RENAISSANCE MAN MIKE LEE INCHING CLOSER TO WORLD TITLE SHOT

*Chicago**, Illinois (June 5, 2018)* -There might not be a more
well-rounded fighter on the planet.

Mike Lee (20-0, 11 KOs), who takes on Jose Hernandez (19-3-1, 9 KOs) this
Friday night for the WBO Junior World Light Heavyweight World Title at The
Allstate Arena in Chicago, brings all the intangibles that one would want
in a professional athlete.

The card will be broadcast live on CBS Spots Network (9 PM ET) with an
all-star announce team of International Boxing Hall of Famer Barry
Tompkins and renowned Teddy Atlas.

Lee has not taken the route that most fighters take to get to the door of
competing for a world title.

There isn’t the big name promoter. In fact there is no promoter at all.
In a day when most fighters are afraid to test themselves, Lee’s last five
opponents (Including Hernandez) have a combined record of 78-10-5.

Does Lee, take a vacation or just relax between fight? No he doesn’t, you
have just as much chance to see Lee talking to major corporations or being
a national spokesperson for a major company as you do as seeing him raising
money for cancer stricken children.

Lee also brings a heart and determination into the ring as he battled and
overcame autoimmune disease

“Training camp in Los Angeles has been great. We had a good camp, I am
20-0 for a reason,” said Lee.

“I am not looking past Hernandez, but my dream is to win a a world
championship one day. June 8th is a step towards that. I have everything
in my body and mind towards that, and when I am determined, I am very
difficult to beat.”

When Lee talks about what motivated to speak to companies around the
country, it was that illness that almost derailed his career that came to
mind.

“My career was almost taken away with autoimmune disease, and I wanted to
tell my story. I have been lucky to speak to people and give techniques of
visualization and mindset.”

“I am excited to fight in my hometown with a great crowd. I love fighting
in a bigger venue which is a phenomenal arena. I have waited for this
moment, and I can’t wait for Friday night.”
