Mr Dynamite’ is determined to fulfil his potential after falling short in a bid for the WBO European crown against Luke Keeler last time out – starting on August 18.

With new trainer Jamie Moore now fully established in his corner, the 27-year-old middleweight feels primed to steal some headlines on the night and begin the journey towards a rematch.

Cummings said: “I was feeling down after the defeat to Keeler and had to rebuild myself. I didn’t take the opportunity last time but now my new team is behind me and I feel ready.

“I didn’t look past Luke Keeler but a lot of things were happening behind the scenes and I just massively under-performed.

“I was mentally flat and it showed on the night. I’d like to get it on again.

“It was a hard lesson learned and now I’m getting back in there having recharged and regrouped. What a stage it is to come back on!

“When I turned professional, people were trying to change my style and I was getting lost between two styles.

“Now I know what I have to do and that’s get back to what I do best. The best is yet to come.

“I boxed in the WSB and beat two Olympic silver medallists. I haven’t shown anything like that form yet as a professional but I’m looking forward to putting on a show on August 18.”

Cummings and Keeler both feature on the night at Windsor Park, which boasts a triple headline in Carl Frampton against Luke Jackson, Tyson Fury fights Francesco Pianeta and Cristofer Rosales defends his WBC Flyweight World title against Belfast’s Paddy Barnes.
