GLASGOW - Olympic Women's Champion Nicola Adams (ENG) seen off the challenge of Mandy Bujold (CAN) to set up an engaging contest against Michaela Walsh (NIR) for the first ever Women's Flyweight Gold medal bout at the Commonwealth Games.

Scottish Hopeful Reece McFadden (SCO) bowed out after the challenge of Andrew Moloney (AUS) went to a split decision in the Oceanic boxers favour.

The fiery teenage Scot had thought he had done enough to book his place into the final.

Josh Taylor (SCO) defeated Great Britain teammate and friend Samuel Maxwell (ENG) in their Light Welterweight Semi-Final.

It was a tightly matched contest but Taylor's clever boxing and big right-hand shots earned him a unanimous points victory.

Junias Jonas (NAM) produced his display of the tournament to overcome Sean Duffy (NIR).

He showed terrific speed, movement and accuracy, and ensured an African presence in the Gold medal finals.
