Andy Lee-Alex Bunema Bout is Set For Rosemont Rumble

Irish middleweight contender Andy Lee's opponent has been named for his Wednesday, May 18, main event at Hitz Boxing's "Rosemont Rumble" at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.

Lee (25-1, 19 KOs) will face tough veteran Alex "The Technician" Bunema (31-7-2, 17 KOs) in a 10-round battle for the NABF Middleweight Championship.

In his last fight, Lee scored a sensational come-from-behind tenth-round knockout against the previously unbeaten Craig McEwan on HBO. In his long and respectable career, Bunema has fought a long list of world-class opponents and beaten former world champions Roman Karmazin and Vince Phillips.

"It's a real credit to Andy that he's taking on such a tough guy when he could just coast and wait for his title shot," said Hitz Boxing founder, Bobby Hitz. "There are not a lot of fighters left like Andy Lee."

Tickets for the Rosemont Rumble are $100 ringside and $30 g/a AND ARE available through Ticketmaster, the Rosemont Theater Box Office or Fanfueled.com (search Hitz Boxing). Donald E. Stephens Convention Center is located at 5555 N. River Road. All opponents and ticket information will follow shortly. All bouts are subject to change.

Bunema was the guy Martinez fought before Cintron, and effectively setting his career on the path to stardom. Bunema is shop worn as ****, and a step down from mcewan, but still far from a gimme fight, especially since Lee…

Andy Lee will be the clear favorite. Alex is still a tough out though. Not a bad fight. He should fight Jacobs after this.
