ROSEMONT, IL — On Friday night at The Dome at the Ballpark in Rosemont, IL, undefeated light heavyweight contender and hometown favorite Mike Lee ( 20-0, 11 KO, Chicago) stopped Aaron Quattrocchi (10-2-1, 5 KO, Follansbee, WV) with a decisive quick TKO at 2:32 of Round 1. Lee knocked down Quattrocchi twice in the round. Right after the second knockdown, Mike Lee made quick work of it, pummeling Quattrocchi against the ropes when the referee stopped the fight.

After the fight, acclaimed veteran sportscaster Al Bernstein, who was celebrating his 67th birthday, interviewed Mike Lee in the ring and asked him if he was ready at age 30 to fight the top guys. Lee responded “yes” and that it was very important to him to fight a higher ranked fighter. Hopefully, Mike Lee will have the opportunity soon. The fight was aired live on CBS Sports Network and marks the second fight card held at The Dome at the Ballpark. (continue reading…)
