Result: Lee Wins by TKO in Round 4

Detail: There were a few lulls in action that saw the pumped-up crowd here get a little restless, but by the time the fight ended, everyone was cheering. Why? Because Notre Dame grad Lee put Medina away in emphatic – and violent – fashion. Indeed, the popular prospect (he’s already a pitchman for Subway restaurants) was on the offense the entire bout, stalking and connecting against Medina with an alarming frequency. Seemingly every shot Lee fired caught his man flush in the face. (Lee’s body work was minimal.) Shaky from the beating he’d taken, Medina crumpled like a Slinky when Lee cracked him with a clean overhand right to the jaw. The ref called it at 55 seconds of Round 4.
