SALT LAKE CITY, April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- USANA Health Sciences, Inc. (NYSE: USNA), a global nutritional supplements company, today announced that it has partnered with undefeated Top Rank professional boxer, Mike Lee. The up-and-coming light heavyweight's current record sits at an impressive 8-0 with five knockouts, including a fourth round KO at Madison Square Garden, in the Cotto/Margarito undercard, last December.
"We are thrilled to announce Mike as the newest member of the USANA family," said USANA's Chief Communications Officer, Dan Macuga. "Not only is he an exceptional athlete, he's a philanthropist and a hardworking, inspirational individual. He represents the things USANA looks for in an ambassador and we wish him the best on his upcoming fight."
Lee first stepped into the ring as a competitive boxer in 2007 while attending the University of Notre Dame. During his time there, he received Notre Dame's Boxer of the Year Award and was named three-time Bengal Bouts champion. After graduating with a degree in finance, Lee signed with Top Rank Boxing in 2009 and currently trains with the legendary Ronnie Shields in Houston, Texas.
"USANA has been by my side most of my professional career and their products have definitely assisted in my success," said Lee. "My number one goal is to become World Champion and to get there, I have to be both physically and mentally in shape and USANA helps with that. I look forward to working with them and am proud to have them in my corner."
Lee will step back in to the ring June 8th at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas as he faces his first opponent of the year. The fight will be telecast on ESPN2 Friday Night Fights.
USANA also recently partnered with inspirational U.S. Soccer star Charlie Davies, U.S. silver medalist marathon runner Meb Keflezighi, and London Games hopeful, U.S. javelin thrower Mike Hazle.
The company receives several hundred requests each year from athletes wishing to receive NSF and HFL-tested products that USANA insures with a million-dollar Athlete Guarantee.
