CHICAGO, May 16, 2017 — Undefeated and World Ranked MIKE LEE, (19-0, 10 KO’s), will defend his IBF-USBA Light Heavyweight Title and seek his landmark 20th victory in his hometown of Chicago facing off against AARON “Quiet Storm” QUATTROCCHI, (10-1-1, 5 KO’s) in the 10-round main event on Friday, June 23rd at ‘The Dome at the Ballpark’ in Rosemont.

Advance tickets for the ROSEMONT RUMBLE, presented by Hitz Boxing and Round 3 Productions, priced at $200, $150, $100 and $40, can now be purchased through HitzBoxing.com or by calling 630-400-6380.

‘The Dome at the Ballpark’ is located at 27 Jennie Finch Way, Rosemont, IL 60018 — on Bryn Mawr Avenue, one mile west of River Road in Rosemont. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. CT with the live national telecast on CBS Sports Network starting at 8:00 p.m. CT.

Also featured on the undercard in separate bouts are Chicago fan favorites; light heavyweight MIKE “Hollywood” JIMENEZ, (20-1-1, 14 KO’s) and DONOVAN “Da Bomb” GEORGE, (25-7-2, 22 KO’s). Jimenez will face-off against AARON PRYOR JR. (19-10-2, 12 KO’s) in a rematch of their hotly contested 10-round draw last year.

“I couldn’t be more excited to fight again at home as I battle for my 20th victory,” said Lee, a graduate of the Mendoza School of Business at the University of Notre Dame. “I’ve improved so much over my last three fights in the last year and can’t wait to put on a show for the Chicago fans and on such a tremendous, nationally televised event.”

Ranked #12 by two world title sanctioning bodies, the International Boxing Federation and the World Boxing Council, Lee’s last three opponents have an excellent combined record of 49-7-3. On September 30th, Lee dominated Chris Traietti in Chicago over ten rounds, earning the IBF-USBA Light Heavyweight Title.

Most recently, the heavy-handed Lee won an eight round decision over Justin Thomas on February 16 in Los Angeles where he trains at the famed Wild Card West Boxing Gym under the tutelage of trainer Jamal Abdullah.

The 27-year-old Quattrocchi fighting out of Follansbee, West Virginia was undefeated through his first eleven professional bouts before suffering his only loss in November 2016. Under the bright lights and against a world ranked Lee, Quattrocchi will be looking to jump back in the win column.

“I’m thrilled to have Mike Lee headline this historic night of Chicago boxing,” said Bobby Hitz of Hitz Boxing. “It’s an honor be working with Brad Stephens, the Mayor of Rosemont to bring this sensational nationally televised event to the great boxing fans of Chicago who have always been so supportive of our events.”

“With Mike defending his title, Hollywood in a terrific rematch and Donovan George returning along with a huge undercard I’m putting together, Chicago boxing fans will be treated to a memorable evening of entertainment.”

“It’s great to work with Bobby on this outstanding card,” said Frank Mugnolo of Round 3 Productions. “This event truly captures the fighting spirit of Chicago, ‘toughest fighters, best fans, greatest city in the world.’”
