HAMMOND, IN – Built like a 5’ 7” ebony-hued bullfrog on steroids, Indiana super middleweight boxer fights with the subtlety of a blacksmith slamming his hammer down on an iron horseshoe, bludgeoning foes with brute, thudding force with a little science thrown in.

And thus before a lively crowd at the Hammond Civic Center, he dispatched fellow Chicagoan Miguel Hernandez in a rematch of a bout he’d won unanimously in May 2008.

Full Card Set for “The Reckoning” at the Hammond Civic Center

by on Apr.07, 2010, under Boxing News, Press Releases

reckoningposterMERRILLVILLE, IN, April 7, 2010 – In business you find owners knowing and filling in every aspect of their company. For One In A Million Boxing, Inc. President/CEO Tyree Ortiz, he looks to do the same in a very brutal business. On May 7th the soft spoken and friendly Ortiz will change hats once again and step back in the ring where it all started for him just a year ago at the Hammond Civic Center.

After the untimely passing of One In A Million, Inc. President/CEO Octavius C. James, Ortiz decided to hang up his gloves and continue the legacy of boxing that James had brought back to Northwest Indiana. When asked about his decision to leave the ring and run One In A Million Boxing, Inc. Ortiz said, “It was a very difficult, but at the same time a very easy decision for me. Boxing has been a passion of mine since a young age. I have trained and studied the sport for the last 15 years, but only because of Octavius was I able to fulfill my real dream and compete in the sport. Octavius was my mentor, my big brother, and my best friend. He selflessly gave me and so many others a chance to reach our dreams, so though leaving the actual fighting was the hardest thing I had to do, to keep his dream and vision alive was and always will be well worth it to me.” (continue reading…)
