Boris Ivković (born c. 1964[1]), better known by his stage name Bore Lee, is a Croatian martial arts enthusiast, amateur filmmaker and actor from Sinj.

Shipbuilder by trade and a great fan of Bruce Lee, he studied martial arts from an early age. In 1994 he began displaying his skills on short low budget martial arts films that were recorded on a VHS camera. Gradually, those films became underground sensations in his native town of Sinj and the shooting of these films on city streets became a popular spectacle.

Bore Lee's fame reached Zagreb when a group of four filmmakers - Mario Kovač, Krešimir Pauk, Ivan Ramljak and Andy Kuljiš - decided to make a film with Bore, titled Bore Lee - U Kandžama Velegrada ("In the Claws of the Big Z") in 2004, a low budget martial arts parody that later turned out to be the most popular trash film in Croatian cinema.

In 2005, once again with the same 4 filmmakers and this time with a slightly better low budget, Bore Lee appeared in his 8th film titled "Čuvaj se Sinjske Ruke!" ("Deadly Sinjs!").
