Paddy Barnes will make his professional debut in his native Belfast next month.

The two-time Olympic medallist will be on the undercard of Jamie Conlan's Commonwealth title fight at the Titanic Exhibition Centre on 5 November.

Opponents have yet to be confirmed for Barnes or Conlan's defence of his Commonwealth Super-Flyweight belt.

Barnes, 29, confirmed his switch to the paid ranks last month after signing a professional deal with the Marbella-based Macklin Gym.

The undercard will also see local fighters Marc McCullough, Tyrone McKenna, Steven Ward, Sean Turner, Stephen Ormond, Declan Geraghty and Gary Sweeney also in action.

Meanwhile, Coalisland fighter Conrad Cummings will fight Germany's Ronny Mittag for the vacant IBF Inter Continental middleweight title at Wembley's SSE Arena on 18 November.

The 25-year-old has earned 10 wins and a draw during his professional career which began in February 2014.

His draw came against Belfast man Alfredo Meli in a Celtic Middleweight title fight at the Waterfront Hall last November but has since earned three straight wins.
