Cummings happy to stay top of the class while he learns his trade

CONRAD Cummings’ often strong aggressive approach draws bully comparisons, but this is one bully that is happy to learn.

‘Dynamite’ registered an impressive win over Robert Talarek a fighter know for derailing prospects in just his fourth pro on the massive Titanic Showdown bill on Saturday night.

However, rather than hail the eye catching win the middleweight prospect seemed keen to take lessons and not plaudits from his win over a fighter who is a step above journey man level.

“I showed glimpses of my class, there was definitely a few mistakes and things to work on, but I am coming along nicely,” he said post fight.

“That was a good step up. I enjoyed it he was a good fighter, but when I boxed him I looked my best. He caught me with a few shots, I could feel them, but that was a good learning curve. It is all learning at this stage when you have 10 15 fights you can’t make these mistakes, but I am coming along nicely.”

The Cyclone Promotions middleweight, who hopes to bring his debut year to an end with at least two more fights, also stressed that knowing Taralek was coming to Belfast to win further motivated him and revealed plans to emulate gym mate Carl Frampton’s success.

“I knew this guy didn’t respect me, he is like that in all his fights. He was really game and that motivated me. He is a step up from a journey man. Don’t worry I will be were Carl is in a couple of years time.”
