‘This is my sixth fight with Jamal, everything is ramped up and I’m learning so much each day at the gym. We have a very strong chemistry and he’s great at getting the best out of me. Every fight I’m getting better.”

“Being able to go a full 10 rounds for the first time at my last fight in Chicago was a huge confidence booster. I’m getting more and more experience, it’s so important to get more rounds under your belt.”

“I’ve only seen a little of Quattrocchi on film, it’s important that I control the fight and do what I do best and I’m confident I’ll be victorious.”

“’Going For 20-0’ sought of crept up on me, it’s an awesome achievement and a huge milestone.  I completely understand the magnitude of it and while I’m solely focused on Quattrocchi for September 15, I’m also looking forward to a victory leading to bigger fights.”

“The light heavyweight division is hot right now and it’s great to see all the action in the weight division. I want to fight for a world title as soon as possible.”

“Fighting at home for my 20th fight means a great deal to me, I made my pro debut in Chicago and it’s terrific to return for this milestone. It seems like yesterday I was fighting to be 1 and 0, now I’m fighting to be 20 and 0.”

Training at the Wild Card West Boxing Gym in Santa Monica, California, Lee will be fighting for the second time in Chicago over the last 12 months. On September 30, 2016, Lee won a dominant ten round decision over Chris Traietti earning the USBA-IBF Light Heavyweight Title.

A graduate of the Mendoza School of Business at the University of Notre Dame, Lee followed up the title victory with an eight round decision over Justin Thomas on February 16, 2017, in Costa Mesa, California.

The 27-year-old Quattrocchi fighting out of Follansbee, West Virginia was undefeated through his first eleven professional bouts before suffering his only loss in November 2016. Under the bright lights and against a world ranked Lee, Quattrocchi will be looking to jump back in the win column.

‘The Dome at the Ballpark’ is located at 27 Jennie Finch Way, Rosemont, IL 60018 -- on Bryn Mawr Avenue, one mile west of River Road in Rosemont. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. CT with the first bell at 7:00 p.m. CT. Free parking is available onsite.

An exciting undercard will be announced in the near future.
