Walker To Face 2000 Olympian On Live Pay-Per-View Card August 4

ROSEMENT, ILL. - Octavius James/One In A Million Inc. today announced the addition of true undefeated middleweight prospect Michael “The Midnight Stalker” Walker (15-0-1, 9 KOs) of Chicago to the already action packed “War For 4” card, a pay-per-view broadcast live from the Allstate Arena August. 4..

The “War” will feature living boxing legend Erik “El Terrible” Morales (48-5, 34 KOs), of Tijuana, Mexico., a veteran of some of the toughest boxing wars in the past decade, against the WBC Lightweight Champion and Chicago native David Diaz (32-1-1, 17 KOs), marking his first title defense in the main event.

Walker, known throughout the boxing circles and fans for his punishing boxing attacks and straight forward style, called the match against 2000 Olympian Dante Craig (17-6-1, 13 KOs) an opportunity to break into the sport’s top level.

“I’ve got to shine in this fight, to inflict as much pain as I can on Dante,” Walker said during a break from training camp Saturday at the One In A Million Training Facility. “I’m going to punish him real bad, and the rest of the boxing community is going to know I’m here to make it big.”

Getting past Craig (17-6-1, 13 KOs) who has a significant knockout record, will be no easy task.

Still, the “War” gives Walker the chance to showcase his talents to an international audience, an opportunity the extremely tough Chicagoan has more than earned, said Octavius James, CEO of One In A Million Inc.

“It’s not easy getting good fights for someone as strong and feared as Michael Walker,” said James. “He has an incredibly fierce reputation, and there aren’t many fighters willing to subject themselves to the kind of attack he brings.

But, Michael will still have to bring out his best game to face someone like Craig.”

Another One In A Million Inc. fighter, and Walker’s stable mate, “Marvelous” Shay Mobley (16-8-1, 7 KOs) will also get a chance to shoot his career to the highest levels when he faces the highly touted and undefeated power puncher George “Da Bomb” Donovan (14-0-1, 12 KOs).

“He’s a big name, and he’s been talking a lot of stuff about knocking me out, but he hasn’t fought anyone,” Mobley said Saturday of George, a favorite of boxing broadcasts. “He’s real cocky, calling himself ‘Da Bomb,’ but I’m the first fighter he’s faced, and I’m going to show the world George’s nothing but a cherry bomb.”

The “War” pay-per-view broadcast (suggested retail price of $44.95), presented by Bob Arum’s Top Rank Inc. will also feature welterweight contender Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. (32-0-1, 25 KOs), son of the legendary three-division world champion Julio Cesar Chavez. Chavez has become a fan and media favorite, often-making quick and devastating work of his opponents.

Tickets for the fight start at just $35 and are available through TicketMaster.com and at any Ticket Master locations
