First fighter announced for ‘All on the Line’ Meli-Cummings undercard

Ulster middleweights Conrad Cummings and Alfredo Meli will do battle on November 20th for the BBBoC Celtic title at Belfast’s Waterfront Hall. The Cyclone-promoted show, titled ‘All or Nothing,’ promises to have a packed undercard full of local talent, the first of which was confirmed as being Belfast lightweight Paul Hyland Jr [7(2)-0], who fights in a six round contest.

Hyland’s promoter, Mark Dunlop, announced the news yesterday, saying that “the very popular ‘Hylo’ always gives his growing army of fans a night to remember,” and predicted that a big win at the Waterfront Hall will help him “gatecrash the strong British Lightweight rankings where he sits at number 14.”

Of course, Hyland Jr headlines his own Belfast show a month previously on October 17th. Here, at the Europa Hotel, the 25 year old faces Hungary’s Bence Molnar [13(6)-5(0)] over eight rounds.

It promises to be a busy few months for the title-chasing starlet, and tickets for bout cards are available from Hyland and Mark Dunlop.
