Unlike many Jewish boxers, Boyd Melson does not feature a Magen David on his trunks.

He has an image of a wheelchair.

Melson, 29, a junior middleweight who will fight Zack Schumack of St. Paul on Wednesday, July 20 at the Oceana Theater in Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach neighborhood (1029 Brighton Beach Avenue), donates the money he earns in boxing to stem cell research.
