Alfredo Meli has been given a golden opportunity to get his hands on the Commonwealthn title on April 30.

The 25 year old will fight prospect Sam Sheedy (16-1) for the light middleweight belt in Sheffield.

Meli impressed in his last outing as he took Conrad Cummings the whole way at the Waterfront Hall to claim a draw in their Celtic title encounter.
