Biography and career[edit]

Su Hwan Lee made his K-1 MAX debut against Remigijus Morkevičius in 2005 at K-1 Fighting Network Korea MAX 2005. Su Hwan Lee came into this fight holding a number of local honours such as being the reigning MBC ESPN Young-Ji Medicine Cup champion but found Morkevičius a higher level of opponent than what he was used to - losing by knockout in the second round. Lee would return to action the following year at the K-1 Fighting Network KHAN 2006 in Busan where he would reach the final, losing to Chi Bin Lim by technical knockout and missing out at a place at the K-1 World MAX 2006 World Tournament Open. He would finish the year strongly, winning two Super Fights and go 4 and 1 for 2006.

2007 would be a successful year for Lee. He won the K-1 Fighting Network KHAN 2007 in Seoul tournament gaining revenge on Chi Bin Lim and qualified for the K-1 World MAX 2007 Final Elimination. Lee faced Artur Kyshenko at this event but lost by knockout. His performance, however, earned him a Super Fight place at the K-1 World MAX 2007 World Final. Lee would win this fight and finish 2007 with a 3 and 1 record. Su Hwan Lee had a disappointing 2008 - he could only make the semi finals at the K-1 Asia MAX 2008 in Seoul Asia Tournament losing to K. MAX by majority decision. He had one other fight that year - a win - and finished with a 2 and 1 record.

In 2009 Lee managed to reach the final of the K-1 Award & MAX Korea 2009 event, losing to nemesis Chi Bin Lim by knockout. Despite his loss, Lee would be invited to the K-1 World MAX 2009 Final 16 as a reservist. He would lose this fight and taking into consideration Super Fight results (a loss against Albert Kraus and an excellent win against Xan Yu) would finish 2009 with a 3 and 3 record. In 2010 Lee won two fights against Japanese opposition prior to being invited to the K-1 World MAX 2010 Final 16 - Part 2 for a chance of qualifying for that year's final. He was unable to proceed after being knocked out in devastating fashion by popular K-1 MAX veteran Gago Drago.

On December 17, 2012, Lee faced Danilo Zanolini for the HEAT Middleweight (-70 kg) Championship but was knocked out in the second round.[2]
