Conrad Cummings will top Ginley Promotions’ stacked ‘Danger at the Devenish 3’ fight bill in Belfast on February 10.
The Tyrone middleweight is the latest addition to the action-packed card, with former English light-welterweight champion Anthony Upton and Belfast middleweight Gerard Healy also added to the exciting fight night at the Devenish Complex.
WBO European champion Cummings returned to the ring after an eight-month absence on Ginley Promotions’ successful ‘Danger at the Devenish 2’ in December and the 26-year-old is happy to be back in action just two months later as he prepares for a big year.
Cummings said: “I’m delighted to get on another show so quickly. I took a few weeks off around Christmas, but I’m back in the gym now.
“I had a bit of a cold for a couple of days – the man flu was the toughest fight I’ve had in a while! But I’m dead on now and back in action.
“I can’t wait to get back in the ring. I’m looking forward to cracking on in a big year and get a bit of momentum behind me.”
Cummings claimed his second six-round points win over Hungarian journeyman Norbert Szekeres last month in his first bout since claiming the vacant WBO European belt last March.
After seeing a number of fights fall through for various reasons, the Coalisland man switched up his team and is now working with trainer Jamie Moore head of what he hopes will be a busy 2018.
“I’d built a bit of momentum heading into last year before all the cancellations, so I just want to pick it up again and get ready for a big year,” said Cummings, who will return to Manchester next week to train under Moore.
“I want to have this fight and then I want to get a few championship 12-rounders after this, but you don’t know how things will go or what fights will arise. I just want to crack on and take whatever opportunity comes.”
The Tyrone native has been called out by numerous 160lb rivals and he is open to the idea of taking on one of his domestic foes in a big summer clash after he features on another Ginley fight bill brimming with Irish talent on February 10.
Cummings laughed: “Everyone’s calling me out – I don’t know what their beef is! Every time I’m on Twitter there seems to be someone calling me out.
“I don’t know whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing! I’ll take it as a compliment. Bring them all on. Whatever opponent makes sense, let’s get it on. It’s all about the right fight at the right time.”
The cracking ‘Danger at the Devenish 3’ line-up will feature Cummings, Upton and Healy as well as Belfast prospects Pádraig McCrory and Seán Magee. Fight details and opponents will be announced in the coming weeks.
Tickets for the February 10 show are priced at £35 (general) and £65 (ringside) and are available from Ginley Promotions (Phone: 00447803799537).
