Lee was able to recover and get the unanimous decision win but he felt like he did need to work on his defense a bit when he gets back home.
“It’s something that I haven’t experienced before as a professional, but all great fighters get hurt or dropped at least once in THEIR career. I recover mentally real fast, but as far as getting my rhythm it like a round.
I saw the highlight. Of course. Keep on my left hand up. Of course, I know when I go back home I’m going to hear about it from my mom”
Lee feels like his experience helped him keep his composure and come back in the fight.
“It shows I have a lot of experience and that’s something I would say because a lot of fighters would be down for the rest of the fight or they’d be scared. I started boxing and going forward, but I was still in the fight and still wanted to fight”
