LAS VEGAS, NV (May 2, 2022) – In a shocking turn of events, super bantamweight prospect, Darren “The Gift” Cunningham (15-2, 8 KOS), lost to Angel Antonio Contreras (12-6-2, 6 KOs) via a majority decision last Friday, April 29, 2022, in Phoenix, Arizona, at the Celebrity Theater.
“I tried to power through getting sick this week, and was unable to bring my best last Friday,” said Cunningham. “I am not making any excuses, but I got sick last week, and didn’t think it would affect my performance, as I wanted to fight and entertain those who came to see a great night of boxing. In the end, I learned a tough lesson, as I was unable to fight to the best of my abilities.”
“This is not the end by no means,” continued Cunningham. “It isn’t a good feeling, but I know I wasn’t at my best, I still think I did enough to win, but I am going to take out my frustration on my next opponent. I’ll be making an announcement on my next fight soon.”
