event_main_img2MERRILLVILLE, IN, February 17, 2010 – Training injuries have hit two of the fighters for “Fight Night 2010.” Shay Mobley had incurred an injury this last week during training for his upcoming bout with Darnell Wilson removing Mobley from the bout. When I asked about the fight, Mobley stated, “I was really looking forward to getting back in the ring this year, but I will continue to keep my head up and recover and get ready for the next event.” Due to Mobley’s injury, undefeated Middleweight Orphius Waite (5-0, 3KO’s) will take Mobley’s place against Wilson (8-1, 6KO’s).

Waite, who is coming off an ankle injury that removed him from the One In A Million Boxing Nov. 13th Fight Card, jumped at the opportunity to fight, “I stay in the gym ready to fight for just this kind of situation, if I guy falls out I am ready to go on a day’s notice if I need to. Wilson is going to be a very tough opponent, but that’s what I am here to do is to prove that I am the best and beating Wilson who is (8-1) is a great sign I am on my way.”

In another exciting scheduled matchup Josh Crouch (5-0, 5KO’s) of Schererville, Indiana, was scheduled to face tough ring veteran Anthony Shuler (20-6, 14KO’s), but due to an arm injury Anthony Shuler has been removed from the bout and replaced by another tough prospect the undefeated Foster Nkodo (4-0, 1KO). Nkodo, a top amateur prospect from Cameroon, has already defeated other undefeated prospects in his professional career, but Crouch is not waivered by his change of opponent. “This is a way more exciting fight for me,” said Crouch, “just the thought when the announcer says the line, ‘SOMEBODY’S O HAS TO GO!!!!’ I get chills, that is what boxing is all about to me and unlike Shuler who has tasted defeat Nkodo and I have not lost as professionals, so we both have that duty of protecting our perfect records.”

“This card has shaped up to be the best One In A Million Boxing card we have ever done!” said OIAMB President Tyree Ortiz. “From top to bottom we have the best matchups possible and every one of the fans’ favorite fighters is in the biggest tests of their careers that fight. Anyone who has not watched a boxing match before, show up February 26th at the Hammond Civic Center and after the first bell at 8:00PM by the end of the night, you will be a fight fan for life!”
