GL: How is everything going in preparation for your March 10 bout? What can we expect to see from you on fight night? Everything is going good. Camp is going good and you can expect nothing but a knockout. I'm not expecting this to go the distance. I'm going to be sharp as usual, I'm going to be fast as usual and I'm going to be strong. It's going to be an exciting performance, the crowd is going to love it, Showtime is going to love it and that's that.
GL: Do you have an opponent?
Jarico O'Quinn: "Yes sir, I'm fighting a guy that's 14-4 out of Hungaray, so it's a step up for me being 5-0 to fight a guy that's 14-4."
GL: What's the guys name?
JO: "They gave it to me, but I don't know how to pronounce it really. I think it's something Sylvester, but it's spelled funny, it's spelled different."
GL: Have you been able to watch any of his previous fights?
JO: "I looked at him a little bit, but my coaches took a good look at him. I know he switches from southpaw to orthodox so it's going to be a tough fight, but I'm going to make it a short night."
GL: You're saying that you want to get the guy out of there which is very understandable since you don't get paid by the round, but are you looking forward to going six rounds for the first time in your career?
JO: "Yeah I want that to happen in the future, but in this fight here I'm going to get him out of there. There's not too many people who belong in the ring with me, so there's going to be a lot of stoppages."
GL: This is going to be your fifth fight in the last nine months, how do you feel about the way you've been moved?
JO: "I feel great about it because I like to stay busy and I'm always in the gym, so after this fight here I'll be ready to roll again by May or the end of April."
GL: How do you feel about Showtime coming to Detroit for the first time in a while?
JO: "Showtime is going to love me, I know the ticket sales are going to good, I know Showtime has been hearing about me so I'm looking forward to putting on a show in front of them."
GL: You know that a good performance on March 10 is going to lead to you getting televised opportunities. Does that put any extra pressure on you?
JO: "No, I don't let the pressure get to me. I'm not the kind of guy that lets the pressure get to me, I'm going to work like I was in the gym. I'm going to stay calm, be relaxed and do what I do."
GL: Is there anything you'd like to say in closing?
JO: "All glory to God, I want the fans to keep supporting me, it's them I fight for. Make sure you tune in if you can't make it, but I'm putting on a show on March 10. Detroit stand-up."
