Andy Lee

This will be one of the first press conferences for a big fight that will be free to the public. Top Rank and Zanfer Promotions are most likely looking for a way to add more hype to a fight that most people are disappointed with. Tickets for the fight will go on sale on Saturday April 28th.

Lee and Chavez both have very good records and high knock out rate (73% together).

Chavez's record is 45-0-1 with 31 KOs and will be making his first appearance in El Paso since 2006. Since then he has become the WBC middleweight champion of the world so it will be a memorable night for the young Mexican.

Lee believes that he has deserved this fight for a long time and that Team Chavez have been avoiding him ever since he called Chavez Jr out a few years ago.

This will not be one of the best fights of the year as we would have much rather seen Chavez face P4P No.3 Sergio Martinez but that fight looks a long way away. If Andy Lee performs to the best of his ability then we could see a very close fight on June 16th.
