Worcester’s Jamaine Ortiz takes on Nahir ‘Woo’ Albright in main boxing event for NABF lightweight belt

WORCESTER — It’s coming up on six years since Jamaine “The Technician” Ortiz made his professional boxing debut following a distinguished amateur career.

The 25-year-old Worcester native, who won a New England Golden Gloves championship in 2015 and advanced deep into the US Olympic Trials the next year, has compiled a 14-0-1 record as a pro and is the reigning WBC USNBC Silver lightweight belt holder.

So it’s been a good run thus far, one that has steadily trended upward.

“It’s been a long time, close to six years as a professional,” Ortiz said last week as Amira, his 5-year-old daughter, played in the background.

“A shout-out to my promoter Jimmy Burchfield for bringing me along this way and getting me these opportunities. I’ve had bigger fights every single time.”
