Boyd Melson

As a seven year old, all Melson could think about was attending West Point, until reality settled in. Realizing the challenges that came with this Melson would be forced to compete in the boxing world. As a part of the West Point gym class is boxing, all you have to do is not give up. This was something Melson became good at, competing from boxing for a gym class grade to challenging future Olympians who trained for boxing their whole life. Not only did Melson do this while becoming ranked 5th in the world, and winning championships as part of the armed forces. He found his part of dealing with procedures to help those in need, as he takes a deep dive into his journey to MYND and WBC Ambassador.
