Pretty Boy ready to look good – Geraghty claims titles are next

‘Pretty Boy’ is ready to look good for the cameras on Saturday night.

Declan Geraghty fights on live TV for just the second time in his career on the Second Coming show in the National Stadium on Saturday night and is determined to show fight fans in attendance, and those watching him box on the box, just how good he is.

A fighter know to Stadium regulars from his time as a skilled and easy on the eye amateur, Geraghty has made steady progress since turning over in May of 2015. A win on the Jamie Conlan-topped bill live on Boxnation on November 7 will see him move into double figures- his sole reverse a disqualification against Jono Carroll – and once that is achieved the 25 year old is keen to kick on.

The two weight Senior amateur champion wants to generate more hype and has a title plan laid out by MGM.

“I’m delighted to be fighting on TV,” Geraghty told Irish-boxing.com. “It gives me the chance to let everyone see how good l really am . Next we are looking for lots of titles we have a year plan laid out myself and Daniel I wanna become European and World champion. I’ve the best manager and team behind me and I know we can do it.”

Geraghty may have to apply the fake tan ahead of his eleventh pro fight, as he traded the sunny climes of Marbella and Spain for Preston ahead of this weekends clash.

The fighter who is looking to get down from lightweight to super featherweight didn’t do camp in his usual MGM base, but stresses the boredom of Preston on fueled his passion to prepare.

“I’ve done camp in Preston for this fight,” he added.  “It’s been a little different but it’s been good for me. I’ve not stepped outside the house beside training so it’s being hard to deal with all the time on my hands, but it’s made me want to go the gym earlier and stay longer. I’ve pushed myself in this camp and I am ready to perform.”
