Matchroom’s NXTGEN shows feature some of their younger prospects and the promotion have held NXTGEN shows in Liverpool several times. The Matchroom NXTGEN Liverpool show in 2024 features an opportunity hometown fighter Peter McGrail to avenge the first loss of his career.

McGrail vs O’Quinn was held on the undercard of Bam Rodriguez vs Sunny Edwards, which featured multiple British fighters competing in America for the first time. It also included Peter’s younger brother Joe McGrail, who scored an impressive KO victory on the same card.

Peter McGrail dominated the entire bout against O’Quinn the first time around. McGrail knocked Ja’Rico O’Quinn down twice in rounds 2 and 4. He closed in for a KO victory in round 5 but came completely unstuck. Ja’Rico O’Quinn knocked out Peter McGrail with a single stunning shot, leaving his opponent firmly on the canvas. This inflicted the first and only defeat of McGrail’s career.

We awarded Ja’Rico ‘O’Quinn with KO of the year in 2023 after his first bout with Peter McGrail.
