Alfredo Meli is still disappointed after Friday night’s Celtic title clash at the Waterfront Hall.

Meli and Conrad Cummings gave their all in a ten round war that ended in a majority draw.

And Meli says he should have got his hand raised in victory.

““I honestly do think I won it,” he said.

“But that’s the way it goes. It’s boxing. I thought I out-muscled him.

“I pushed him back and I was bullying him, I was the boss and that’s why I think I won it because I was the boss.

“You win some, you lose some and you draw some. I did myself proud and my family proud and I can hold my head high.

“I’d be up for a rematch anywhere.”

And Meli says he has no intentions of going full-time in the future.

“No chance. I’ve a family and family comes first.

“ It’s just boxing for me. It’s not a life-time job for me, I’m back to work on Monday morning. I’m looking forward to getting back to work now.”
