The March 10 edition of ShoBox: The New Generation is fully set, with 140-pound prospect Brandun Lee returning in the main event against Samuel Teah live on Showtime (9 pm ET).
Lee (21-0, 19 KO) has started to make some waves on the series, and has managed to stay pretty busy over the last year. You might recall that the 21-year-old was in the main event of the final live boxing show we had for about three months on the weekend that COVID started shutting things down in the U.S. last March, fighting in an empty room in Hinckley, Minn., and stopping Camilo Prieto in three rounds.
He’s since beaten Jimmy Williams (KO-1) and Dakota Linger (TKO-3) on Showtime cards in October and December, and now returns to ShoBox.
“I’ve just been training in La Quinta, staying safe and healthy and focusing on what I need to do in order to have another impressive performance,” said Lee. “I see that Teah is a good inside puncher and he has good speed. He’s a volume puncher but other than that, I don’t see much that I shouldn’t be able to handle. I’m super excited to be returning to ShoBox in the main event so that my fans can see me live on TV, because the fans want to see knockouts so that’s what I’m going to give them.”
The 33-year-old Teah (17-3-1, 7 KO) is a veteran of the ShoBox series and a veteran in general. Born in Liberia and fighting out of Philadelphia, Teah has had his ups and downs over the years but has never been stopped and represents a nice next step for Lee. He’s won his last two fights, but will have been out of the ring a year when he steps in next week.
“I don’t mind being the underdog and it won’t be the first time for me,” Teah said. “I have ShoBox wins against O’Shaquie Foster and Kenneth Sims Jr, and I always seem to perform better when the lights and cameras are focused on me. I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
Lee-Teah will be set for 10 rounds, and a trio of eight-round fights will also be on the broadcast.
Mexican-American junior lightweight prospect Misael Lopez (11-0, 5 KO) will take onJordan White (10-1, 8 KO); lightweights Steven Ortiz (11-0, 3 KO) and Jeremy Hill (14-0, 9 KO) will put their “0s” on the line; and Victor Padilla (8-0, 7 KO) will meet Thomas Velasquez (10-0-1, 6 KO) in another lightweight bout.
Bad Left Hook will have live coverage for ShoBox: Lee vs Teah on Wednesday, Mar. 10, starting at 9 pm ET on Showtime.
