Lee’s win was featured on the undercard to the highly anticipated Super Welterweight World Championship between Manny Pacquiao and Antonio Margarito. With the win, the 23 year old Lee improved to 3-0-0 (2KO’s).
Utilizing a piston like jab, Lee took control of the fight from the outset, battering Debow. Adding heavy handed overhand rights, Lee trapped Debow in a neutral corner dropping him hard with a left hook, overhand right combination to the head.
With Debow badly hurt, the referee stopped the bout at the 1:33 mark of the initial stanza.
“We worked on distance in the gym with my long reach being an advantage. I took my time but it seemed like I had him hurt right off the bat” said Lee. “My jab was a key as it set the tone and than I was able to truly utilize my power shots.”
“I’m very happy with my performance and I’m ready to get right back in the ring.”
Said trainer Ronnie Shields, ‘I’m very happy, Mike continues to progress and looked sharp tonight. He took his time and did a great job.”
Lee graduated from the University Of Notre Dame in 2009 at the “top of his class”, with a degree in finance.
