O’Quinn Takes First Main Go in Stride

A report from the weigh-in by Lindy Lindell, Author and Exclusive Boxing Commentator, GreeningDetroit.com Sports

Detroit bantamweight Jarico O’Quinn, 7-0-1, will make his maiden main-event go Friday night at Warren, Michigan’s DeCarlo’s Center, a Second to None Promotion, against a very experienced Nick Otieno, a 43-fight vet who has 31 wins and who has never been stopped.  O’Quinn, inactive since August (two fights have fallen out on him), relishes the action, but sees no big handicap for in fighting a boxer with so much pro experience.  O’Quinn had been hoping to fight eight rounders by now, but all will presumably be well if Otieno shows up.  He hadn’ t shown at the weigh-in by seven o’clock, an hour-and-a-half after the designated time for the weigh-in.
