Lee wins on points in Dublin

Limerick boxer Andy Lee has won his first fight back since last Julys win at the University of Limerick against Willie Gibbs.

Tonight the 24 year old had to go all the way to points to beat German fighter Alex Sipos at the O2 arena in Dublin. The fight was on the undercard of Dubliner Bernard Dunnes world title fight with Ricardo Cordoba.

Lee showed the ring rust and worried his corner when he sustained a cut above his right eye in Round 1. Lee did recover and was able to floor Sipos in Round 6. The Castleconnell man was taken all the way to points where he won 91 – 99.
