Stuff being applied to the eyebrows but the heads have been kept out of

:00:00.:00:10.

the way, I am pleased to say. First Commonwealth Games without head

:00:11.:00:16.

guards, remember. Northern Ireland's team boxing captain, Paddy

:00:17.:00:20.

Barnes, the most decorated man in Northern Ireland boxing history,

:00:21.:00:24.

with a couple of Olympic bronze medals, European gold and silver,

:00:25.:00:28.

Commonwealth Games gold, looking to become only the fourth man in

:00:29.:00:31.

Commonwealth Games boxing history to defend a title. The other two with

:00:32.:00:41.

decent Kenyans. In 1974 and 1978. And also in 1966 and 1970. And way

:00:42.:00:55.

back in 19 52. Paddy Barnes is about to be number four to defend his

:00:56.:01:02.

title, I am sure. Is there much left in the tank for the Indian? I don't

:01:03.:01:10.

think so. The difference is that Laishram has concentrated on power

:01:11.:01:15.

shots. But it is this bid of Barnes and the accuracy -- the speed of

:01:16.:01:22.

Barnes. If you concentrate on heavy shots like Laishram and you missed

:01:23.:01:25.

the target, you are going to tire, and that is what has happened. For

:01:26.:01:36.

me, Barnes is boxing to instruction and getting the tactics right. Both

:01:37.:01:42.

of them are now very much on flat feet. Barnes is like a snapping

:01:43.:01:53.

turtle that suddenly comes out of its shell and takes a nasty bite at

:01:54.:02:00.

you. I don't think Barnes is going to be denied. The pace has slowed

:02:01.:02:04.

considerably from both of them. It was only yesterday that they were

:02:05.:02:11.

across the road in the SECC in the 2000 capacity boxing Hall. Now we

:02:12.:02:15.

are in water which holds five or six times that, and it is packed. There

:02:16.:02:20.

will be a huge roar at the end of this contest if, as we expect, Paddy

:02:21.:02:25.

Barnes has justified his number-1 billing against the man who has

:02:26.:02:32.

justified his number two billing. Laishram will have to win by a

:02:33.:02:38.

country mile to get the decision. Barnes is not going to go away from

:02:39.:02:42.

this one. Can Paddy Barnes make history yet again in the boxing

:02:43.:02:46.

ring? First Irishman to win back-to-back Olympic medals. Will he

:02:47.:02:51.

be the first boxer from the Home Counties to win back-to-back

:02:52.:02:55.

Commonwealth gold? I think the answer is yes. Barnes is going to

:02:56.:03:01.

finish strongly. We are at the start of August, but here in Glasgow, I

:03:02.:03:05.

have a strong feeling that today is going to be Paddy 's's day. Barnes

:03:06.:03:18.

has got it! Paddy Barnes picks up a second successive gold medal. Close

:03:19.:03:28.

last round. You can't deny this fella. Good performance again. Chose

:03:29.:03:35.

to go on that front foot. This guy put so much power into every shot,

:03:36.:03:40.

and definitely tired towards the end of the first round going into the

:03:41.:03:44.

second. This guy got the tactics right. Works on the inside. Clever

:03:45.:03:58.

from Barnes. Look at the punch combination, then he goes back on

:03:59.:04:03.

the outside. The man from Belfast has got it for me. Technically,

:04:04.:04:08.

Barnes was the best boxer in the tournament from day one. It is a

:04:09.:04:16.

unanimous decision by the judges in favour of the winner, Gold

:04:17.:04:24.

medallist, in the blue corner representing Northern Ireland, Paddy

:04:25.:04:31.

Barnes! Two of the judges gave the last round to Devendro Laishram. But

:04:32.:04:40.

at the Barnes had done enough. Paddy Barnes makes history. First boxer

:04:41.:04:43.

from the Home Counties to defend a Commonwealth title. A fantastic

:04:44.:04:49.

performance by the Northern Ireland boxing captain, Paddy Barnes.

:04:50.:04:56.

We said from the word go that that would be a terror, Amir Khan. It

:04:57.:04:59.

was. You could not put them in a phone box. Paddy put in a great

:05:00.:05:08.

performance. A lot of punches were thrown in that fight. He was the

:05:09.:05:16.

better fighter. When there are just three rounds, when you have won the

:05:17.:05:20.

first, you are obviously in massive control because your opponent almost

:05:21.:05:25.

has to rethink his strategy cos he has got to get back to level pegging

:05:26.:05:31.

or he is out. Exactly. You only have three rounds to prove how good you

:05:32.:05:33.

are. If you get a good first three rounds to prove how good you

:05:34.:05:38.

you know you are going to win. Well, here is Paddy Barnes as he makes his

:05:39.:05:46.

way towards us. Well done, Paddy. You are the first man from any

:05:47.:05:50.

country in 40 years to retain a Commonwealth title at any division.

:05:51.:05:54.

What a great achievement. Not bad my eh? Tough fight? He is very strong

:05:55.:06:06.

and wiry. I did not have a game plan, I just stuck in. You have

:06:07.:06:09.

fought each other before, haven't you? We fought at the Olympics in

:06:10.:06:18.

London. The first round was always going to be key. In the commentary

:06:19.:06:23.

box, they could not call it. Did you know you had got it? Whoever wins

:06:24.:06:32.

the first round will win 90% of the time. So it was key to win. Michael

:06:33.:06:37.

Conlan, your roommate and friend, is fighting a bit later. He had that

:06:38.:06:43.

massive clash yesterday. How is he? Yeah, just a scratch. A scratch! He

:06:44.:06:49.

is one of the most talented boxers in the world. As you are sharing a

:06:50.:06:58.

room, how good would it be if you both had a gold medal? If he does

:06:59.:07:04.

not win, I am going to torture him. Congratulations. Retaining his

:07:05.:07:11.

title, the first boxer from the home nations ever to retain a

:07:12.:07:14.

Commonwealth Games boxing title. We are back here in a few moments.

:07:15.:07:18.

Well done to Paddy Barnes. Later this afternoon, Michael Conlan

:07:19.:07:28.

takes on England's cares --. That is it from E. Hazel Irvine will guide

:07:29.:07:33.

you through the rest of the boxing finals.

:07:34.:07:37.

Great atmosphere. Wonderful atmosphere. We shall enjoy that

:07:38.:07:42.

shortly. But there is news brewing, Jason. Northern Ireland started in

:07:43.:07:48.

20 Fourth Place on the overall medals table. Watch them shoot up

:07:49.:07:54.

that table today, courtesy of Paddy Barnes. And there are another two

:07:55.:07:58.

fighters from Northern Ireland to come this afternoon. Five fighters

:07:59.:08:01.

from the home nations to enjoy in the Hydro. But a lot has been

:08:02.:08:06.

happening and there is a big story brewing as well.

:08:07.:08:12.

England's netballers suffered an agonising semifinal defeat to

:08:13.:08:15.

defending champions New Zealand, who won 35-34 in the last into which

:08:16.:08:21.

their fifth successive final. Husband and wife team John and Paul

:08:22.:08:25.

Drinkhall won gold in the mixed doubles table tennis final.

:08:26.:08:32.

Natalie Blake claimed England's first ever powerlifting medal after

:08:33.:08:37.

the 31-year-old lifted 95 kilos to take silver in the para-sports

:08:38.:08:41.

lightweight category. And Tom Daley recovered well, a poor

:08:42.:08:45.

diet to qualify in first phase for the 10m but four final. He will aim

:08:46.:08:50.

to defend his title in Edinburgh this evening.

:08:51.:08:55.

Here is what is happening all around the venues in Glasgow. This is on

:08:56.:09:00.

BBC Three right now my the badminton. All five badminton events

:09:01.:09:09.

will go to their bronze medal play-offs this evening, with the

:09:10.:09:13.

finals to follow tomorrow. On the red button, it is dementedly

:09:14.:09:18.

busy here. We are at this wash semifinal stages, -- squash

:09:19.:09:25.

semifinal stages. There are a lot of doubles and a lot of these on

:09:26.:09:31.

court. -- bodies. But we are just hearing

:09:32.:09:35.

news in the last few minutes of what could be a huge story. Botswana's

:09:36.:09:44.

former champion Amantle Montsho has failed a drugs test. She won the

:09:45.:09:48.

world title in 2011 before finishing second behind Christine Ohuruogu

:09:49.:09:53.

your class year. She has apparently tested positive for a banned

:09:54.:09:56.

stimulant after the 400m in Glasgow, where she was fourth behind the

:09:57.:10:04.

Jamaican trio. She will have her B sample tested on Monday. As soon as

:10:05.:10:07.

we get further news, we will bring it to you. It is a full programme of

:10:08.:10:13.

track and Field tonight at Hampden. There are nine finals, all the

:10:14.:10:16.

relays to become tested as well. That features you know who, Mr Usain

:10:17.:10:22.

Bolt. But it is also the 1500m, the Metric Mile, the blue riband event

:10:23.:10:26.

on track and the middle-distance races. This comes on the 60th

:10:27.:10:32.

anniversary of the so-called Miracle Mile in Vancouver 1954 between

:10:33.:10:35.

Australia's John Landy and a certain Sir Roger Bannister.

:10:36.:10:43.

Before May 1954, running a mile in under four minutes was perceived by

:10:44.:10:50.

many as an impenetrable barrier. Some people felt that there must be

:10:51.:10:55.

a limit somewhere. Perhaps it was not four minutes, but I was a

:10:56.:10:59.

medical student and I realised that was nonsense. Somewhere, somehow,

:11:00.:11:03.

someone could break the four-minute mile. On the 6th of May noted 54,

:11:04.:11:09.

Roger Bannister made his record-breaking attempt. Roger

:11:10.:11:19.

Bannister takes over. He races the last lung bursting furlong to the

:11:20.:11:22.

finishing post. This was it, the final effort that had kept him and

:11:23.:11:27.

many others from the four-minute mile. At his record only lasted 46

:11:28.:11:32.

days, when Australian John Landy beat his time in a race in Finland.

:11:33.:11:38.

John Landy, fastest mile runner in the world. I expected my record to

:11:39.:11:47.

be broken, but it was a bit swift. This set up the race together at the

:11:48.:11:50.

1954 Commonwealth Games in Vancouver as the Miracle Mile. But to Roger

:11:51.:11:56.

Bannister, it was much more than that. I knew it was the biggest race

:11:57.:12:04.

of my life. I realised also that my achieving the first four-minute mile

:12:05.:12:08.

would be relatively meaningless if John Landy then defeated me. So it

:12:09.:12:18.

really was between the two mile -- macro of us to see who was better. A

:12:19.:12:27.

battle for mastery on the track. New Zealand take the lead. John Mandy of

:12:28.:12:34.

Australia lies fourth. I believe they were looking at the two of us

:12:35.:12:38.

almost like prizefighters. What toothpaste does he use? What are his

:12:39.:12:53.

strengths and weaknesses? By then, John Landy had become the

:12:54.:12:58.

favourite, and I was most comfortable not being the favourite.

:12:59.:13:04.

But what I had to be certain of was that John Landy lead in the early

:13:05.:13:09.

part of the race. I felt I had a better finish if I could somehow

:13:10.:13:16.

hang on. Then I could beat him. It is already a two-man race. I ran as

:13:17.:13:26.

hard as I could to keep up with him. Landy ran his race just as Bannister

:13:27.:13:33.

had hoped. Over the last bend, he looked over his left shoulder,

:13:34.:13:38.

wondering whether he had dropped me. The crowd were making such noise

:13:39.:13:44.

that he could not hear my footsteps. And when he looked back from looking

:13:45.:13:47.

over his shoulder, not having seen me, I had actually then overtaken

:13:48.:13:54.

him. And that element of surprise was such that he could not then

:13:55.:14:01.

catch me. Roger Bannister wins by three yards in three minutes and 58

:14:02.:14:05.

seconds. And Vancouver salutes another English victory.

