Undefeated junior welterweight Brandun Lee looks to continue his winning ways as he faces Pedro Campa this Saturday on Showtime.
Showtime Boxing returns on Saturday night with a special co-main attraction between undefeated junior welterweight contender Brandun Lee (27-0) and veteran Pedro Campa (34-2-1). The 23-year-old Lee looks to continue his undefeated streak as he approaches a potential title shot in the near future.
Lee is like many young fighters with other things going on outside the ring besides the sweet science. He is still in school and pursuing a degree in Criminal Justice. Lee is currently only taking two classes this semester as he focuses on the challenge at hand, which is Campa.
Lee has come under scrutiny as he didn’t look sharp against Zachary Ochoa, suffered a brutal knockdown against Will Madera, and was decent against Diego Luque. In each fight, Lee pulled out the victory, but questions about whether he was ready for the more advanced opponents started to arise. When seeing him live in Washington, D.C., on the Gervonta Davis vs. Hector Garcia card, Lee didn’t seem that enthused, and it looked like he was just going through the motions. When asked about it, Lee told FanSidedMMA, “That fight was more like a sparring match. The main reason why we took that fight was to shake out any cobwebs I may have had from the [Will] Madera fight.”

Although Campa brings the type of experience Lee seeks, he isn’t intimidated and just sees it as another opponent. “Anyone standing in front of me, I just look at them as an opponent. If you put a piece of meat in front of a lion, the lion doesn’t care what kind of meat it is; he’s going to eat it.” Lee continued, “At the end of the day, the work must be done. I had a great training camp along with great sparring, and I’m just looking forward to fighting Pedro Campa.”
Lee looks focused and ready to silence the doubters on Saturday and show he is ready to face the top ten contenders within his division. Lee has set the level of expectation for fans tuning in on Saturday night. “They should expect fireworks. Pedro Campa is coming to fight. He’s a veteran, can take a punch, and he can also give a punch. I’m going to have to be on alert at all times. When I come to fight, I come to win, and I’m going for the knockout. It’s going to be a great night of boxing.”
