May 30, 2007 (Merrillville, IN)- Octavius James, CEO of One In A Million Inc., has announced
a stacked undercard of local standouts stepping up the competition for the June 8th “Warriors” boxing event from The Hudson-Campbell Sports Center in Gary, IN. Presented by One In A Million Inc. and Bob Arum’s Top Rank Incorporated in association with the City of Gary, “Solo Boxeo” will be televised live on Telefutura from 7-9 pm. to more than 42 US markets and 70 foreign countries.

Topping the undercard, Gary native and IN.B.A. State Welterweight Champion Jermaine “Too Sweet” White (15-2, 7 KOs) will face Derrick Campos (11-3, 8 KOs) of Topeka, KS in a 6-round light welterweight bout. Last September, Campos lost a controversial majority decision (38-36 twice and 37-37) to highly touted Jorge Paez Jr., son of the Mexican legend, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Since then, Campos has been on a 5-fight win streak.

Two undefeated middleweights fight for Indiana state bragging rights on the “Warriors” card when DeMotte’s Jimmy “The Fighting School Teacher” Holmes (15-0-2, 8 KOs) faces Travis “The Hitman” Loveless (10-0, 9 KOS) of Frankfort, IN. In addition to his 90% knock out ratio, Loveless brings an extensive amateur record to the ring.

Another Gary native, “Dangerous” Don Moore (11-0-1, 9 KOs) looks to impress his hometown fans against an opponent to be named next week. Moore, a super featherweight, returns to the ring after scoring a dramatic first round knock out over Pedro Flores on April 20th in Merrillville, IN.
