Micky Burke (4-0, 1KO) vs Paul Cummings (2-49)

Welterweight (147)

Micky Burke

Twenty-year-old undefeated prospect, Mickey Burke, found his stopping power last time out. Stopping Tommy Broadbent in the second round, the young Welterweight broke Broadbent early with the jab. A little naive on the back-foot, perhaps not expecting Broadbent to fight as the aggressor, Burke’s class at the mid-range was stark. Sometimes at fault for smothering his work, and with definite improvements needed on the inside, the future is bright for Burke.

Paul Cummings

Journeyman, Paul Cummings, represents another step back for a Warren fighter on Saturday. Ridiculously durable, the elderly gangly frame of Cummings often manages to get fighters necessary rounds. There isn’t much in the way of offence outside of a few arm punches, but Cummings is a tricky fighter to unravel.

Predicted Result: Burke Decision

Twenty-year-old undefeated prospect, Mickey Burke, found his stopping power last time out. Stopping Tommy Broadbent in the second round, the young Welterweight was perhaps a little naïve on the back-foot. Definite work is needed on Burke’s inside game, yet Burke’s confidence at mid-range is notable for his age. Journeyman, Paul Cummings, represents another step back for a Warren fighter on Saturday. Durable, of course, but the Cummings’ arm punches do little in way of damage – offering only a tight defence to unravel for six rounds.
