Lee, didn't do much as an amateur, he fought in Ivy league College bouts. Usually promoters want a guy who done very well as a amateur the more titles the better. Being "white", only does so much, cos there are many white fighters fighting. What makes Lee attractive to a promoter like Top Rank, is his looks, charisma, the school he went to, his story, and abililty to put asses in seats not his ability as a fighter, cos let's face it he is learning on the job.
