Lee Returns In Esbjerk On Saturday


Irish middleweight contender Andy Lee, 31-2-(22), fights again this Saturday evening against Frenchman Frank Haroche Horta, 34-12- 5-(13), on a Sauerland Promotion event at the Blue Water Dokken Sports Venue, Esbjerk, Denmark.

 

Lee was due to fight Gennady Golovkin on April 26, 2014 at the MSG Theater, New York on HBO Boxing, for the WBA middleweight title, but the fight was called off due to the death of Gennady’s father Gennady Ivanovich Golovkin on February 18 and the boxer’s decision to understandably take some time out of boxing to take care for his family.

 

Lee presently ranked WBC #8, WBA #11 and WBO #12 in the world ranking plans to stay busy and ring sharp as he pursues his ambition to fight for a world title later this year.

 

Horta is a durable opponent and has only been stopped twice in 51 outings over his 8 year professional career.

 

Lee commented following a recdent training session in London ‘I’m really looking forward to fighting on Saturday night; I expect a tough fight and for me to put in a good performance. I have trained hard for this fight and I am ready to win.’

 

The Irishman has also been pencilled in to fight in Cardiff, Wales on a Matchroom Boxing promoted card on May 17.
