This vacant IBF Inter-Continental middleweight clash represents a big step up in class for Ulster native Cummings, who is managed by Hall of Famer Barry McGuigan and trained by ‘2016 BBBofC Trainer of the Year’ Shane McGuigan.

‘Dynamite’ has boxed all over the world as both an amateur and a professional but will now take on his most experienced opponent to date when he squares off against 28-year-old German middleweight contender Mittag next month.

Mittag has been a pro for over nine years and although he is only three years older than Cummings, he brings a lot more experience to the table than his undefeated opponent.

Cummings said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for me to showcase my skills in front of a large television audience on Spike and to pick up my first belt as a professional. It’s great to be on a big show at the SSE Arena, Wembley where so many historic fights have taken place over the years.”

“I want to win that IBF Inter-Continental belt, it’s the same belt that my stablemate Carl Frampton won on his way up and I want to emulate Carl by winning the title in style on November 18. My opponent is a genuine contender but nothing is going to stop me getting the win on November 18.”

Cummings vs Mittag will be shown live and exclusively in the UK on Spike.
