From Queens NY training at MENDEZ BOXING GYM we bring you Mr. Michael LEE!!
Michael started boxing at Syracuse University through the school's boxing club. Until that time he enjoyed boxing as a spectator, but that was the first time he put on gloves and actually tried the sport.
Michael watched a few Mike Tyson fights growing up and learned of boxing legends like Ali, Frazier and Foreman through his father.
Later in life he developed a stronger passion for boxing, his favorite fighters being Roy Jones, Manny Pacquiao, and Tommy Hearns.
"I have been boxing for a few years on and off and it's always been a goal of mine to compete, but I had never got around to it. The intense preparation with the goal of stepping in the ring and leaving it all in there to win is something that was always appealing to me. I'm glad I have the opportunity to fulfill that goal while raising money for a good cause. I can attest to the positive impact that boxing has had on my life, so I’m glad I can raise money for the Gleason’s Give a Kid a Dream program.“
We thank you for stepping up and we look forward to your bout!
