Coalisland boxer Conrad Cummings got his pro career off to a flying start at the York Hall.

Cummings - trained by Shane McGuigan - saw off the challenge of Andrejs Loginovs after four rounds 39-36 on the referee’s scorecard and Cummings also had one point deducted for a low blow on Saturday.

The 22-year old will next be out on the Carl Frampton’s Final Eliminator for the WBC World title clash with Hugo Cazares at the Odyssey on April 4 and he says he enjoyed his pro debut.

“It was good to get the win and I cam now look forward to the Odyssey.

“I want to be really busy this year, keep on winning and keeping training and working hard,” he added.

Cummings entered the ring to The Prodigy classic ‘Firestarter’ and was accompanied by manager Barry McGuigan and trainer Shane.

From the opening bell Cummings was on the front foot, backing up his opponent with some stinging shots to the body to which his opponent had no answer for.

Cummings continued to pour on the pressure and, although having that point deducted, he went on to claim an impressive win.

Cummings was also supported by training partner and gym mate Carl Frampton.
