It was a case of a career worst performance, but in terms result and opponent a career best win in the Emerald Road house last Saturday night , according Mark Ginley.
Ginley took on boxing’s panto journey man and prospect barometer, Johnny Greaves, and is happy that despite being at his worst he still managed a ‘deserved win’.
‘The Situation’ claims nerves over his younger brothers paid debut on the same card and some of Greaves notorious play acting affected his performance level.
“I am happy enough. I didn’t stick to my boxing like I should have, but I got the win. I was more nervous about my brothers fight and I am happy he got the win as well. I just did enough. I am much better than that. For me that was a career worst performance. In sparring I was sharp, but I just felt a bit of timing wise tonight,” the older of the boxing Ginley brothers said after his third pro bout.
“I knew he was going to play act and mess about, but it kind of upset me a bit. I should have paid no heed and stayed on him and kept him under pressure. I have to be happy with the win and I thought I did enough to get it.”
