Press Conference: Follmar vs. McGee
April 7, 2009


(APR 7) Indianapolis, In - On Friday, April 10th at 2 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, NABC Lightweight Champion of the World "Merciless" Mary McGee (16-0, 10 KOs) and the WBF Light Welterweight Champion of the World Kristy "Rose" Follmar (16-1, 9 KOs) will invade Indianapolis, Indiana when the pair of champions sit down for a press conference at the Rock Steady Boxing Training Facility, 2002 Wellesley Blvd., just weeks before they step into the ring for "Date With Destiny" at the Hammond Civic Center, on Saturday, April 25th.

Gary, IN's McGee and Indianapolis, IN's Follmar will be aiming for two of the biggest prizes in boxing when they meet in the ring, McGee's NABC Lightweight World Championship and the vacant WBC Lightweight Welterweight World Championship, but at the Rocky
Steady Training Facility they will sit down together for just the second time.

At their most recent press conference at Hooters in Schererville, McGee declared that a loss would end her career. "Nobody's coming out of retirement to beat me, not Kristy Follmar, not Eva, nobody," said McGee. "If I lose to Kristy, I'm quitting."

Follmar, who is the executive director at Rock Steady Boxing, shot right back at McGee. "It's everybody's time to lose at some point," said Follmar. "I have one loss on my record and if it's Mary's time to lose, she'll bounce back."

Octavius James, C.E.O. of One In A Million, Inc., could feel the electricity in the air when these two world class athletes met at their first press conference. "If someone in attendance at that press conference couldn't tell that these two world champions wanted to get things started right there, then I don't know what to tell you," said James.

"We just want to thank the wonderful people at Rock Steady for the opportunity to give these two warriors one more chance to tell the world their intentions come "Date With Destiny" before they get a chance to lace it up and put together one of the best fights the world has to offer," added James.

The two young world champions will also be stopping by the Indiana Golden Gloves on Thursday, April 9th at the Tyndall Armory in Indianapolis. "Without Golden Gloves, boxing wouldn't have world class fighters like McGee and Follmar, both of which have won Golden Gloves titles and we just want to show some appreciation for Golden Gloves," said James.

Also featured on the "Date With Destiny" card is a 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 and the Co-Main Event will showcase Michael "Midnight Stalker" Walker (19-1-2, 12 KOs) vs. Orphius Waite (4-0, 3 KOs), Ed "2 Fast 2 Furious" Ochoa (7-0, 7 KOs), Josh Crouch (3-0, 3 KOs), Angel Hernandez (11-3, 9 KOs), "Big" Ty Ortiz (Debut) will also be in action.

Tickets for this spectacular "Date with Destiny" are on sale now. Tickets can be purchased at VIP $100, VIP ringside $75, ringside $50, and general admission $30 and they are available from any Ticket Master location at (219) 791-1234, (312) 559-1212, (866) 438-7372 or www.TicketMaster.com and at the Hammond Civic Center box office (219) 853-6378.
