Brandun Lee Madison Square Garden fight canceled due to Main Card weight issue

La Quinta native Brandun Lee's August 6th fight at Madison Square Garden is now canceled.

Lee was set to fight Will Madrea on the undercard of Jake Paul and Hasim Rahman Jr, but Rahman failed to make weight and Showtime Boxing was forced to call off the entire event.

"It's an unfortunate situation that the whole show got canceled. For the past 8 weeks i have been working out 2-3 times a day so i can be 110 percent prepared for my fight," Lee told News Channel 3. "But the way I look at it everything happens for a reason. Showtime should be announcing my next fight date sometime next week. Stay tuned."  

Lee, (25-0, 22 KOs), finished camp at the Diaz brothers gym in Indio on Friday and was set to leave in the next few days for New York.
