Conrad Cummings is looking to rebound from his loss against Luke Keeler in solid fashion when the Irishman fights on the historic Windsor Park bill on August 18th. 

Cummings picked up his second career loss in a tough-fought decision loss against Luke Keeler back in April of this year.

Now, on a bill once again headlined by Carl Frampton, Cummings has the chance to get back to winning ways.

“There’s no point in talking about the loss. There was a few things that went wrong and Luke Keeler won fair and square. But if I fought him any other day I would of beat him. There are no two ways about it,” Cummings exclusively told World Boxing News.

The bill is set to be a historic occasion for Irish boxing. The card is headlined by Belfast hero, Carl Frampton, and will also feature 'The Gypsy King' Tyson Fury's second comeback fight since his hiatus as well as Paddy Barnes' shot at the flyweight world title against Cristofer Rosales.

“I’m looking forward to Windsor Park. It’s going to be an honour to be a part of it,” said Cummings. “It’s going to be one of the biggest nights in Irish boxing history and I can’t wait. I’m looking forward to showing the real Conran Cummings.

“I’m honoured to share a bill with Tyson Fury, Carl Frampton, who is a great friend of mine and also Paddy Barnes fighting for a world title.”

No opponent is set for the 27-year-old yet, but even though he is rebounding from a loss, he wants no easy touches on his journey back to the win column.

“There’s nothing confirmed yet, but there’s talk of a couple of English lads with decent records with something like 20 wins and five losses. It’s not going to be a blow over, it’ll be a decent fight.

“I’m confident I’ll perform and get a good win and I’ll be back in the mix very, very soon,” concluded the man known as ‘Dynamite’.

Cummings’ return and the rest of the action will be live on BT Sport, Saturday, August 18th.
