Lee Destroys Teah in Three


Power punching prospect Brandun Lee (21-0 19KO’s) displayed his heavy hands once again knocking out Samuel Teah (17-3-1 7KO’s) with a vicious right hand in the 3rd round. Lee not only showed power but also demonstrated a good chin when Teah landed a left hook in the exchange that lead to the knockout. Lee got his 20th knockout victory and has yet to go beyond the 3rd round in his career. The La Quinta native earned the biggest victory of his career and indicated why he is a force in the super lightweight division. 


In the co-main event, Jordan White (10-1 8KO’s) brawled his way to a TKO victory against Misael Lopez (11-0 5KO’s). White looked like the bigger and stronger fighter and he showed it early in the fight when he hurt Lopez in the 2nd round with a right hook. White hurt Lopez again in the 3rd round with a body shot before the round ended. Lopez was making a comeback and landing big body shots that seemed to be slowing down White. In the 6th round White landed a big uppercut that lead to Lopez’s first career knockdown. Lopez was unable to recover and was dropped a second time forcing the referee to waive off the fight.


In a battle of undefeated fighters, Steven Ortiz (11-0 3KO’s) defeated Jeremy Hill (14-0 9KO’s) by unanimous decision. Ortiz used his patients and utilized his jab to keep hill at bay. Hill had his moments in the second half of the fight but it wasn’t enough to overcome Ortiz’s jab. Two judges scored the fight 77-75 and the third judge scored the fight 79-73 all in favor for Ortiz.  


In the opening bout of the night, Victor ‘El Terrible’ Padilla (8-0 7KO’s) overcomes a 1st round controversial knockdown to stop Thomas Velasquez (10-0-1 6KO’s). Padilla went down in the 1st  round on what looked to be a slip, but was ruled a knockdown for Velasquez. In the 5th round, Padilla landed a perfect right hook and followed it with combinations that wobbled and dropped Velasquez for the first time in his career. Padilla continued the pressure after Velasquez beat the count and landed a big combination that forced the referee to stop the fight.