:14:06.:14:22.

We are going to talk about Australia versus England now. John Inverdale,

:14:23.:14:35.

by my count, we have 41 golds for Australia and 54 England. And it

:14:36.:14:39.

looks as though, for the first time in 28 years, England are on course

:14:40.:14:41.

to top the medal table in these games. Yeah, I ought to answer that

:14:42.:14:49.

question when these anthems have finished out of respect.

:14:50.:15:25.

Well, from one Aussie on top of the podium here, another who was

:15:26.:15:31.

watching that fantastic piece of footage about the Miracle Mile 60

:15:32.:15:35.

years ago involving John Landy and Roger Bannister. In Hatton is here

:15:36.:15:40.

from team Australia. You were saying how that is still a race that is

:15:41.:15:43.

spoken about in reverential tones in Australia? Is certainly is. One of

:15:44.:15:48.

the great names in Australian sport and in world sport. One of my

:15:49.:15:55.

colleagues said the other day, John is still going strong. And you said

:15:56.:16:00.

there was some monument to the race in Melbourne? Yes, another race,

:16:01.:16:07.

actually. That was where there was a fall. It was one of the great

:16:08.:16:16.

sportsmanships. Not just a great runner, but wonderful sportsmanship

:16:17.:16:21.

among the Australian team. And a quick word about the boxing. Great

:16:22.:16:24.

atmosphere, and you must be happy with the Aussie boxers? It was

:16:25.:16:29.

wonderful to see Shelley. She has only been fighting for four years,

:16:30.:16:33.

but a true blue Aussie. She is a law student. And she is mixing with the

:16:34.:16:39.

best of them. A wonderful start for us. Fingers crossed. What has been

:16:40.:16:46.

your impression of the games in Glasgow? It has been wonderful. We

:16:47.:16:51.

have a team of over 600 here. And they really spirited boxing team. We

:16:52.:16:58.

have some great athletes. We had the golden girls on the track. Just tell

:16:59.:17:11.

me if you have got a minute because there is a lot of talk about the

:17:12.:17:16.

future of the Commonwealth Games. It is in Brisbane in four years. And

:17:17.:17:20.

that interest is this event garnering in Australia and how big

:17:21.:17:25.

will it be on the Gold Coast? I have lived there since 1998 and it will

:17:26.:17:30.

be huge. It is a wonderful sporting city, the beaches are made thing...

:17:31.:17:38.

What about the sport? This sport is part of the feature of going there.

:17:39.:17:44.

It is a great sporting city and part of the lifestyle. People have

:17:45.:17:48.

supported these Games magnificently. Do you think the crowds will be the

:17:49.:17:57.

same? I am sure they will. We have a team that packs in 25,000 to the

:17:58.:18:02.

stadium to watch the football every week. So the Commonwealth Games will

:18:03.:18:07.

be huge in four years. Pleasure to talk to you. Thank you. An insight

:18:08.:18:12.

into how the Games might be progressing in four years that there

:18:13.:18:16.

is still a question hanging over what happens four years after that.

:18:17.:18:20.

Paddy Barnes has just been for his medal ceremony. He is going to make

:18:21.:18:25.

the jump, well, I assume, that he will move to the professional ranks

:18:26.:18:34.

have an won gold medals here. -- having won a gold medal here. Is

:18:35.:18:41.

that a big step? Most amateurs want to turn professional one day and

:18:42.:18:46.

start making money. He is in a great position now with his gold medal but

:18:47.:18:50.

if I was him I would tell him to give it another two years and have

:18:51.:18:54.

another chance at the Olympics. He is already a gold medallist, so

:18:55.:18:58.

making that more gold would be better for him. Why would you advise

:18:59.:19:04.

that? Isn't he running the risk of missing the boat? Would you say that

:19:05.:19:07.

if he has another gold medal he would be more marketable? Yes. Add a

:19:08.:19:13.

professional fighter has to be marketable, selling tickets.

:19:14.:19:18.

Anything can happen in those two years. The main thing is he will get

:19:19.:19:27.

more experience, develop as a fighter, and come out nice and

:19:28.:19:31.

strong. Back to the action now because we have had the medal

:19:32.:19:35.

ceremony for an Australian gold medal. Maybe there will be another

:19:36.:19:39.

one coming in a few moments. Back to the box.

:19:40.:19:48.

From Australia, Andrew Moloney! Andrew Moloney begins his ring walk.

:19:49.:19:59.

This is the man who brought to an end the fairy tale run of Reece

:20:00.:20:06.

McFadden. That was that semifinal stage. Three Australian finalists

:20:07.:20:15.

will compete here today. Very patient boxer. Uses terrific tactics

:20:16.:20:23.

to pull off his victories, including the one that silenced the crowd at

:20:24.:20:28.

the SECC. Kevin Smith and the Australian team clearly did their

:20:29.:20:31.

homework and that was crucial in eliminating Reece McFadden. He had a

:20:32.:20:36.

terrific run through to the semifinal stage. Excellent

:20:37.:20:40.

performance from Maloney in that contest. The previous opponents

:20:41.:20:47.

could not suss out Reece McFadden but he did and he was patient and

:20:48.:20:51.

got his tactics right. It was very close but he got there. These are

:20:52.:21:06.

the judges presiding over the tournament. Three will score it,

:21:07.:21:08.

chosen randomly. In the red corner, Waseem! And in

:21:09.:21:29.

the blue corner, representing Australia, Andrew Moloney! The

:21:30.:21:51.

referee is from Brazil. As the referee brings the two boxes

:21:52.:21:54.

together, there is very little in it in terms of height and reach. We are

:21:55.:22:04.

under way. The 52 kilo flyweight action. The boxer in blue is Andrew

:22:05.:22:11.

Moloney. Three Australian finalists here on this final day of

:22:12.:22:15.

competition in the boxing tournament. Muhammad Waseem wearing

:22:16.:22:19.

red and representing Pakistan, the sole representative in these gold

:22:20.:22:28.

medal bouts. Waseem has thrown a fast combinations, fast feet,

:22:29.:22:32.

getting him into position to close down the gap. He will throw up to

:22:33.:22:36.

six punch combinations. Very quick indeed. It was a patient's display

:22:37.:22:42.

from Maloney in the last contest but he might have to change his tactics

:22:43.:22:48.

and match the speed of his opponent in red. -- patient display. Waseem

:22:49.:23:01.

the reigning bronze medallist from Delhi. He has moved up in weight and

:23:02.:23:06.

gone one better in terms of medals at least. He would love to make it

:23:07.:23:10.

gold but he has a formidable opponent in front of him in the form

:23:11.:23:14.

of 23-year-old Maloney from Victoria. That right hand to the

:23:15.:23:21.

body was countered by Waseem but then Maloney ended the exchange with

:23:22.:23:22.

a long left. Exchange of hard right hands.

:23:23.:23:39.

Maloney is very patient and works well with his jab. He has caught

:23:40.:23:46.

Waseem with his right hand. Waseem has closed the gap down. The

:23:47.:23:51.

movement is a bit better from the Australian in this opening round.

:23:52.:23:55.

Waseem has closed the gap down. The movement is a bit better from the

:23:56.:24:03.

Australian in this opening round. Waseem have enjoyed buys in the

:24:04.:24:09.

opening rounds of the tournament. -- both boxers enjoyed buys.

:24:10.:24:23.

Patient and tactical win over Reece McFadden. Taking a while to get into

:24:24.:24:32.

his rhythm. Maloney will be catching the eye of the judges with his

:24:33.:24:38.

aggression and activity. Took a while to find his rhythm, Waseem,

:24:39.:24:43.

but he demonstrated that wonderfully in his victory over Abdul Omar of

:24:44.:24:55.

Ghana, who had got inside his reach. An untidy finish to the conclusion

:24:56.:25:01.

of this opening round. Maloney has boxed well. He has the scores for

:25:02.:25:05.

me. Good with the jab, good movement. He made his opponent work

:25:06.:25:11.

on the inside. I thought Maloney boxed better. He is the captain of

:25:12.:25:20.

the Pakistan boxing team. He has lead by example by making it through

:25:21.:25:24.

to the gold medal fight. Normally Waseem is better on the inside but

:25:25.:25:28.

Maloney was more active in that round. Yes, he has got all three of

:25:29.:25:37.

the scores. You can't blame them. In Pakistan corner they will be giving

:25:38.:25:42.

him a roasting. But Kevin Smith will be more than pleased. Heading up the

:25:43.:25:50.

Australian boxing programme and he worked with Nigeria in the 2012

:25:51.:25:58.

Games. Coaching qualities in demand all round the world in Olympic style

:25:59.:26:05.

boxing. Maloney in blue representing Australia took the opener. As we

:26:06.:26:10.

have seen time and again, taking the opening round is so crucial because

:26:11.:26:14.

it determines your tactics, especially in the second round. And

:26:15.:26:24.

often in the contest that follows. Expect to see Waseem making a more

:26:25.:26:33.

assertive and aggressive approach to this second round. Moloney is

:26:34.:26:41.

beating him to the shot. Waseem is too slow on his feet and needs to

:26:42.:26:46.

quicken up. He needs a tempo change. Moloney has been able to box at

:26:47.:26:51.

distance. Because Waseem is allowing him to do that, Moloney is gaining

:26:52.:26:55.

control of the contest. Straight right hand. Boxing mid to long range

:26:56.:27:03.

with no real problems. The man in red needs a change of tactics.

:27:04.:27:11.

Approaching the second half of the second round, but there has been no

:27:12.:27:17.

discernible change of tactics and tempo and intensity from Waseem.

:27:18.:27:20.

While he is remaining on the outside he is being picked off by the

:27:21.:27:25.

pecking punches of Moloney from Australia. The Australian has taken

:27:26.:27:33.

the opening half of this second round for my money. The left - right

:27:34.:27:41.

from Waseem and right hand over the top as successful as well. He is

:27:42.:27:53.

circling his opponent and Waseem has got to get on the front foot and

:27:54.:28:03.

sustain the pressure. In centre, Moloney is totally in control.

:28:04.:28:09.

Moloney competed in the 2010 Games but boxed at light flyweight,

:28:10.:28:12.

allowing his brother Jason to qualify at 52. Identical twins.

:28:13.:28:22.

Jason to the long straw, forcing Andrew into a weight class lower

:28:23.:28:27.

than he usually competes at. Jason hasn't qualified here. Andrew is

:28:28.:28:32.

that his more natural poundage of 52 kilograms and is all the way through

:28:33.:28:36.

to the gold medal bout, boxing wonderfully with single shots.

:28:37.:28:49.

Waseem still patiently stalking but hasn't troubled Moloney with any

:28:50.:28:53.

sustained assault. At this tempo, it most certainly seems to be

:28:54.:28:59.

