He was a fringe contender in the heavyweight division in the early 1980s, fighting such opponents as Tim Witherspoon, Renaldo Snipes and Mitch Green, losing decisions against all three. In his last fight, Cummings was stopped by Frank Bruno. Though Bruno was somewhat fortunate to survive a right hand blow on the bell of round one that left him severely dazed and on the back foot til late in the second, from which Bruno had to be helped to his to corner by Terry Lawless.
He is also notable for having been the final opponent of former heavyweight champion Joe Frazier, when Frazier made a brief comeback in 1981; the fight was scored a draw. Cummings ended his career with a record of 15 wins, six losses and one draw.
