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…)

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.” (continue reading…)