Australia. There is the bell to end round number two. Waseem pumps his

:29:00.:29:04.

arm in celebration but I suspect when we see the scores, they will be

:29:05.:29:11.

in favour of the man in blue. He is boxing to instruction, boxing very

:29:12.:29:15.

well. Quite within himself. Handling the space. His movement is better. I

:29:16.:29:26.

think Waseem is feeling the pace over a hard ten days. This is his

:29:27.:29:37.

fourth contest. He thinks he has one -- won that but I disagree and so do

:29:38.:29:45.

all the judges. Waseem will have to win this final round in dominant

:29:46.:29:49.

fashion and ended inside the distance preferably if he hopes to

:29:50.:29:54.

occupy top spot. All calm in the blue corner, Andrew Moloney has

:29:55.:29:58.

taken the opening two rounds unanimously. The boxer wearing red,

:29:59.:30:04.

in the final round, Muhammad Waseem competing in his fourth contest in

:30:05.:30:12.

the Commonwealth Games. He got a buy in to the opening round and beat the

:30:13.:30:18.

man from Malaysia. He beat Abdul Omar from Ghana in the semifinal.

:30:19.:30:23.

Now he is on the Frankfurt, trying to increase the intensity against

:30:24.:30:32.

Moloney, -- front foot. But Andrew Moloney is still picking him off as

:30:33.:30:39.

he comes in. It is too slow from Waseem. He is failing here. Moloney

:30:40.:30:45.

is being allowed to work at mid and long range and Waseem has to get on

:30:46.:30:50.

the front foot and change tempo. The Australian is getting into his

:30:51.:30:53.

rhythm and has been allowed to plan the attack. He is watching and then

:30:54.:30:59.

he will pounce. He is boxing well within himself. He has controlled

:31:00.:31:02.

the pace. The Australian has controlled things very well.

:31:03.:31:29.

But to be able to go four or five times in the space of ten days. When

:31:30.:31:38.

you box with that with high intensity, it takes its toll. With

:31:39.:31:43.

Waseem, his feet are slow and the accuracy of his work is not good. My

:31:44.:31:49.

lowly, on the other hand, -- Maloney is controlling things very well. The

:31:50.:31:57.

two times national champion of Pakistan, Waseem, brings a round of

:31:58.:32:06.

applause from the crowd. We are inside the final minute. These are

:32:07.:32:20.

the tactics that Waseem should have adopted at the start, on that front

:32:21.:32:27.

foot, closing his man down. And there is a cut to the right eye of

:32:28.:32:35.

Waseem. That is significant. He appears to be in a bad place. He is

:32:36.:32:41.

distracted by it. The man from Pakistan needs a furious finish. He

:32:42.:32:48.

took a couple of body shots from Maloney. Maloney has won that. That

:32:49.:32:59.

is a good performance. Waseem celebrated instantly as well.

:33:00.:33:14.

But he needed to win the third and final round by big margins. I

:33:15.:33:29.

suspect it is too little, too late in an effort to turn the contest in

:33:30.:33:35.

his favour. Those are the tactics Waseem should have used at the

:33:36.:33:50.

start. At the moment when the final bell sounded, exuberance and

:33:51.:33:53.

abrasions from Waseem, but I suspect he is going to be disappointed if he

:33:54.:33:57.

believes he genuinely did enough to take that gold medal. We are

:33:58.:34:00.

awaiting the official announcement now. It appears that Australian

:34:01.:34:08.

Andrew Moloney were occupied the top spot on that rostrum. Here is the

:34:09.:34:13.

official announcement. Ladies and gentlemen, we have our judges' score

:34:14.:34:18.

totals. Winner, by unanimous decision, now gold medallist and

:34:19.:34:24.

Commonwealth men's flyweight champion, in the blue corner, from

:34:25.:34:38.

Australia, Andrew Moloney! Andrew Moloney acknowledges the crowd here

:34:39.:34:43.

at the SSE Hydro. He is the Commonwealth Games champion. With a

:34:44.:34:53.

display of tactically astute boxing. He takes a bow to all sides of the

:34:54.:35:02.

arena. He is the gold medallist at 52 kilograms. Absolute delight. This

:35:03.:35:10.

man executed his tactics to perfection. The man in the red

:35:11.:35:12.

corner, Muhammad Waseem, was disappointed. Pakistan's sole

:35:13.:35:17.

representative in the gold medal bouts comes away with a silver. I am

:35:18.:35:21.

sure he will look act on that in years to come with a great deal of

:35:22.:35:26.

pride, but for now, he is not happy. Andrew Moloney is the champion.

:35:27.:35:32.

Well, Michaela Walsh was disappointed with the judging

:35:33.:35:37.

earlier when she lost to Nicola Adams. But there is only one winner,

:35:38.:35:42.

and this is the gold medallist. Congratulations. How tough was that

:35:43.:35:48.

for you? More mentally tough than anything, because I wanted it so

:35:49.:35:53.

bad. I barely slept all week. It has been hard work for 12 years. I did

:35:54.:35:57.

not want to let the opportunity slip. When you seriously say you

:35:58.:36:01.

have not slept in a week come away you just tossing and turning all

:36:02.:36:07.

night? Definitely. Once I secured a medal, I slept a bit easier, but

:36:08.:36:13.

still not good. Is that nerves, and is it also parents and friends,

:36:14.:36:18.

feelings of responsibility to lots of people involved in you? It is

:36:19.:36:22.

more me putting pressure on myself. I knew I could win the gold medal if

:36:23.:36:27.

I boxed to the best of my ability. I did not want to let myself down, and

:36:28.:36:33.

everyone else. How do you rate your performance today? These whole

:36:34.:36:39.

Commonwealth Games, I have not had a chance to do my absolute best, but I

:36:40.:36:43.

have had to adapt to the other boxers and do what I had to do to

:36:44.:36:48.

get the win. What is next for you? I am not sure. A good night's sleep!

:36:49.:36:56.

May be in a couple of days! Go on holiday with my girlfriend. She

:36:57.:36:59.

deserves to have some time with just me and her. I have been boxing for

:37:00.:37:04.

the last four years. And then celebrate with family and friends.

:37:05.:37:10.

It is one of those moments where you realise why you did all those early

:37:11.:37:12.

mornings and endless training session? That is right. Sometimes

:37:13.:37:17.

you wonder why you put yourself through such gruelling training. But

:37:18.:37:24.

at moments like this, I would do it ten times over again. Two golds for

:37:25.:37:30.

the Aussies. Congratulations. Amir, over the last ten days of the whole

:37:31.:37:35.

of the Commonwealth Games, we have been talking about the haves and

:37:36.:37:39.

have-nots. That is the nature of this competition. Some have

:37:40.:37:41.

unbelievable government funding and facilities, but you were telling me

:37:42.:37:46.

about the facilities that the Pakistan boxers have, which I am

:37:47.:37:50.

sure will surprise a lot of people. Yeah, I was speaking to the Pakistan

:37:51.:37:53.

team yesterday and they were telling me they do not have any facilities

:37:54.:37:57.

to train in. They had a big field where they had to do all the running

:37:58.:38:00.

and boxing training. They had no boxing ring. I am doing a lot of

:38:01.:38:05.

work in Pakistan myself, so I said, I am going to try and help you guys.

:38:06.:38:10.

I will build a boxing academy for you. I built one in Bolton in

:38:11.:38:13.

England, and I will do the same in Pakistan. There is so much talent in

:38:14.:38:19.

Pakistan, but it is not being used. Aren't lots of boxing rings actually

:38:20.:38:23.

manufactured in Pakistan? Most of them are made in Pakistan and

:38:24.:38:27.

shipped everywhere else. The boxing gloves are made in Pakistan as well,

:38:28.:38:30.

but they don't have any equipment. So it is good that we will go there

:38:31.:38:35.

and help. Well, from a country that does not have a lot to a country

:38:36.:38:39.

that does have a lot of talent. Here is Paddy Barnes, about to receive

:38:40.:38:44.

another Commonwealth Games gold medal like the one he won in Delhi

:38:45.:38:48.

four years ago. He was on the rostrum in Beijing as well in 2008

:38:49.:38:56.

and again in London in 2012 after a rip-roaring three rounds against his

:38:57.:38:59.

Indian opponent today, he is a champion once again. I am guessing

:39:00.:39:05.

that Jim nearly will describe this medal ceremony. And you are proud,

:39:06.:39:09.

Jim, because you know what this means to Northern Ireland. Indeed,

:39:10.:39:14.

John. Not for the first time have the boxing team for Northern Ireland

:39:15.:39:20.

done the province proud. Things were not looking good this time

:39:21.:39:24.

yesterday, just a silver and a bronze. But the seven men and two

:39:25.:39:30.

women got themselves into the medals, and that has catapulted the

:39:31.:39:33.

Northern Ireland team up the medals table with considerable aplomb. Here

:39:34.:39:46.

is the president of the Commonwealth Games Association. Accompanied by

:39:47.:39:54.

the president of the Commonwealth Games Association of Malawi. The

:39:55.:40:04.

medals are presented by the president of the Lesotho

:40:05.:40:13.

Commonwealth Games Association. And there are the wonderful quaichs. I

:40:14.:40:19.

have friends that rebuke me when I do not drink out of one. This fella

:40:20.:40:27.

is just a teenager. If he sticks around, we will be seeing him in

:40:28.:40:31.

four years' time whenever he did captains from Glasgow to the Gold

:40:32.:40:39.

Coast in Australia. He had the misfortune of coming up against

:40:40.:40:42.

Paddy Barnes in the semifinal and was outboxed 3-0, but he is a real,

:40:43.:40:52.

raw talent and a serious aspect. -- prospect. And there is his quaich.

:40:53.:41:07.

Don't fill it up too much. The winner of the bronze medal.

:41:08.:41:10.

Representing Wales, Ashley Williams! Again, Ashley Williams

:41:11.:41:18.

Oxton very well, up to and including the semifinal -- he boxed very well.

:41:19.:41:29.

But he found the buzzsaw style of his Indian opponent a little too

:41:30.:41:30.

much. And now the silver medal. The winner

:41:31.:41:56.

of the Silver medal. Representing India, Devendro Laishram! They have

:41:57.:42:05.

had to patch up a little cut, courtesy of Paddy Barnes. He was the

:42:06.:42:11.

number three ranked boxer in this division coming into this

:42:12.:42:15.

tournament, and you could have not got a better final. The top two men

:42:16.:42:20.

met to decide gold and silver. He got the silver. He was hoping to

:42:21.:42:27.

become only the second Indian to ever win a gold medal in this

:42:28.:42:32.

division. But again, he is just a youngster. And now, for the first

:42:33.:42:36.

time in four years, youngster. And now, for the first

:42:37.:42:49.

Northern Ireland, Paddy Barnes! Come on, Paddy, give us a bit of a

:42:50.:42:53.

smile! The Northern Ireland team captain, very much set the standard,

:42:54.:43:00.

lead by example. Only the fourth boxer in the history of the

:43:01.:43:02.

Commonwealth Games boxing tournament to win back-to-back gold medals. At

:43:03.:43:09.

27, does he stay amateur? Will the funding continue? Of course it will.

:43:10.:43:14.

Will he goes to Rio and have a crack at being the first Irish boxer to

:43:15.:43:18.

win medals at three successive Olympic Games? The quaich will be

:43:19.:43:27.

stuck in the pocket somewhere. For the first time in four years in the

:43:28.:43:32.

Commonwealth Games we will hear Northern Ireland's anthem, courtesy

:43:33.:43:33.

of Paddy Barnes. system in 1990 and a member of the

:43:34.:45:03.

public had to sing Danny Boy. In 1994 they had similar problems. The

:45:04.:45:09.

Northern Irish team doctor was an opera singer for fun and he stood up

:45:10.:45:18.

and did it but no problems here at the Glasgow 2014 boxing tournament.

