Luke Keeler: This is Conrad Cummings’ world title fight

RINGSIDE 09/02/2019

Luke Keeler believes he holds a psychological edge over Conrad Cummings ahead of their WBO European middleweight title rematch at Ulster Hall.

After Keeler (15-2-1-KO5) outpointed ‘Mr Dynamite’ in April 2018 before injury forced him to vacate the title and as the pair prepare to renew hostilities on March 29, Keeler is brimming with confidence.

The Dublin star said: “He’s been dismissing his defeat to me saying he just had a bad night but that’s wrong. I don’t think he’s the strongest fighter mentally.

“In fairness, he could’ve had a bad night because that happens to us all but all the pressure is back on him now – it must be impossible for me to win the lotto twice!

“At the same time, I know this is Conrad’s world title fight and he’ll come in prepared right and hungry. I’ll need step up my own performance and I want be taking him lightly at all.

“At the end of the day, I don’t think there’ll be much disrespect between us. Conrad is a nice guy and he’s putting his heart and soul into the boxing the same as I am. It’ll be a great fight for the fans.”

Cummings won the vacant title by outpointing Ferenc Berki on the MTK Global show in Belfast back in December.

Joining Cummings vs. Keeler on a packed night in Belfast are the likes of Steven Ward, Sean McComb, Tyrone McKenna, Tyrone McCullagh, Gary Cully and many more.
