Notre Dame grad Mike Lee excited for Madison Square Garden debut

NEW YORK -- Rising light heavyweight prospect Mike Lee (7-0, 4 KOs) paid a visit to the SI offices ahead of Saturday's fight against Allen Medina on the Miguel Cotto-Antonio Margarito undercard.

Lee, who graduated from Notre Dame with a 3.8 grade point average and a degree in finance, turned down job offers from Wall Street to pursue a career in prizefighting -- and so far the results have been promising.

A native of Chicago, Lee's star is beginning to take flight as his career moves forward. He's won four fights in 2011, including a September victory over Jacob Stiers on the Notre Dame campus. He starred in a series of Subway commercials and draws noticeable masses of Fighting Irish fans to his fights.

While Lee's fight Saturday with Medina isn't slated for HBO's pay-per-view telecast, SI.com will be live-streaming the non-televised bouts ahead of the 9 p.m. ET start time.
