"Anyone who knows boxing in the Midwest knows Shuler is trying to build a reputation for himself, but I plan to show that Mike Walker is one of the big names in the future of the Middleweight division," Walker said. "Taking Shuler is one of those things I'll do on my way to the top."
With clear height and experience advantages, Shuler is no pushover, which means Walker has had to totally devote himself to his training, said Octavius James, CEO of One In A Million Inc, the Midwest's premiere boxing team.
"Mike practically lives in the gym, but he's been working extra hard to really send a message to Shuler and the boxing world," James said. "On paper, Shuler looks tough, with all those knockouts, but you can't take a sheet of paper into the ring against 'The Midnight Stalker,' so it's going to be an exciting bout."
In a highly touted grudge match, IN.B.A. Middleweight Champion Jimmy "The Fighting Schoolteacher" Holmes (11-0, 6 KOs) will defend his belt against James Morrow (8-1, 4 KOs) who recently faced 2000 Olympian Dante Craig.
Light Welterweight Jermaine "Too Sweet" White (10-0) returns to the ring. Hammond Light Heavyweight Guy Solis (11-4), Jaime Alvarado (3-3), a Mexico City Lightweight, and the ever popular "Merciless" Mary McGee (2-0) will round out the card.