:45:19.:45:22.

The highly efficient Paddy Barnes gets to listen to his

:45:23.:45:24.

The highly efficient Paddy Barnes gets to listen to country's national

:45:25.:45:27.

anthem and make history. Double gold in the Commonwealth for the Belfast

:45:28.:45:34.

boy, Paddy Barnes. But you were on stand-by in case the pH didn't work,

:45:35.:45:45.

were you? They couldn't afford me! There will be more moments for

:45:46.:45:48.

Northern Ireland in the ring because Michael Conlan is about to compete

:45:49.:45:53.

for plays Ash back. An interesting fight on two levels, Northern

:45:54.:46:01.

Ireland against England. -- Michael Conlan is about to compete against

:46:02.:46:07.

Qais Ashfaq. But also you are very interested in this. Yes, he is a

:46:08.:46:12.

good friend of mine and I just met him before the fight in the changing

:46:13.:46:16.

rooms, and he was calm and confident. I think they have sparred

:46:17.:46:27.

before but never fought. Qais is very confident. He is a favourite to

:46:28.:46:31.

win the gold medal and I think he can do it. He looked good in the

:46:32.:46:36.

semifinals and he has got my money. We will see when Michael Conlan

:46:37.:46:42.

walks out what work has been done on his face following that clash of

:46:43.:46:46.

heads but there was a gaping hole above his eye. They will have done a

:46:47.:46:50.

lot of work on it over 24 hours but it is not much time between one

:46:51.:46:56.

fight and another. How vulnerable is here? To open up again? Very

:46:57.:47:01.

vulnerable. It could open up at any time in the fight. He needs to keep

:47:02.:47:08.

his defence higher, move his head more, make sure he does not get hit

:47:09.:47:13.

on that part. But if you are Qais, you know that is a vulnerability.

:47:14.:47:19.

Are you jabbing? Are you trying to get your head in as well? No, no. If

:47:20.:47:27.

I was Qais I think I would be throwing punches. He could be

:47:28.:47:30.

disqualified if he went in with his head. I saw the cut when I had a

:47:31.:47:41.

chat with him and it has healed well. The backroom team did a good

:47:42.:47:49.

job helping it to meal. He has two butterfly stitches but I am sure it

:47:50.:47:55.

will be fine. You are valuable as a boxer and few other guy in the ring

:47:56.:47:59.

and the people in your corner are very important because it is a team

:48:00.:48:05.

effort. It is a big team effort and you need them. I don't think that

:48:06.:48:12.

Northern Irish kid needs that pressure, knowing he has got a cut.

:48:13.:48:17.

For Qais it will be about confidence. He knows he could open

:48:18.:48:27.

up the cut and win by stoppage. You have to say that the staging of this

:48:28.:48:31.

boxing competition, not just here but at the SECC as well, has been

:48:32.:48:38.

brilliant. Everything has been running like clockwork and the music

:48:39.:48:44.

has hyped up the atmosphere as well. Michael, and opens to Jimi Hendrix.

:48:45.:48:48.

This is Northern Ireland against England. So we are guaranteed a home

:48:49.:49:01.

nations win but who? Jim? Michael Conlan has made his way to the red

:49:02.:49:09.

corner. 21-year-old from Leeds is Qais Ashfaq and he will be in the

:49:10.:49:16.

blue corner. The sixth English man to win gold in this division in the

:49:17.:49:21.

Commonwealth Games possibly. In 74, then Shaun Murphy in 86, then a

:49:22.:49:30.

fairer old gap. The favourite in this division for Michael Conlan to

:49:31.:49:48.

defend there! Contend with. Ashfaq has nothing to fear really. Giving

:49:49.:49:52.

away a certain amount of height and reach to the Northern Irish man.

:49:53.:50:07.

Michael Conlan's great buddy and roommate here Paddy Barnes has set

:50:08.:50:15.

the standard. Conlan will be desperate to follow that example.

:50:16.:50:21.

Representing Northern Ireland, Michael, -- Michael Conlan! And

:50:22.:50:33.

across the ring in the blue corner, representing England, Qais Ashfaq!

:50:34.:50:46.

What a great buzz around this magnificently appointed arena.

:50:47.:51:10.

By far the more experienced man in this particular final is the man in

:51:11.:51:15.

red, Conlan, representing Northern Ireland. He won the silver medal in

:51:16.:51:21.

the European Championships and a bronze medal at the Olympic Games

:51:22.:51:25.

and he has boxed in two World Championships, reaching the

:51:26.:51:28.

quarterfinals. But there has been something about Ashfaq all the way

:51:29.:51:32.

through that makes him by far Conlan's most dangerous opponent.

:51:33.:51:36.

Terrific performance in the quarterfinals against Scotland. And

:51:37.:51:41.

he completely outboxed the veteran from Kenya in the semifinal. But

:51:42.:51:50.

that very nasty cut following the clash of heads with Sean McGoldrick.

:51:51.:51:59.

The contest was stopped but Conlan won despite the cut. The Northern

:52:00.:52:04.

Ireland boxing team have brought in an expert coach and expert touch man

:52:05.:52:09.

for just these reasons. How important that will be we will find

:52:10.:52:15.

out. Interesting to see how Conlan boxes in this contest and what

:52:16.:52:22.

tactics he chooses. Long-range, not getting involved or the front foot

:52:23.:52:27.

and testing the chain of his opponent? We know he is a good

:52:28.:52:36.

all-rounder. When he is boxing as an orthodox boxer against Ashfaq, that

:52:37.:52:42.

is when the heads can clash and he has got to protect his cut. It will

:52:43.:52:44.

be difficult for him. I am trying to see if there are

:52:45.:52:58.

traces of blood on the forehead of Conlan, who is boxing very nicely.

:52:59.:53:03.

They don't want to get caught on the ropes because Conlan's punches are

:53:04.:53:08.

quick and accurate. The referee says, don't hold on. Back they come

:53:09.:53:13.

again. A good opening round. Not much between them. Ashfaq's defence

:53:14.:53:23.

looks pretty good. Ashfaq has the speed. Fast hands, good food, good

:53:24.:53:36.

movement. Conlan is boxing better choosing Southport tactics.

:53:37.:53:40.

Experimenting with stances. Good movement and speed from Ashfaq. Good

:53:41.:53:50.

footwork by Ashfaq and anything he might have just star in this round.

:53:51.:54:00.

Not much in it. -- he might have just nicked this round. In the last

:54:01.:54:10.

couple of seconds, not a bad round. Is there blood coming down Conlan's

:54:11.:54:16.

face? Difficult to see. The heads have clashed a couple of times. I

:54:17.:54:21.

filled Ashfaq won that. They are giving instructions. A little clash

:54:22.:54:28.

of heads but followed by a good left hand. You are going to get that.

:54:29.:54:34.

Unorthodox, always going to be a clash of heads. Conlan experimenting

:54:35.:54:37.

in that round but it has not really work. It is a close round but Ashfaq

:54:38.:54:48.

has just nicked it. What will Conlan do? He will have to come forward.

:54:49.:54:56.

That cut is nasty. It is starting to lose and really horrible. If it is

:54:57.:55:02.

opened up by a punch than a contest will be stopped. If it is opened up

:55:03.:55:05.

by a deliberate clash of heads, that could be different and it will go to

:55:06.:55:11.

the judges. Not that Ashfaq would like to win it like that, but one

:55:12.:55:13.

good punch... Conlan the tallest of the two, rated

:55:14.:55:24.

number two in the world in this division. This is a close contest.

:55:25.:55:33.

Conlan has the height and reach but he is conceding that. That suits

:55:34.:55:38.

Ashfaq. He likes his opponents to come onto him. Conlan has made the

:55:39.:55:45.

decision to go forward but that might suit Ashfaq. He is trying to

:55:46.:55:48.

get up close to him and then working his body. A bit naughty of Conlan

:55:49.:55:54.

pushing his open glass into the face of his opponent. Sticking to his

:55:55.:56:04.

stance at the moment. It is a messy contest from Michael Conlan who is

:56:05.:56:10.

not normally like this. That cut must be playing on his mind. I think

:56:11.:56:20.

so and he is getting frustrated. He is doing the work downstairs and

:56:21.:56:24.

closing the gap. Better work by Conlan inside.

:56:25.:56:34.

Paddy Barnes said he would get some stick if he did not come back with

:56:35.:56:40.

the gold and at the moment Ashfaq is still stealing bits. The second bout

:56:41.:56:45.

of the second round and Ashfaq looking composed. Conlan is just

:56:46.:56:49.

grappling at the moment. Not much clean work coming from the world

:56:50.:56:54.

rated number two of this division. Second Commonwealth Games for

:56:55.:57:07.

Conlan. Conlan is doing it again. He needs to watch himself because the

:57:08.:57:11.

last thing he can afford is to get a warning against him. That is showing

:57:12.:57:15.

the frustration we can see from Conlan. He knows he has got to get

:57:16.:57:19.

to his man and he is finding it difficult. Both of them have got to

:57:20.:57:26.

steady themselves and get more accuracy on their work. Very

:57:27.:57:30.

scrappy. Difficult to score. Very close. Conlan has not boxed as well

:57:31.:57:39.

as he has done all the way through and Ashfaq is frustrated. He is the

:57:40.:57:44.

favourite in this division and if he wins this, Conlan will have to find

:57:45.:57:47.

something that we have not seen so far to take the gold. Great stuff by

:57:48.:57:54.

Ashfaq, right and left, and Conlan not coming back with much. Again on

:57:55.:58:01.

the inside better work by Conlan. Little jabbing right hand. It is the

:58:02.:58:09.

first time he has hurt Ashfaq. The end of the round and Conlan things

:58:10.:58:13.

he has taken it. It will be ever so close. Ashfaq was boxing well on the

:58:14.:58:27.

back foot. You have got to push your opponent back. Conlan taking a lot

:58:28.:58:33.

of risks. It was scrappy. A bit naughty then and he got away with

:58:34.:58:41.

it. Conlan on the Frankfurt and punching in threes and fours. -- on

:58:42.:58:49.

the front foot. Ashfaq has got to do more and boxed better on the inside

:58:50.:58:54.

with more combinations. They have all gone for Conlan in the scoring

:58:55.:59:03.

but it was close. One judge has Conlan leading. The biggest three

:59:04.:59:16.

minutes of their boxing careers. Ashfaq came through in considerable

:59:17.:59:21.

style, beating man from the Soto, Joe Ham from Scotland and from Kenya

:59:22.:59:39.

as well. -- Lesoto. Better work by Conlan. You watch your head and you

:59:40.:59:43.

watch your head. Hard to see the state of his right eye and that cut

:59:44.:59:51.

was nasty. Ashfaq showing signs of wariness. Conlan is an experienced

:59:52.:59:55.

man and showing why he was the Olympic bronze medallist

:59:56.:00:02.

representing Ireland in the 52 kilograms division. Now it is 56 of

:00:03.:00:10.

course. Both those right hand landed at both looked good. This is

:00:11.:00:18.

slipping away from Ashfaq. He is just waiting a little too long.

:00:19.:00:28.

Ashfaq has to push him back a bit if he is to score here. And he has to

:00:29.:00:40.

score. Again, referee says to the pair of them, watch the old noggin.

:00:41.:00:49.

What a quarter this has been. In the second round, all three judges'

:00:50.:00:56.

cards went to the man from Northern Ireland, Michael Conlan. Ashfaq just

:00:57.:01:03.

went into his shell a bit there. Good footwork by Ashfaq on the turn.

