Press Conference: "Date With Destiny" Card
April 1, 2009

     
   
   
   
   

(APR 1) Merrillville, In - Destiny has brought these two world champions together for their April 25th "Date With Destiny" at the Hammond Civic Center, but on April 4th the NABC Lightweight World Champion "Merciless" Mary McGee and WBF Light Welterweight Champion Kristy "Rose" Follmar will go face-to-face for the first time.

This press conference will take place at the Schererville Hooters, 1650 US Hwy 41, at 2 p.m. and is open to all media outlets and to the public.

"This is a fight that will be explosive from the first punch and this press conference will have its fair share of fireworks," said Octavius James, C.E.O. of One In A Million Inc. "They haven't seen each other at all since this fight was announced and with the help of Scott Milligan of North Coast Distributing and Jessica Mahler of Hooters and Miller Lite, they will get a chance to look each other directly in the eye for the first time."

The vacant WBC Light Welterweight World Title and McGee's NABC Lightweight World Title will both be up for grabs when these two warriors battle it out. McGee (16-0, 10 KOs) is coming off a sensational 3rd round TKO over Jessica Mohs on Jan. 23rd at "SLUGFEST 2009," while Follmar (16-1, 9 KOs) enters the bout after winning a 10-round decision over Eva Jones Young for the WBF Light Welterweight Title.

"To have Hooters and One In A Million, two class acts, we are excited and you can't go wrong," said Milligan of North Coast Distributing partnering with Octavius James' One In A Million Inc. "I've been watching Mary (McGee) fight and I remember when Kristy was pretty big before Mary, so it's going to be an incredible fight and I'm excited to see it."

"We enjoy having the One In A Million fans in our Hooters' establishment," said Schererville Hooters' area promotion manager Elizabeth Thompson. "We are looking forward to continuing a good partnership with One In A Million."

Also featured on the "Date With Destiny" card is the Co-Main Event will showcase Michael "Midnight Stalker" Walker (19-1-2, 12 KOs) vs. Orphius Waite (4-0, 3 KOs). Derrick "Superman" Findley (13-2, 8 KOs), Ed "2 Fast 2 Furious" Ochoa (7-0, 7 KOs), Josh Crouch (3-0, 3 KOs), Angel Hernandez (11-3, 9 KOs), brother and sister pair "The Pit Bull" Jimmy Perez Jr. (4-1, 1 KOs) and Tiffany Perez as they make their first appearance on the same fight card.
