and dished a few out so it was a good, even scrap. It’s all about taking it fight-by-fight, win-by-win but hopefully we can go for titles before the end of the year and upgrade the record.”
Meli will indeed fight on that June 6 Holiday Inn show against tough journeyman Dan Blackwell. To see more of the 23-year-old in action, check out brief footage of his pro debut below (Meli is wearing the sky blue shorts).
