The WBO interim featherweight world title will be on the line when Carl Frampton and Nonito Donaire clash in a blockbuster bout at the SSE Arena in Belfast on April 21, live on BoxNation.

Supporting the main event is Republic of Ireland’s Conrad Cummings [13-1-1] who will take on Northern Ireland’s Luke Keeler [13-2-1] for the WBO European title.

Cummings believes there is only one winner and he wants to keep the winning run going.

He told Ringnews24.com:

“Training’s been fantastic. I fought in March against Gogi Knezevic, I won that fight and kept it going – I’m feeling terrific.

“He’s a good fighter, he’s a decent fighter and he was my weight as an amateur but we never met. I believe I’m a level above Luke and I’ll show that on the night. He’s a good fighter and I respect him. I wish him all the best, but there’s only one winner.”

A confident Cummings doesn’t believe Keeler has anything that he needs to worry about and he believes Keeler will see the best Cummings on the night.

“Everything, there’s not anything he can do better. I’m better in every department. I’ve boxed higher; I’ve boxed higher as an amateur. I’ve boxed at a higher level as a pro. I’ve had 15 fights, 13 wins and one loss and one draw and apart from the rub of the green I could be 15-0.

“But, I’m not and I try and take the rough, the bad things and the good things and use it as an experience. I ‘m really excited this time, I’m really tuned in and I’m a wee bit nervous – that’s a good thing. Keeler will bring out the best of me and I know I’m going to do a job on him 100 percent. “

Keeler drew his last fight against a fighter who lost 29 fights and only had seven wins. Cummings isn’t reading too much into Keeler’s last fight.

“I’m not reading much into that result. He drew that fight, to be fair to him; Jones is a notorious journeyman who’d give anyone a hard fight.

“He dropped him is his third or fourth fight. He’s a big hand full and his record doesn’t do him justice. It’s just a four rounder; I’m not reading much into that. But, what I will tell you is if you think Adam Jones gave him a hard fight wait until April the 21st.

“I didn’t watch it, as I was getting ready for my fight. My father was there and he kept an eye on it and he said ‘he’s a bit wild, he gets a bit reckless and likes to trade’. I need to stick to my boxing, break him down and do what I can do. I’m full of confidence. I believe it’s a tough fight and I’ve been training hard for it. I know what I have to do to take care of it. “

Carl Frampton tops the bill against Nonito Donaire, Cummings shared his prediction.

“I think it’s a phenomenal fight – I think it’s a fight where two world class fighters and two potential Hall Of Famers. I think both needs to be on their game. It’s a must win fight for both of them. Obviously training alongside Carl and knowing him very well as a friend. He’s on the ball he’s training hard. We were sparring hard and he was looking sensational. He was hitting very hard, I’m backing Carl to do the job on him.”

Cummings want’s to meet Saunders for the WBO belt and work his way through the titles on route to a world title fight.

“I want them all [laughs]. I’d like to meet Saunders for the world title; I’d love Langford for the British, the Commonwealth any of these guys on route to the big one. Luke Keeler for now, after that bring on all-comers.

“Just keep winning and keep improving. I’m ranked number 12 in the world with the WBO. If I bet Luke I’ll be top 10. If not win the world title I’d like to be knocking on the door of one by the end of this year.”
