Andy Lee, Irish Kronk middleweight contender, will headline a ‘Pre-St Patrick’s Day Brawl Boxing Event’ this Saturday evening, March 10 at the Suburban Collection Showpiece in Novi, Michigan.
The event is being promoted by Emanuel Steward, Kronk Boxing and will see Lee (27W-1L, 19KOs) defend his NABA Middleweight Championship Title against the durable Mexican Saul Duran (40W-19L, 2D, 33KOs).
The Kronk fighter presently ranked #2 in the WBA and WBO rankings views this bout as a ‘stay busy fight’ as he waits for his opportunity to challenge for a world title later this year.
The event takes place 6 years to the day when the Irishman first made his pro debut at the famous Joe Louis Arena in Detroit on March 10, 2006.
Lee commented “It is important that I stay active to maintain my ring fitness and sharpness. Training has gone well and I am now looking forward to defending my NABA belt.”
The main event will be supported by a crop of young Kronk stars including Tony Harrison, LeAndre White, Jacob Bonas, Ernie Garza and Wade Tolle Jr.
International Boxing Hall of Fame manager and trainer, Emanuel Steward proudly stated “I am very excited about the event; this is the most talented group of youngsters I have had since the days of Tommy Hearns, Hilmer Kenty, Mickey Goodwin, Milton McCrory and Jimmy Paul.”
