Unbeaten fighters will collide when Danny Dignum faces Alfredo Meli on a huge #MTKFightNight at the Brentwood Centre on March 7.

The event will be live in the US on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank, and worldwide on IFL TV, and sees Dignum (12-0, 6 KOs) defend his WBO European middleweight belt against Meli (17-0-1, 5 KOs).

Dignum said: “I’m really looking forward to this fight. Alfredo has a very good record on paper so it’s a real 50/50 bout.

“I’ve not seen anything of him to be honest. My coach watched his last fight and said he comes forward a lot and has a high work rate which could suit me, as I like someone that comes forward.

“His last opponent was a good fighter so he’s been in there with some good opposition and he also boxed Conrad Cummings a few years back. I won’t be taking anything away from both of our results with Cummings as his fight was a long time ago, so I’m preparing for my hardest fight to date.”

Meli added: “I’m really looking forward to this fight with Danny Dignum. He has the WBO European title so a win here can catapult me high into the WBO rankings, so it’s a great opportunity.

“I was pleased with the win in my last fight against an unbeaten fighter. It was a massive card to be a part of in Belfast and now I’m excited to compete on another huge #MTKFightNight.”

It is the latest massive #MTKFightNight to take place at the Brentwood Centre, with a number of huge names competing at the venue throughout 2019.
