    Brandun Lee is the most exotic of the promising junior welterweight prospects and the 21-year-old, up-and-comer sure can crack. Tonight at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut, the undefeated Lee turned in another impressive showing, whacking out Samuel Teah in the third round. It was Lee's 20th knockout in 22 pro starts. Lee vs. Teah was the featured bout of a ShoBox quadrupleheader.

    In the third round, Lee put Teah on the canvas with a hard three-punch combination. When Teah arose, he left himself wide open. A brutal right hand knocked him on his back and the referee didn't bother to count.

    Heading in, the 33-year-old Liberia-born Teah, who brought a 17-3-1 record, hadn't previously been stopped and purportedly had never even been knocked down. Raised by a Korean father and a Mexican mother in the California desert town of La Quinta, Brandun Lee, reputedly 181-9 as an amateur, has answered the bell as a pro for only 41 rounds. With 12 first-round knockouts to his credit, he is a smaller, west coast version of Edgar Berlanga.

    Other Bouts

    In an entertaining back-and-forth fight in the 130-pound class, Jordan White (10-2, 9 KOs) produced a mild upset with a sixth-round stoppage of previously undefeated Misael Lopez (11-1). White hurt Lopez in the third-round, but Lopez came back and was out-working him when the roof fell in. White had him down twice in the sixth before the fight was halted. It’s back to the drawing board for Denver’s Lopez who is co-managed by Jamel Herring and promoted by Lou DiBella.

    In an 8-round lightweight contest, Philadelphia’s Steven Ortiz won a unanimous decision over New Orleans Jeremy Hill. The scores were 79-73 and 77-75 twice.

    Ortiz (12-0, 3 KOs) lacks a big punch, but he had too much class for Hill and made a nice showing considering that this was his first fight in 18 months. Hill came in 14-0, but only five his previous opponents had winning records.

    Lightweight Victor Padilla, a 22-year-old southpaw from Berlin, NY, by way of Puerto Rico, got off the deck to stop Thomas Valasquez in the fifth round. Valasquez put Padilla on the canvas in the opening round with a short right hand, but Padilla was more surprised than hurt and it didn’t take him long to gain the upper hand. He returned the favor in the fifth, decking Valasquez with a combination climaxed by a hard left hook. Valasquez beat the count, but Padilla tagged him with a volley of unanswered punches, forcing referee Danny Schiavone to waive it off. Padilla improves to 9-0 (8). It was the first pro loss for Philadelphia’s Valasquez (10-1-1).

    Also

    In an off-TV fight slated for eight rounds, 20-year-old Atlanta welterweight Brian Norman Jr, (19-0, 16 KOs) scored a fifth-round stoppage of San Antonio’s Benjamin Whitaker (16-5). A second-generation prizefighter, Norman turned pro at age 17 and had his early fights in Mexico.
