Venom paralyses Johnson


Share post:

Mark “Venom” Griffith showed the difference between a king and a pretender to his throne with a facile 21-14, 21-15, 21-12 dismissal of Marson Johnson when the Barbados Co-Operative Credit Union Limited Monarchs of the Court semifinals were held at De Big Rock Arena on Tuesday night.

From early it was obvious that Johnson, who had looked so good up to the semis, had felt the fangs of the king cobra Griffith as he tottered around the court like a newborn lamb while the disappointed fans waited for him to fall and be consumed.

With Johnson being paralysed from the opening scene of the show, most of the fans needed to find a remote to fast forward to the predictable end.

Mercifully, Griffith attempted to provide some entertainment by adopting a more attacking mode as well as sticking some Kodak poses after blowing past the hapless Johnson. (KB)
