Top Rank today signed hard-punching Mark Melligen, a super lightweight from Bacolod City, Philippines. Melligen, a southpaw, has a record of 14-1 with 10 knockouts. Bob Arum made the announcement today. Melligen out-slugged rugged Ramon Montano at the Hard Rock Resort & Casino in Las Vegas last Friday night, winning an eight-round decision by scores of 80-72, 79-73 and 78-74. “We were really pleased with Mark’s performance last weekend. He’s young, just 23, and he is improving every fight,” said Arum. Melligen had over 200 amateur bouts. He was a two-time medalist at the Asian Games.
