After Another Dominant Victory, Detroit’s
Ja’Rico O’Quinn Ready For The World
Detroit-based super flyweight Ja’Rico “Great Lakes King”
O’Quinn notched yet another impressive victory last Friday
Fighting in the co-main event of a show at the Sound Board
in Detroit’s Motor City Casino and Hotel, O’Quinn (11-0-1, 8
KOs) scored a TKO 3 (2:38) over battle tested Mexican
veteran Alex Rangel (17-9-4, 11 KOs).
The undefeated O’Quinn, one of Detroit’s best bets to be
their next world champion, sent the overwhelmed Rangel to
the canvas once in round two and then three more times in
the third before the merciful stoppage.
O’Quinn and trainer Chad Jaquillard have been working hard
and it shows in the clear improvements in every fight.

His promoter, Dmitriy Salita, says that 23-year-old O’Quinn
is ready for a step up to the world level.
“Jarico O’Quinn is extremely impressive. With each fight, he
is developing into a world-class professional fighter. This
is a weight class is scarce for American talent, but Ja’Rico,
throughout his amateur career and now as a pro, is showing
that he is one of the best in the world. I believe he is the
next in line to bring a world title to the city of Detroit.”
