Cummings confirmed on Frampton undercard in El Paso Texas


Tyrone middleweight Conrad Cummings [6(2)-0] will fight on the undercard of Carl Frampton’s IBF super bantamweight title defence at the Don Haskins Centre in El Paso, Texas.

The Coalisland 24 year old will trade leather with an as-of-yet unconfirmed opponent on Saturday night. ‘Dynamite’ joins new Cyclone Promotions signing, Josh Taylor, on the undercard of the Premier Boxing Champions show and will be hoping to impress a U.S. audience.

Speaking to UTV ahead of the bout, Cummings praised the professional set up he is part of in Battersea saying that “we are all together in London where there is no distractions.” Noting the friendly competition in the camp, the charismatic middleweight continued – “everyone wants to be the next Carl Frampton and for us, it is who is going to be the next Carl Frampton and when.”