:01:04.:01:39.

Michael Conlan is forcing the pace a bit more. Showing the judges he is

:01:40.:01:59.

prepared to go forward. Conlan has got him where he got him at the end

:02:00.:02:03.

of the first round, and he is doing exactly the same. What a finish to

:02:04.:02:10.

this round. And the man in red has done it. Conlan puts out a hand, but

:02:11.:02:15.

there was not a lot of convincing there. Conlan's dad gives him a hug.

:02:16.:02:23.

What a finish to that round. What a finish to the contest. Conlan had to

:02:24.:02:28.

dig deep, and I think he has done enough. Close round until the last

:02:29.:02:33.

30 seconds. But this fella in red then just pounced on his opponent,

:02:34.:02:39.

got him on the ropes. And just finished much longer. He is boxing

:02:40.:02:47.

as a southpaw here are not normally his stance, but he did it very well.

:02:48.:02:58.

Those last 20 seconds were crucial. I have a feeling that nonstop

:02:59.:03:01.

southpaw action by Conlan was to protect the eye. Well, we can all

:03:02.:03:08.

draw breath. We have a unanimous decision in favour of the winner,

:03:09.:03:14.

now gold mode list and Commonwealth men's bantamweight champion, in the

:03:15.:03:18.

red, representing Northern Ireland, Michael Conlan! Olympic bronze,

:03:19.:03:29.

European silver and now Commonwealth gold. He had a very good opponent,

:03:30.:03:39.

Thai /frack, only one year his junior. Ashfaq in his first major

:03:40.:03:47.

tournament. What an opening first round he had. But Conlan, bruised

:03:48.:03:53.

and battered and under a lot of pressure, and back in the

:03:54.:03:57.

magnificent style. He is the champion.

:03:58.:04:05.

We have been very lucky this afternoon, because I think four out

:04:06.:04:09.

of the five fights we have seen so far have been tremendous. That was

:04:10.:04:14.

probably the best so far. A mere, it could have gone either way? It could

:04:15.:04:22.

have gone either way. Even when that cut reopened, he kept coming

:04:23.:04:32.

forward. Qais did what he had to do. It was a very close fight. I am sure

:04:33.:04:36.

Qais welcome to the Commonwealths again. But overall, what a great

:04:37.:04:42.

performance by both fighters. Talking about the judging system, as

:04:43.:04:46.

we have said frequently over the last week, they have gone back on

:04:47.:04:50.

the computer system to having old-fashioned men sitting at desks,

:04:51.:04:54.

writing notes on deciding who has won. We will talk about the merits

:04:55.:04:59.

of that in a second. Here are the boys. Those are the roommates.

:05:00.:05:09.

Michael, congratulations. He said he would not allow you back in the ring

:05:10.:05:13.

tonight. I was sitting there going please, God, don't let this man slay

:05:14.:05:18.

me when I get home! That was a hard fight. Qais Ashfaq, from the start,

:05:19.:05:25.

I have been watching him. Very skilled boxer. He is one for the

:05:26.:05:33.

future. He is young. I am only a wee bit older. But what a talent he is.

:05:34.:05:38.

He took the first round and made me drive on myself. How did you feel

:05:39.:05:45.

when your cut reopened in the first round? Well, you know yourself, I

:05:46.:05:53.

did not even know the cut was open. I was like, what are you going on

:05:54.:05:57.

about? Would you say this was your best performance in the, most games?

:05:58.:06:05.

-- in the Commonwealth Games? I almost lost the first round before,

:06:06.:06:12.

but today I knew I had it in me to drive on. It was one of the toughest

:06:13.:06:20.

contests. Qais is coming in now. How much do you owe your gold medal to

:06:21.:06:23.

your team, who have patched up and make sure you could compete? The

:06:24.:06:32.

lads on the team were having a last push to get me to this stage of the

:06:33.:06:37.

competition. And it is great to see my father on one of the biggest

:06:38.:06:41.

stages in the world, the Commonwealth Games. He must be

:06:42.:06:48.

unbelievably proud. Congratulations. Qais, come in. You have to be proud

:06:49.:06:55.

of the performance. It could have gone either way. Yeah, I think I

:06:56.:07:05.

proved myself well. I have only just turned 21. Like you say, here's an

:07:06.:07:11.

Olympic bronze medallist, European silver medallist. You are still

:07:12.:07:19.

young, and you have got many more Commonwealths and Olympics to come.

:07:20.:07:23.

What is next for you? Next, world and Europeans next year. I am still

:07:24.:07:31.

learning, still young. It must have been a great experience for you. It

:07:32.:07:36.

was an amazing experience. I've obviously want a gold medal, but I

:07:37.:07:44.

have boxed Olympians. I know I am at the top level. But it was not my day

:07:45.:07:51.

today. And they were saying his or you in the dressing room couple of

:07:52.:07:54.

hours ago and said you were really calm. What that a front, or were you

:07:55.:07:58.

at ease? No, I was calm. The pressure does not bother me too

:07:59.:08:02.

much. I thrive under pressure, but it was not my day today. It was a

:08:03.:08:09.

good fight. I will be back. I know I can beat these kids on my day. For

:08:10.:08:14.

you on the podium later. We have got a medal ceremony taking place in the

:08:15.:08:18.

ring. Another Australian gold medal. It has been an Australian and

:08:19.:08:23.

Northern Ireland they so far. Let's go back to that, and then we will

:08:24.:08:31.

have a chat with Amir Khan about what he thinks about the changes to

:08:32.:08:39.

scoring. The boxes are just taking their positions ahead of this medal

:08:40.:08:42.

ceremony for the 52 kilograms flyweight division. What a moment it

:08:43.:08:49.

is in the careers of these young boxers. Representing Scotland, Reese

:08:50.:09:03.

McFadden! And just listen to the ovation that the 19-year-old

:09:04.:09:08.

carpenter from Motherwell receives ahead of receiving his bronze medal.

:09:09.:09:16.

Reese McFadden produced a brilliant run through to the final four. I

:09:17.:09:21.

would call it a fairy tale round, but it was born of his hard work and

:09:22.:09:26.

immense talent. He beat the world number one, Andrew Selby, in his

:09:27.:09:31.

opening bout. He beat the reigning champion in his second bout. Then he

:09:32.:09:35.

deposed the reigning bronze medallist from Delhi four years

:09:36.:09:46.

ago. Then he was out done in the semifinal. Abdul Omar! Another

:09:47.:09:58.

immensely talented youngster, Abdul Omar from Ghana, just 20 years of

:09:59.:10:06.

age. He is also a real talent, in stark contrast to McFadden. A tall,

:10:07.:10:16.

rangy boxer. And he is not averse to mixing it up on the inside. Terrific

:10:17.:10:32.

tournament for him. The winner of the Silver, representing Pakistan,

:10:33.:10:39.

Muhammad Waseem! The captain of the Pakistan boxing team. He was a

:10:40.:10:45.

bronze medallist in Delhi four years ago. Here, he has gone one better

:10:46.:10:54.

and made it through to the final. But his boxing this afternoon

:10:55.:10:57.

and made it through to the final. perhaps the void of the zip and zest

:10:58.:11:00.

and energy we have seen in his previous bouts in the tournament.

:11:01.:11:05.

Nonetheless, a brilliant display, especially considering the adversity

:11:06.:11:12.

the Pakistan team have had to overcome that Amir was describing,

:11:13.:11:17.

with their lack of facilities. Representing Australia, Andrew

:11:18.:11:25.

Moloney! Andrew Moloney raises his arms in triumph. He occupies top

:11:26.:11:30.

spot on the medal rostrum here at the Hydro Arena. Performance is full

:11:31.:11:38.

of astute, tactical boxing, plenty of patience. He plants a kiss on

:11:39.:11:46.

that Commonwealth Games gold. Second of the afternoon for Australia.

:11:47.:11:52.

Perfect record of two golds in two finals, with one to come. We will

:11:53.:11:59.

now hear the Australian national anthem, played in his honour.

:12:00.:12:24.

Andrew Moloney, the 23-year-old from Victoria. He only took up boxing to

:12:25.:13:14.

prove his fitness for Aussie rules football. Now, with his fellow

:13:15.:13:21.

boxers, he stands on the top spot of the medal rostrum here at the Hydro

:13:22.:13:29.

Arena. He takes Australia's 15th old medal in boxing in Commonwealth

:13:30.:13:34.

Games history. That was an emphatic performance by Andrew Moloney. I

:13:35.:13:38.

think most of us, if we had been judging that, would have given the

:13:39.:13:42.

gold medal to him. But it is an interesting discussion, Amir,

:13:43.:13:46.

especially for events like this, where most people watching will only

:13:47.:13:51.

watch amateur boxing in the Olympic Games and major championships. They

:13:52.:13:54.

don't watch on a week in, week out basis. In days gone by, there was a

:13:55.:13:57.

computer system that marked the scoring. There were clearly defined

:13:58.:14:04.

areas to be hit and a computer registering it or not. Now we have

:14:05.:14:12.

gone back to almost a reassuringly old-fashioned way, other bloke

:14:13.:14:16.

sitting at a desk going, yes, he hit him. Is that better? It is hard to

:14:17.:14:21.

say. When the computer scoring was around, people said we should go

:14:22.:14:26.

back to the old school. Now it is back to the old school, people say

:14:27.:14:30.

we should go to computer scoring. With the fight we just saw, it was

:14:31.:14:36.

so tight. You know a bit about boxing, and you said to me, I don't

:14:37.:14:41.

know who has won this. So it becomes terribly subjective. And you don't

:14:42.:14:48.

one that. -- you don't want that. They are looking at how many punches

:14:49.:14:53.

thrown, the quality of the punching, the movement and everything. You

:14:54.:14:56.

don't know what the judge might be watching. He is sat ringside. He

:14:57.:15:01.

might be looking at aggressiveness. If you are not aggressive, you could

:15:02.:15:08.

be out. There were a few fighters who did not win I thought might have

:15:09.:15:17.

won under a computer scoring system. Is this to the disadvantage of the

:15:18.:15:23.

counterpunching? It is ethnically a disadvantage for a counterpuncher.

:15:24.:15:26.

In amateur boxing, the Cubans are the best. I don't think there will

:15:27.:15:31.

be many Cubans winning gold medals at the next Olympics, because they

:15:32.:15:34.

are always on their back foot and they are counter fighters. The

:15:35.:15:39.

people who win the fights are forward fighters. It is an

:15:40.:15:44.

interesting debate. The other thing is relevant to the last fight we

:15:45.:15:48.

have seen about the headgear. He bore watching for the first time on

:15:49.:15:52.

a Saturday afternoon -- people will be watching for the first time on a

:15:53.:15:55.

Saturday afternoon and seem that there was no headgear this

:15:56.:15:59.

afternoon. It was a major factor in whether Michael Conlan was going to

:16:00.:16:02.

fight. The governing body have said they are going to re-examine whether

:16:03.:16:06.

putting head guard back on amateur boxers works. Conlan just about made

:16:07.:16:20.

it. I think they will re-examine their decision but if you look at

:16:21.:16:24.

the Commonwealth Games, 15 mailboxes were cut and had to be fixed. -- 15

:16:25.:16:41.

men were cut. Pump up the volume, here comes the first Scottish

:16:42.:16:51.

finalist of the day. Charlie Flynn. And this is Scotland against

:16:52.:16:55.

