Popular Chicago native and Notre Dame graduate Mike Lee’s opponent has been announced for his Friday, July 25, 2014, ring return to the Windy City’s UIC Pavilion.

Scheduled to open the night’s worldwide, live broadcast of ESPN Friday Night Fights in a light heavyweight six-rounder, Lee (12-0, 7 KOs) will face Paul Gonsalves (7-3, 3 KOs) of Hyannis, Massachusetts.

Presented by Warriors Boxing, 8 Count Productions, Seconds Out Promotions and Marines Promotions, the night of world-class professional boxing, entitled “Conquerors”, will also feature rejuvenated welterweight contender Roberto “La Amenaza” Garcia (35-3, 23 KOs) of Weslaco, Texas, taking on hard-hitting and dangerous Breidis “Khanqueror” Prescott (27-5, 20 KOs) of Miami, via Barranquilla, Colombia in the night’s 10-round main event; as well as a 10-round middleweight co-feature between USBA Middleweight Champion and WBA #15, IBF #13, and WBO #11-rated Caleb “Golden” Truax (23-1-2, 14 KOs) of Osseo, Minnesota, and Sonora, Mexico’s Rogelio “Porky” Medina (32-6, 26 KOs).

32-year-old Gonsalves has won three straight fights, and five of his last six. A quick combination puncher with good strength, Gonsalves should be a decent test for Lee and give the huge crowd of Lee-supporting “Domers” something to cheer about.

Lee graduated at the top of his class with a Finance degree from The University of Notre Dame, and is also a Subway spokesperson and philanthropist. This fight will be his first in Chicago since his pro debut in 2010.

Tickets for “Conquerors” are priced at VIP $151, VIP Ringside $101, Mezzanine $51 and General Admission $31 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster (Ticketmaster.com, 1-800-745-3000), the 8 Count Productions Offices: 312-622-7668 or the UIC Pavilion Box Office: 312-413-5740.More information will be available shortly at 8CountProductions.com.
