Irish middleweight Conrad Cummings has announced his decision to part ways with Barry McGuigan, following great friend Carl Frampton out of the Cyclone Promotions door.

The 26 year-old, who won a fringe version of the WBO title in his last bout, is very close to Frampton and was always expected to mimic the movements of the two-weight world champion.

Frampton’s move to Frank Warren was made official on Wednesday as ‘The Jackal’ confirmed a November 18 return at the SSE Arena in Belfast and it would be now be highly likely Cummings will feature on the bill.

A meeting with Warren and Matthew Macklin’s MTK Global may have already been set-up as Cummings has still been training alongside Frampton in the gym recently.

Trainer Jamie Moore may also have a fresh boxer on his list of pupils in the coming days, although at this point in time Cummings has not made anything clear regarding his future whereabouts despite leaving Shane McGuigan.

At just 26 years of age, Cummings has plenty of time on his side to make an impact in the 160 pound division, having enjoyed success and failure under the McGuigan banner.

Cummings gave no indication of any problems with the McGuigans as the Coalisland man moves on to pastures new with a #14 world ranking to his name.