Northern Ireland. Joe Fitzpatrick. The home nations are guaranteed a

:16:56.:17:02.

medal here, but the overwhelming majority of the 16,000 people packed

:17:03.:17:06.

into the Hydro want this to be the first gold medal that Scotland of

:17:07.:17:12.

the boxing at the Commonwealth Games. And we have Josh Taylor

:17:13.:17:15.

coming up in the final fight of the afternoon against Junias Jonas, the

:17:16.:17:27.

Namibian, the best fight of the day. But this is a great opportunity for

:17:28.:17:33.

the young Scottish man. These welcome to the ring from Northern

:17:34.:17:37.

Ireland Joe Fitzpatrick. -- please welcome. Fitzpatrick from Northern

:17:38.:17:47.

Ireland begins his ring walk. The 60 kilograms lightweight division. He

:17:48.:17:57.

also wears a determined face as he steps into the spotlight of this

:17:58.:18:01.

arena. It proves to be a magnificent amphitheatre for the men at this

:18:02.:18:10.

contest. He boxed really impressively to arrive at this

:18:11.:18:15.

final, the 19-year-old. His opponent is only slightly older at 20. Two

:18:16.:18:20.

prodigiously precocious as talented men have made it through to this

:18:21.:18:31.

gold medal bout in the gold medal clash of the lightweight division.

:18:32.:18:49.

Ladies and gentlemen, time to introduce our boxers. Representing

:18:50.:19:12.

Scotland, Charlie Flynn! And across the ring in the blue corner,

:19:13.:19:16.

representing Northern Ireland, Joe Fitzpatrick! Referees from

:19:17.:19:32.

Kazakhstan. Three bouts of three minutes. They come together and

:19:33.:19:44.

received their final instructions. You can see the height advantage

:19:45.:19:50.

that Fitzpatrick enjoys over Flynn. The contest begins. The boxer

:19:51.:20:01.

wearing blue with the southpaw is from Northern Ireland. You might

:20:02.:20:05.

have noticed that huge clump of petroleum jelly of scoring the mark

:20:06.:20:09.

beneath the left eye of Fitzpatrick. It was picked up in the semifinal.

:20:10.:20:15.

Flynn is representing Scotland in red and he has an eye injury as

:20:16.:20:24.

well. How will the two boxers approach this? Will they take it to

:20:25.:20:29.

their opponent aggressively? I don't think I have ever seen a boxer

:20:30.:20:34.

coming onto the ring with so much grease on his wound. That should

:20:35.:20:40.

dictate his tactics. Southpaw and Orthodox. No question that

:20:41.:20:49.

Fitzpatrick as to keep his distance and protect that wound. Conlan did

:20:50.:20:53.

very well and took some risks going forward and found a way to win but

:20:54.:20:57.

it is a risk when you are going forward and your heads are going to

:20:58.:21:03.

clash, then anything can happen. Flynn is the more compact boxer,

:21:04.:21:09.

five feet seven. He is a bustling come forward boxer as well,

:21:10.:21:13.

effective at getting inside the height and reach of taller

:21:14.:21:17.

opponents. Ranked 23rd in the world, the highest remaining ranked boxer

:21:18.:21:22.

and accommodation. Because at semifinal stage, the man in blue,

:21:23.:21:31.

Fitzpatrick, eliminated Michael Alexander from Trinidad and Tobago,

:21:32.:21:37.

world number 15. Good tactics from Flynn, closing down the gap to the

:21:38.:21:46.

taller southpaw. He has got to punches opponents coming forward but

:21:47.:21:51.

you have to give credit to Flynn. Closing the gap down. In his

:21:52.:22:01.

semifinal he was against the Welsh man Joe Cordina. He conceded the

:22:02.:22:05.

opening round but came on strong in two and three.

:22:06.:22:24.

Every forward forays from the Scot is bringing increases in decibel

:22:25.:22:34.

activity from a crowd. He throws his right hand and tips to the left with

:22:35.:22:38.

his head, so he can come back with the left. Good little move. Good

:22:39.:22:50.

tactics. Good round for the Scot, I thought. Bright start. He

:22:51.:22:55.

acknowledges the crowd because he thinks so, too. Mike removes the

:22:56.:23:01.

mouthpiece and gets to work on the instructions. That highs holding up.

:23:02.:23:10.

Surely Flynn has taken the opening round. -- his eye is holding up. Bit

:23:11.:23:18.

scrappy here and there but he has caught Fitzpatrick with a lovely

:23:19.:23:21.

left hook and finished the round very strong. I suspect the judges

:23:22.:23:26.

have all gone for him in the opening round. Yes, clean sweep of the

:23:27.:23:39.

judges in that opening round for Charlie Flynn. Careful attention

:23:40.:23:40.

being paid to that eye injury. We move into the second round in the

:23:41.:24:01.

60 kilograms lightweight final. Joseph Fitzpatrick, the reigning

:24:02.:24:06.

Northern Ireland should opening champion. Flynn has been pushed back

:24:07.:24:14.

so change in approach from Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick meeting

:24:15.:24:22.

fire with fire. Good start to the round but scrappy. Often southpaw

:24:23.:24:27.

coming forward is easier to hit right hand. He knows he is behind,

:24:28.:24:36.

so a definite change in tactics. Fitzpatrick really taking it to

:24:37.:24:37.

Flynn. And in taking it to the man from

:24:38.:24:47.

Scotland, an increasing amount of exchanges from close quarters. The

:24:48.:24:55.

referee has intervened with a command to break. Lovely right hand

:24:56.:25:03.

from Flynn. Switching the attack and finding better, more accurate work,

:25:04.:25:04.

Flynn. Flynn continuing to bob and weave

:25:05.:25:19.

and getting back inside. Nice left hand from Fitzpatrick parried

:25:20.:25:25.

effectively with his forearm. This contest is not suiting Fitzpatrick

:25:26.:25:29.

for me. He is getting in accurate, tired and scrappy on the inside. The

:25:30.:25:34.

young Scot is really willing to work on the inside. It has suited him, no

:25:35.:25:42.

question, the close quarters stuff. Fitzpatrick had a terrific year in

:25:43.:25:48.

2011, experiencing the Commonwealth youth games, taking the bronze medal

:25:49.:25:53.

at the Isle of Man, and then a third-place finish at the European

:25:54.:26:00.

youth championship in Dublin. He is still only 19 and he finds himself

:26:01.:26:05.

contesting Commonwealth Games gold. He is facing a determined little

:26:06.:26:08.

boxer who has been inspired and encouraged by the home crowd. On the

:26:09.:26:20.

front foot once more. Uppercut on the inside while Fitzpatrick is

:26:21.:26:28.

holding on. Both boxers exchanging body shots. He is throwing the left

:26:29.:26:35.

hand from too far out. He has got to judge first, Break down the

:26:36.:26:39.

distance, then throw his left hand. He is falling short, his feet come

:26:40.:26:44.

square, and that allows Flynn to work on the inside. Good round again

:26:45.:26:52.

for Charlie Flynn. Charlie Flynn fighting furiously at close range.

:26:53.:26:57.

That is the end of round number two and again, the same as at the end of

:26:58.:27:03.

the first round. He took the first round in unanimous fashion. As the

:27:04.:27:11.

round progressed, Flynn was having more success and picking his punches

:27:12.:27:16.

more accurately. Lovely right hand there, bit of quality to find the

:27:17.:27:21.

space and gap. Lovely right hand again on the outside. Fitzpatrick

:27:22.:27:25.

coming forward but his feet square on his hands down. Looking at the

:27:26.:27:29.

scores, every judge has gone for Charlie Flynn. Very good performance

:27:30.:27:33.

from Flynn in that round. So into the final round we go.

:27:34.:27:59.

Charlie Flynn has taken both of the opening rounds for all of the

:28:00.:28:06.

scoring judges. Fitzpatrick from Ulster really has it all to do.

:28:07.:28:19.

He hasn't found an answer to the clever little movements and punch

:28:20.:28:27.

picking at Flynn has demonstrated. At the start of this round, Flynn

:28:28.:28:31.

moving to his left, moving away from the southpaw, clever. He circled and

:28:32.:28:39.

moves to his left. Panting with the right hand, -- punching. Clever

:28:40.:28:50.

tactics. The fourth contest for both of these men during the lightweight

:28:51.:28:55.

tournament. They had a bye in the opening round and have produced

:28:56.:29:01.

really eye-catching performances. That catch to the head produced a

:29:02.:29:10.

huge response from the crowd. I think Fitzpatrick has just got to go

:29:11.:29:15.

for it now. Two down, all or nothing. Got to try and find the

:29:16.:29:23.

power shots. We are at the midpoint of this final round. It is still

:29:24.:29:31.

Flynn on the front foot and taking the contest to Fitzpatrick. We are

:29:32.:29:38.

seeing exchanges when the boxers within punching range. An effective

:29:39.:29:51.

shot against a shorter boxer intent on coming forward. If he is moving

:29:52.:29:53.

to the left, shot against a shorter boxer intent

:29:54.:29:57.

on coming forward. If he he is going to miss. That is what is happening

:29:58.:30:01.

here. The movement is crucial and young Flynn keeps moving to the

:30:02.:30:06.

left, away from the danger shot. Finishing on the left hook. That

:30:07.:30:12.

movement to the side. Fitzpatrick needs to adjust his feet and come

:30:13.:30:16.

onto a right hook. He has not found that shot yet.

:30:17.:30:37.

a punch to end the contest. Flynn remains incredibly composed. And

:30:38.:30:46.

incredibly relaxed. The crowd increased their volume once again.

:30:47.:30:59.

There goes the bell. And the crowd here at the Hydro Arena stand to

:31:00.:31:06.

applaud young Charlie Flynn, just 20 years old. Surely he has just

:31:07.:31:13.

secured himself the lightweight title here at the Glasgow

:31:14.:31:18.

Commonwealth Games. A quick kiss for the canvas and a warm embrace from

:31:19.:31:23.

his coaching staff. What a great performance from such a young man.

:31:24.:31:30.

He boxed superbly well and the semifinal, but here, he raised the

:31:31.:31:35.

tempo again against a tricky guy. But he got the tactics wrong today,

:31:36.:31:46.

Fitzpatrick. Flynn's movement to the left was crucial. And he played to

:31:47.:31:51.

the crowd. Jumps up on the ring, Commonwealth champion. What a moment

:31:52.:32:01.

for young Charlie Flynn. Huge admirer of one of the greatest

:32:02.:32:04.

amateur boxers of all time, Dick McTaggart. This announcement will

:32:05.:32:10.

surely see him emulate the legendary Scotsman. Ladies and gentlemen, the

:32:11.:32:18.

judges are in agreement. The winner by unanimous decision and now the

:32:19.:32:21.

Commonwealth gold medallist and men's lightweight champion, in the

:32:22.:32:26.

red corner, representing Scotland, Charlie Flynn! What a moment for

:32:27.:32:37.

Motherwell's Charlie Flynn. The 20-year-old postal worker has just

:32:38.:32:42.

delivered a gold medal for himself, his club and his adoring fans. Such

:32:43.:32:50.

clever boxing during that final. Such tactical astuteness on show

:32:51.:32:56.

throughout the entire tournament. And the man who was the highest

:32:57.:33:00.

ranked boxer in the Commonwealth Games lightweight competition has

:33:01.:33:06.

secured himself top spot on the medal podium. Charlie Flynn,

:33:07.:33:13.

Commonwealth Games lightweight champion, in front of his adoring

:33:14.:33:19.

home fans in a Hydro Arena that is packed to capacity, a moment he will

:33:20.:33:23.

never forget. And at just 20 years old, surely we will see this man on

:33:24.:33:28.

the Olympic boxing circuit for many years to come.

