MERRILLVILLE, Ind., May 21 — On Friday, June 12th at the fight card dubbed “Tinley Park Rumble,” welterweight Ed “2 Fast 2 Furious” Ochoa (8-0, 8 KOs) will square off against a rugged ring Jesse Davis (11-12, 8 KOs).

Ochoa vs. Davis is one of the electric fights scheduled for the “Tinley Park Rumble” with Michael “Midnight Stalker” Walker (19-2-2, 12 KOs) vs. “Iron” Orphius Waite (5-0, 3 KOs) as the main event, but it has been Ochoa stealing the shows with his devastating knockouts lately.

“This is definitely an incredible card to follow up the instant classic that was ‘Date With Destiny’ card,” said Octavius James, C.E.O. of One In A Million Inc. “(Ed) Ochoa is definitely going to be in for a war with Savannah, Tennessee’s Davis, but this is just one of those steps he has to take to become the next world champion.”

The 27 year-old Hobart resident is coming off a destructive 1st round knockout (2:10) of Chris Hill at “Date With Destiny” that rattled the Hammond Civic Center, but Ochoa looks to bring down Davis and the Tinley Park Convention Center to their foundations.
