Let’s Get It On Promotions and current USBA light-heavyweight champion, Otis “Triple OG” Griffin, have entered into a long term promotional agreement. Griffin, with a record of 22-6, 9 KOs is also ranked #10 in the world in the IBF.
Griffin, who was the winner of Fox’s The Next Great Champ boxing reality TV show in 2004, has been on an impressive winning streak. In April of 2009, he traveled to Florida to fight former super-middleweight world champion, Jeff Lacy, and lost a majority decision in Lacy’s native Tampa, FL. Most boxing fans and writers believe that Griffin won seven out of the ten rounds, and was on the wrong end of a hometown decision. Since then, Griffin has been on a rush, coming off of three impressive wins.
In November, Griffin made his way to New England to fight the popular Joey McCreedy. Although Otis was the underdog going into his opponent’s hometown, he executed a perfect game plan and came out with a unanimous decision victory. In May, Otis traveled to New York to challenge the dangerous Byron Mitchell for the vacant light-heavyweight USBA title. Again the underdog, Griffin pulled off the win with his excellent boxing.
Griffin is slated to headline on August 28th in Fallon, NV on the third annual “Rural Rumble” show. Being from Sacramento, CA, his regional fans will have a chance to see him fight on the West Coast.
“Otis is in a great spot right now.” Says Terry Lane of Let’s Get It On Promotions. “He is looking at a world title shot soon. He is a perfect fit for Let’s Get It On Promotions.”
