With junior welterweight Brandun Lee set to take on Samuel Teah this weekend in a ShoBox: The New Generation main event, Lee talks to reporters about his expectations for the fight as he looks build his brand. Lee says he expects Teah to come with the aggression, but says he’s prepared for exactly that.
“People are saying this is my step-up fight. I know Teah is a veteran and has beaten some decent prospects. I’m looking forward to bringing the best out of him.
“I think Samuel Teah is going to be a pressure fighter. For sparring, I had an Argentinian and a few Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan fighters that put on good pressure. I got great work.
“March 10, I’m here to give the people what they want. People want to see knockouts so that’s what I’m here to do. Every time I get in the ring, I’m learning something new. By me knocking these guys out, of course my confidence is growing each fight but I can’t underestimate anyone.
“Definitely by the end of 2021 I would love to have my hands on some sort of world title. Whether it’s the IBO or WBA world title, Jaron Ennis won a world title and I think it’s almost time for me to go for mine.
“As far as my conditioning goes, I’m sparring for 13 rounds straight. I’m conditioned if I need to turn it on.
“Teah’s never been stopped before. I know he’s going to be aggressive and come forward. He’s a combination puncher and likes to hit the body. Whatever he brings to the table I’m ready to do what I do. The test would be if he took me to later rounds, since I’ve never been past four.”