:33:29.:33:36.

JOHN INVERDALE: the Hampden roar earlier this week was for Eilidh

:33:37.:33:39.

Child, but that is surely the biggest cheer for any Scottish

:33:40.:33:43.

medallist and it is a Scottish gold medallist. We will talk to him in a

:33:44.:33:48.

moment. Joe has made his way down to see us again. You gave it

:33:49.:33:54.

everything. It was a good fight. I don't know what was wrong with me,

:33:55.:34:00.

just a bit sluggish. Tired? Just hanging about here from 11 this

:34:01.:34:06.

morning. It is strange. It is a tough schedule, fight after fight

:34:07.:34:10.

after five. It is always hard. Tough fight last night, so that probably

:34:11.:34:17.

made me tired as well. Did not get much sleep last night. But fair play

:34:18.:34:23.

to Charlie. Did that cut play on your mind? I was trying not to think

:34:24.:34:29.

on it too much. I was just drained, I don't know what was wrong. Thanks

:34:30.:34:34.

for joining us. And hey, the champion. Well done. Fantastic

:34:35.:34:43.

performance. Thanks. He is a really awkward boy. Sometimes you need to

:34:44.:34:51.

be awkward to beat awkwardness. It was a hard fight. What tactics did

:34:52.:35:05.

you use for this fight? I was not going straight back, I was kind of

:35:06.:35:14.

angling down. He likes his 12s. So I came across an cut him off. And what

:35:15.:35:19.

did you make of the crowd? When they announced you the winner? Honestly,

:35:20.:35:29.

the crowd are unbelievable. The reception you got when you were in

:35:30.:35:31.

the ring before the fight began was amazing. It was like a thunderstorm,

:35:32.:35:41.

man. I can't explain it. I would just like to thank everybody who has

:35:42.:35:46.

helped me, especially my dad, who has been training me for the past

:35:47.:35:52.

four years. Two hours every morning all stops at first all his leisure

:35:53.:35:58.

time. My mum has been washing my clothes. I would not be anywhere

:35:59.:36:05.

without them. The work that goes on in the background, nobody will

:36:06.:36:09.

understand it. Did you catch their eye on the final bout? Your family

:36:10.:36:18.

and friends, could you see them? No, they were like ants out there. It

:36:19.:36:23.

was amazing. I would like to thank God for the thing he has given me.

:36:24.:36:32.

There are other countries that have not got much, so you are thankful

:36:33.:36:35.

for your health, your well-being, the place you are in. And you might

:36:36.:36:40.

want to thank the Royal Mail? Come on, the Royal Mail! The mailman

:36:41.:36:49.

delivers once again. All the boys, the managers and all the crew, Jason

:36:50.:36:59.

Grant! You are Commonwealth gold medallist now. What is next for you?

:37:00.:37:10.

I don't know, man. I am not used to hearing that, gold medal! I don't

:37:11.:37:17.

know what is next. You know what I mean? Maybe Olympics. Just wait and

:37:18.:37:23.

see. A lot of funding is needed. I work part-time, and everybody I am

:37:24.:37:30.

fighting is full-time. I think there is a job for you as a chat show

:37:31.:37:35.

host. Fancy that? I would be a right good laugh! Congratulations. You are

:37:36.:37:43.

Commonwealth Games champion. Well, from one champion will have a

:37:44.:37:47.

medal ceremony in a moment to one two is just about to enjoy it. This

:37:48.:37:53.

is the great moment for Michael Conlan, from Northern Ireland. Well,

:37:54.:38:00.

there was a man familiar to boxing fans around the world, especially in

:38:01.:38:06.

Scotland. The flyweight games gold medallist from 1998 in Kuala Lumpur.

:38:07.:38:11.

And to help him present the medals and trophies, it was meant to have

:38:12.:38:17.

been the president of the Commonwealth Games Association from

:38:18.:38:20.

Papua in New Guinea, but that is clearly not he. A very disappointed

:38:21.:38:31.

Shaun McGoldrick got the gold medal in Delhi four years ago. He was not

:38:32.:38:42.

able to make it two golds out of two. My colleague from BBC radio

:38:43.:38:53.

Scotland is presenting the medals. He had the misfortune to come up

:38:54.:38:58.

against a very much in four Michael Conlan from Northern Ireland. He

:38:59.:39:09.

receives his quaich. The winner of the bronze medal, representing

:39:10.:39:12.

Kenya! 29 years of age. I'm not sure if we

:39:13.:39:23.

will see him in another Commonwealth Games. He is young enough to compete

:39:24.:39:28.

in four years' time, when everything moves to the Sunshine Coast of

:39:29.:39:38.

Australia. But he was outboxed by Qais Ashfaq of England in the

:39:39.:39:41.

semifinal, so has to contend himself with a bronze medal. Now we get to

:39:42.:39:51.

the silvers and the gold. The winner of the Silver medal, representing

:39:52.:40:01.

England, Qais Ashfaq! He won his opening round in the final and just

:40:02.:40:06.

could not sustain the pressure because the man he was up against

:40:07.:40:09.

had just that little bit more experience. But he has just turned

:40:10.:40:14.

21 and as he said in an interview not long ago, there is a lot more to

:40:15.:40:18.

come from him. He can take great heart on this and I am sure we will

:40:19.:40:24.

be seeing him on podiums around the world. But there can only be one

:40:25.:40:38.

winner, only one gold medallist. Olympic bronze European silver. The

:40:39.:40:45.

boy from Belfast, Northern Ireland, Michael Conlan. He boxed splendidly

:40:46.:41:00.

throughout this tournament. Got a nasty gash above his right eye.

:41:01.:41:16.

And for the second time here, in the boxing tournament in Glasgow 2014,

:41:17.:41:25.

everyone will rise for the national anthem of Northern Ireland.

:41:26.:42:12.

# Danny Boy (NATIONAL ANTHEM OF NORTHERN IRELAND).

:42:13.:42:45.

APPLAUSE. A lot of applause for Conlon, he was

:42:46.:43:00.

absolutely terrified not to win and sharing room with Paddy Barnes if he

:43:01.:43:11.

had not won. A wonderfully understated smile from Michael

:43:12.:43:16.

Conlon. A sense of a job well done. You have been there, sometimes you

:43:17.:43:22.

don't want to scream from the rafters, there is that feeling

:43:23.:43:26.

inside that all of the hard work has paid off. Especially when you have

:43:27.:43:32.

done all that long training camp, spending time away from your family

:43:33.:43:36.

and friends, you want to win, and relax. What I love about boxing,

:43:37.:43:43.

these lads, they are shaking each other's hands, just minutes ago they

:43:44.:43:49.

were fighting each other. They have their respect for each other. It is

:43:50.:43:54.

the simplest and most are raw of all sports. I hate you, you hit me. You

:43:55.:44:01.

are going there to hurt someone and beat someone up. Great to see so

:44:02.:44:08.

much respect. The atmosphere, I hope that home you can feel what it is

:44:09.:44:14.

like it. Absolutely fantastic. Going up a few decibel is, and it will go

:44:15.:44:23.

up for Josh Taylor. He was in many ways their best hope for goals

:44:24.:44:28.

before the games. He fought Maxwell yesterday, put on a great

:44:29.:44:31.

performance. It would have been an amazing final, but it happened in

:44:32.:44:37.

the semis. He looked really good, really sharp, awkward, quick hands,

:44:38.:44:44.

power, speed. I am looking forward to this fight. He's fighting Jonas,

:44:45.:44:56.

from Namibia, he holds his hands so low, you think you could get in, but

:44:57.:45:01.

he's so quick on his feet and his hands. Great footwork. Very quick,

:45:02.:45:09.

very strong. Taylor has two watch those shots. When they come from the

:45:10.:45:17.

waist, you don't see them. I'm sure Josh has watched some video, and

:45:18.:45:25.

knows what to expect. Charlie Flynn is still doing interviews, he may

:45:26.:45:29.

miss his medal ceremony. He will talk to anybody tonight. He was

:45:30.:45:34.

inspired by the crowd in that last contest. There are some occasions

:45:35.:45:43.

where the crowd can change the way you fight. You get in the moment,

:45:44.:45:49.

and the crowd makes you more intense when you are looking to be calm. You

:45:50.:45:55.

want to be calm, but it is great when the crowd get a you. You fight

:45:56.:46:00.

for the crowd, it makes a big difference, a big help. People

:46:01.:46:07.

supporting you, pushing you. That is the cheering for Josh Taylor. If you

:46:08.:46:18.

have been robust two o'clock, we have had a couple of hours of the

:46:19.:46:24.

most fantastically intense, entertaining, dynamic competition in

:46:25.:46:29.

the ring. Six really good fights. This will round off the afternoon's

:46:30.:46:34.

entertainment. Everybody has been getting into this in a big way.

:46:35.:46:45.

Listen to the raw as -- listen to the noise as Josh Taylor enters the

:46:46.:46:53.

ring. Charlie Flynn will no doubt want to watch fellow countrymen in

:46:54.:46:56.

this Commonwealth Games boxing final. Josh Taylor already at

:46:57.:47:06.

ringside, taking it all in. He has lit up this tournament, only 20

:47:07.:47:13.

years of age. This man from Namibia, they have only ever won one

:47:14.:47:21.

medal at the Commonwealth Games. Like Taylor, he has won every

:47:22.:47:27.

contest by unanimous decision, has had to box four times to get there.

:47:28.:47:38.

Beating Sean Duffy in the semifinal. He had to be at his Olympic best.

:47:39.:47:52.

Ladies and gentlemen, now introducing in the red corner,

:47:53.:48:00.

representing Scotland, Josh Taylor. Across the ring in the blue corner,

:48:01.:48:28.

representing Namibia, Junias Jonas. The referee from Ireland, Mr Mickey

:48:29.:48:32.

Gallagher. Three, three-minute rounds.

:48:33.:48:51.

Let's not forget the men coming out of the red corner, the Scotsman,

:48:52.:48:58.

Josh Taylor already has a Commonwealth Games medal, winning

:48:59.:49:04.

silver four years ago in Delhi, in the lightweight division. He is

:49:05.:49:11.

hoping to turn silver into gold here. Is that trans-mutable? We will

:49:12.:49:21.

have to find out. The box for Britain in the Olympics two years

:49:22.:49:31.

ago, against a very exciting talent, from Namibia. A very unorthodox

:49:32.:49:37.

style. He has a very long reach, very fast hands. Richie Woodall?

:49:38.:49:45.

Taylor has to raise his game. Yesterday against Sam Maxwell, most

:49:46.:49:50.

people predicted that would have been the final. In his mind, he may

:49:51.:49:59.

have thought he has a ready won this gold. He has one heck of an

:50:00.:50:04.

opponent, this guy is very talented, very fit, makes a lot of mistakes.

:50:05.:50:10.

Takes a lotta risks. Throws shots from all different angles, a

:50:11.:50:19.

difficult man to get sued, so tool. Taylor had a tough passage, fairly

:50:20.:50:23.

straightforward against the boxer from Botswana, then the guy from

:50:24.:50:33.

Mauritius, Zach Davies from Wales, and Sam Maxwell in the semi.

:50:34.:50:42.

Cautious stuff from Josh Taylor. Not getting close enough to this fellow.

:50:43.:50:47.

