Topping the MTK Global Fight Night at the Ulster Hall, Luke Keeler and Conrad Cummings do battle once again over eight rounds for the WBO European middleweight belt.
Dubliner Keeler [15(5)-2(1)-1] sensationally upset the odds to dominate when the pair met for the belt last April but has been somewhat frustrated since with injuries and fights falling through.
Coalisland’s Cummings [16(7)-2(0)-1] has rebuilt, picking up the rankings belt vacated by an injured Keeler and the Tyrone man [Irish-Boxing.com rank #5] is now out for revenge and a chance to prove that last April was an off night.

Ahead of the fight, Irish-Boxing.com got in contact with the other middleweights in the division for their views and their predictions can be seen below.

I picked Cummings in first fight and was surprised how comfortably Keeler won that fight so I have to go with Keeler this time around. I think he will have the confidence and the edge from the last victory to get the win again.
Irish-Boxing.com rank #6
I know that it’s going to be an exciting fight to watch as Cummings is out for revenge, and I think he wants to prove that his last performance wasn’t up to his standard. I know there will be fireworks from both fighters. I like both guys, so I don’t really want to put a prediction out there, I just know I’ll be tuning in to watch the whole bill, some great fights on that night.

I fancy Keeler again, maybe too smart for Conrad and I see him winning by four or five rounds.
Irish-Boxing.com rank #9
I think Luke Keeler will win again. He has improved a lot over the last year and I just think he has too much boxing for Cummings. It will be an excellent fight though.
Irish-Boxing.com rank #10
I’d say this fight could be a lot closer than last time. I would still edge Keeler but it’s any man’s game in there, one punch can change anything. Wish the both of them the best of luck.
Irish-Boxing.com rank #11
I think I’m going to go with Conrad. I like both fighters but Conrad is a former team mate of mine and I think he’ll learn from his mistakes in the first fight. No doubt it’ll be a cracking fight.

I don’t want to make a prediction because I know both guys pretty well. Everything would point to Keeler boxing and winning the rematch but Cummings might surprise us and come up with something new.
