Brandun Lee vs Samuel Teah Odds
Odds as of Mar.9
Samuel Teah’s Road to This ShoBox Main Event
Teah enters this outing on the heels of back-to-back victories. His last outing was just over a year ago when he notched a March 7th, 2020 unanimous decision win over Dieumerci Nzau.
Teah fell short in a previous title bid to Tre’Sean Williams for the USA Pennsylvania state super lightweight title. This bout provides a bit of a chance at redemption. Moreover, it provides another opportunity for Teah to bolster his resume with some championship hardware.
Teah will face a notable step up in quality of competition here as he tests skills with the brick-fisted Lee, who has twelve first-round KO wins on his resume.

Conversely for Lee, this also represents a meaningful step up in competition for him. This is a compelling crossroads fight for both men at this juncture in their respective combat careers.
He who wins the IBO intercontinental hardware can do a lot to jettison themselves towards an IBO world title crack should they garner an emphatic victory here.
Brandun Lee’s Quest for 22-0
Brandun Lee has an unblemished professional record and underpins that with an amateur resume of 190 bouts. A notable stat that leaps off the screen is Lee’s 90 percent knockout rate overall as a professional pugilist.
Despite 2020 causing rampant bout and event cancellations due to COVID-19 considerations, Lee was still able to win four bouts through the calendar year.
Lee’s last outing saw him notch a TKO victory in the third round of his December prizefight with Dakota Linger.
While Teah does not have a mindblowing knockout rate in his own right (41 percent), he has an obvious level of durability as he has never been finished as a pro.
This will provide an interesting test for Lee, who has scored twelve consecutive stoppage victories across his pugilistic efforts.
Lee vs Teah Tale of the Tape
|Jimmy Williams, Camilo Prieto, Milton Arauz||Significant Wins||O’Shaquie Foster, Kenneth Sims Jr, Sonny Fredrickson|
The majority of Lee’s KO wins have come inside four rounds but the thought is that the durable Teah will be able to give Lee a few rounds at least.
This contest is scheduled for ten rounds, but I do not see it going the distance. I think there’s good value on prop bets centered around this contest not going the distance and also for Lee winning by TKO or KO.
The durability of Teah makes me a little bullish on going with a specific prop bet on the group of rounds the fight ends, but I do see him getting halted inside the distance when Lee vs Teah goes down.
Pick: Brandun Lee (-1400)
