Third year undefeated Super-Lightweight prospect 🇺🇸Brandun Lee (18-0-0, 16KO) looks to continue his climb towards contender status Friday night, when he headlines a Shobox: The New Generation card from Hinckley, Minnesota, going up against 🇺🇸Camilo Prieto (15-2-0, 9KO).
Lee is still honing his skills, but is quickly developing a reputation as a hard hitting action fighter, taking 89% of his opposition out before the final bell, eleven in the first round. While he has been able to provide lots of excitement in the ring, he has made it clear that he has to stay poised when he has his man hurt and not burn through his energy trying to land the kill shot, or as he simply puts it “not hit the NOS”.
The 20 year old Korean-American, who posted an amateur record of 196-5 with a 2015 Junior Nationals Championship kicked off his 2020 campaign in January, stopping Mexico’s Miguel Zamudio in the first round in a Shobox card from Sloane, Iowa. This followed up a year in 2019 where he took out four of his five opponents in the first round, Nicaragua’s Milton Arauz being the only one to make it to the second round, where he would eventually fall.
Friend and rising Welterweight Jaron “Boots” Ennis has heaped a ton of praise towards Lee and his abilities.
“Brandun is a beast. He’s a phenomenal fighter and he’s going to put on a show Friday night. I think he’ll be able to show boxing fans all his skills. He’s a monster. Him being a calm and relaxed fighter sets him apart. He’s really smart as well and has great ring IQ, but you can’t forget about his power because he has the ability to end fights early.”
Friday night, Lee will take on Miami’s Camilo Prieto in a 10 round Super-Lightweight bout. For both men this will be the first time either has been in a scheduled 10 round bout and the first over six for Prieto. Prieto went 3-0 in 2019 winning two by six round decision and one by fourth round technical decision, but this will be the 33 year old Prieto’s first fight of 2020.
