NYSAC Profile - Boyd Melson
Boyd “The Rainmaker” Melson’s journey to the squared circle was not typical. And typical is also not the word one would use to describe his career in boxing and how he leverages the sport to give back selflessly to others.
Melson, originally from Brooklyn, is a southpaw junior middleweight boxer who had aspirations of becoming a doctor. In order to achieve this dream, he took his life into his own hands just four days after graduating from high school. He made the decision to pursue his undergraduate education at The United States Military Academy at West Point.
His decision to join the prestigious Academy was for a number of reasons. Melson wanted to proudly serve and defend the country of his birth. Additionally, he recognized that he could get his medical degree financed by the school upon graduation as he intended on applying to medical school in which only two-percent of each United States Military Academy class may proceed to and fully paid for upon completing their prerequisites. With his work ethic, he had no doubt he’d succeed.
