The 21-year-old Lee (22-0, 20 KOs), a college junior from La Quinta, Calif., knocked down the veteran Teah (17-4-1, 7 KOs) for the first time in his career with a powerful combination, which was followed by a massive right hand that knocked Philadelphia’s Teah out cold ending the fight at 1:43 of the third round.
Following the knockout blow, ShoBox play-by-play announcer Barry Tompkins said, “That was a case of being over before it was over.”
Fellow International Boxing Hall of Famer Steve Farhood added, “This puts (Lee) at a different level now.”
Following the telecast, Farhood added: “I think it’s too early to call him a contender, but there are so many remarkable young fighters in boxing today around 135, 140 (pounds). He now becomes one to watch. Everything to this point was nice, but this was really impressive and made him a special prospect.”
In the prelude to the main event, super featherweight prospect Jordan White (11-1, 9 KOs) scored an impressive sixth-round technical knockout victory over previously undefeated Misael Lopez (11-1, 5 KOs) in an all-action fight scheduled for eight rounds.
A devastating overhand right hand by Maryland’s White knocked down Colorado’s Lopez with 45 seconds remaining in the sixth round. Lopez hit the floor again moments later after a barrage of power punches that sent Lopez to the canvas once again. The 24-year-old prospect rose to his feet to beat the count before the fight was officially stopped at 2:40 of the sixth round.