Good footwork, conceding a lot of height and reach. This guide

:50:48.:50:52.

thrashes those hands from waist level. -- this guy. He should target

:50:53.:51:01.

the left uppercut, triggering the attack. As his opponent is coming

:51:02.:51:08.

forward, the hands are very low, his feet are crossing. He comes forward,

:51:09.:51:15.

the feet cross, open, low, you have to hit the target.

:51:16.:51:19.

The referee steps in, voted the best official in the 2012 Olympics. You

:51:20.:51:33.

could got -- could not get a better man for a final. When he gets to

:51:34.:51:40.

him, causing him problems, Taylor. Great last 30 seconds. There is the

:51:41.:51:47.

sweet left hand from the Scotsman. He is justifying his favourite's

:51:48.:51:52.

tag. Good end of the round by Josh Taylor. Would be very surprised if

:51:53.:51:59.

he has not got it. He boxed a very clever there, using the crowd to

:52:00.:52:01.

read him up. -- to G him up. It was a good round, boxing clever.

:52:02.:52:24.

Let's have a look at the scores, every judge. Terrific finish, just

:52:25.:52:34.

measuring his man up and stop coming up against someone so much bigger,

:52:35.:52:41.

with so much reach advantage. He worked in map, and press time is

:52:42.:52:46.

advantage. This is the final of the men's welterweight division, 64

:52:47.:53:01.

kilograms. -- worked him out, pressed home his advantage. Taylor

:53:02.:53:08.

working again, straight left hand. Taylor is a good counterpuncher.

:53:09.:53:14.

When he gets on the inside, stay compact, held those in. Coming out

:53:15.:53:24.

of the clinch, lending the FIFA. -- landing the hook. Slipping away from

:53:25.:53:36.

his opponent there. Taylor covering up nicely. Lots of experience, a

:53:37.:53:44.

couple of World Championships. Going out to eventual medal winners. In

:53:45.:53:49.

London, winning his opening contest, then losing to Valentino of

:53:50.:54:04.

Italy. Taylor boxing nicely, very nearly got clipped with the right

:54:05.:54:09.

hand. Jonas showing signs of fatigue. He has raised the tempo

:54:10.:54:15.

slightly, starting to throw a few more shots, but that leaves him

:54:16.:54:21.

open, he makes so many mistakes. Low hands. There is the hook. A good

:54:22.:54:37.

little sequence by Jonas, boxing a little better. His feet have slowed

:54:38.:54:44.

down. Bad mistake by Jonas, getting a -- away with it. I am watching for

:54:45.:54:58.

Taylor's left hook. We know that Josh Taylor can punch with that

:54:59.:55:10.

left-hand in particular. He has experience in the Olympics, Taylor,

:55:11.:55:16.

clever with it. That is nice. And again by Taylor. The right hand was

:55:17.:55:22.

not as accurate as the left. A good right hand by Taylor, changing

:55:23.:55:27.

direction, frustrating the younger, taller, raw or a man. 20 seconds

:55:28.:55:39.

remaining. -- raw fighter. Adapting very well, counterpunching, coming

:55:40.:55:48.

back again. Clever boxing. A good right hand by Jonas. That might be a

:55:49.:56:00.

split round. I think Taylor has definitely won it. This guy just up

:56:01.:56:11.

the tempo slightly. He leaves himself open.

:56:12.:56:21.

I think Taylor has got it on all three judges' cards again. All in

:56:22.:56:36.

favour of the Scott, who is three minutes away from becoming

:56:37.:56:41.

Scotland's second successive gold medallist here in Glasgow 2014. I

:56:42.:56:49.

wonder what Charlie Flynn's take on this one will be. In less than three

:56:50.:57:05.

minutes, Josh Taylor will hear the last bell and I am pretty sure what

:57:06.:57:10.

will go around his neck will be a Commonwealth gold medal to add to

:57:11.:57:18.

the silver he won four years ago. Jonas, the big fellow in bloom from

:57:19.:57:22.

Namibian, will have to do a lot of work if he is going to steal this.

:57:23.:57:30.

The front foot tactics of Jonas will suit Josh Taylor. He boxes better as

:57:31.:57:43.

a counterpuncher. Showing his experience. The crowd here are

:57:44.:57:53.

encouraging Josh Taylor to get on his bike a bit. Jonas is coming

:57:54.:57:59.

steaming forward. We must only man apology, because we questioned his

:58:00.:58:03.

fitness -- we owe him an apology. He has such a high work rate, Taylor is

:58:04.:58:08.

having to cover up. Sometimes when you see boxers going

:58:09.:58:20.

like this, you say to yourself, why did he not do this in the first

:58:21.:58:25.

round? We have said that this fellow is a very fit kid indeed.

:58:26.:58:39.

Jonas is winning this hands down at the moment. That was a slip,

:58:40.:58:47.

according to the referee. Josh Taylor is conceding shots in

:58:48.:59:06.

this last round. Jonas is giving everything he has. Taylor is having

:59:07.:59:18.

to cover up. He is under pressure like never before in this

:59:19.:59:23.

tournament. Remember, he has got through against three very strong

:59:24.:59:30.

opponents. Jonas has kept his best to last, but it is all a bit too

:59:31.:59:35.

late. Gallagher will ask them to break up, perhaps for the last time.

:59:36.:59:40.

Jonas, whose tactics have been perfect in this round, why did you

:59:41.:59:44.

do this earlier on? He has won the round. He has lost the first two.

:59:45.:59:50.

That is probably what Taylor is thinking. I am pretty sure Taylor

:59:51.:00:05.

has done enough. Scotland will have another gold medallist here on home

:00:06.:00:11.

territory. What a Commonwealth Games the host nation is having. What a

:00:12.:00:15.

performance from this young man, 20 years of age. Josh Taylor, silver

:00:16.:00:22.

medallist from Delhi four years ago, has got home. He gambled a bit in

:00:23.:00:28.

that run, because he knew he had won the first two rounds. Jonas clearly

:00:29.:00:36.

won the last round, in our opinion. Taylor rallied at the end. He was

:00:37.:00:43.

under pressure. Jonas kept his man on the ropes. A Tory ground for

:00:44.:00:54.

Taylor. -- a torrid round for Taylor. Jonas certainly took that

:00:55.:01:08.

last round. Maybe not enough to make it a 10-8 round. The jubilant Taylor

:01:09.:01:15.

will be even happier when that hand is raised. Ladies and gentlemen, we

:01:16.:01:21.

have the judges' scorecards. The winner by unanimous decision, now

:01:22.:01:25.

gold medallist and Commonwealth men's light welterweight champion,

:01:26.:01:29.

in the red corner, representing Scotland, Josh Taylor! Scotland's

:01:30.:01:38.

second gold medal in 2014 goes to Josh Taylor. And everybody gave Josh

:01:39.:01:50.

Taylor the last round as well. I am very surprised at that. Jonas will

:01:51.:01:55.

be disappointed that he did not even win on anybody's card. But Josh

:01:56.:02:02.

Taylor will not care about that. He is ecstatic. Gold number two of

:02:03.:02:05.

these games in the boxing arena for Scotland. This one courtesy of a

:02:06.:02:15.

thoroughly delighted Josh Taylor. JOHN INVERDALE: the afternoon ends

:02:16.:02:17.

on the highest of high notes for Scottish boxing and for the 16,000

:02:18.:02:23.

or so here in the Hydro Arena. To mark your card for tonight, we have

:02:24.:02:28.

six fights coming up for you, six more finals. Coverage starts at

:02:29.:02:33.

seven on BBC Three. But all afternoon on BBC One, we have had

:02:34.:02:38.

two gold medals for Australia, two for Northern Ireland, but obviously,

:02:39.:02:43.

we finish with two for Scotland. The Scots thought Josh Taylor was their

:02:44.:02:48.

man, and he did what we thought. Great performance. This amazing

:02:49.:02:54.

crowd of people were out there, rooting for Josh Taylor. He put on a

:02:55.:03:00.

great performance. The first two rounds, he won comfortably. The last

:03:01.:03:05.

round, he knew he had the fight in the bag. A whole gaggle, I suspect

:03:06.:03:14.

that is probably his family, maybe his mum. Charlie was saying earlier

:03:15.:03:20.

that you can't do it without your support team. It is agony, because

:03:21.:03:27.

they can't win the fight. You have got to do the fighting. Josh, I know

:03:28.:03:31.

you want to say well done to everybody. Was that your family?

:03:32.:03:36.

Yeah, my mother, my sister and my girlfriend. They are over the moon.

:03:37.:03:41.

So am I. Can't believe it. Doesn't feel real. We just had a

:03:42.:03:46.

conversation about Charlie about what it was like for him. How was it

:03:47.:03:50.

for you when you walked in and got that operation? Has handing up on

:03:51.:03:56.

the back of my neck. -- hairs standing up on the back of your

:03:57.:04:03.

neck. Unbelievable. I felt it at the Olympics in London, but that was

:04:04.:04:10.

mad. I saw that you were on your back foot. Did you know you had the

:04:11.:04:15.

fight in the bag 's yeah, I knew I had two rounds in the bag, so I

:04:16.:04:20.

wanted to stay safe. Did not want to go with silly shots. I just wanted

:04:21.:04:25.

to secure the gold. What does this mean to you? I have trained for this

:04:26.:04:33.

for years. I have dreamt of this for god knows how long. Can't wait to

:04:34.:04:36.

stand on top of the podium. Are you going to sing flower of Scotland?

:04:37.:04:44.

100%. Congratulations. Two gold medals for Scotland, back-to-back.

:04:45.:04:49.

Fantastic for everybody. And brilliant for amateur boxing in

:04:50.:04:55.

Scotland. Over the moon. Well done. Look forward to seeing you on the

:04:56.:04:58.

podium. The lone piper is waiting in the ring. That is for the first

:04:59.:05:04.

airing of flower of Scotland this afternoon, which Jim Neilly will

:05:05.:05:08.

describe for us. While waiting for the Ox is to appear, what has been

:05:09.:05:12.

your take on the afternoon so far? Some good boxing. Especially the

:05:13.:05:20.

Scottish fighters, what good performances they put on. They

:05:21.:05:24.

soaked up all the atmosphere and the crowd. But overall, the boxing has

:05:25.:05:29.

been really good, starting with the mitre weights and finishing with

:05:30.:05:37.

Josh on a serious high. The bagpipes play, and this is the moment. The

:05:38.:05:44.

man has written his own headline. He said, the mailman delivers, and the

:05:45.:05:51.

mailman has. These are the bag pipes, and the Commonwealth Games

:05:52.:05:58.

theme for Charlie Flynn. And I suspect that his face, and that

:05:59.:06:01.

clenched fist and those clenched teeth will be the pictures on all

:06:02.:06:04.

the editions of the Scottish newspapers tomorrow. Who knows what

:06:05.:06:10.

the future holds for Charlie Flynn? But this is a moment he will never

:06:11.:06:14.

forget. Those of us who have been lucky enough to be had they will

:06:15.:06:17.

remember it for a long time, the way he performed, the way he celebrated,

:06:18.:06:21.

the way he spoke afterwards. I suspect he may have something in

:06:22.:06:25.

store for us during the course of this medal representation. Let's go

:06:26.:06:33.

back to that. Charlie Flynn, still absolutely

:06:34.:06:36.

buzzing with delight as he makes his way towards the ring. He will take

:06:37.:06:41.

his place on the gold medal rostrum at grade Williams round -- after a

:06:42.:06:52.

brilliant round. He is the man who occupies them to stage as the

:06:53.:07:01.

medallists take their position in anticipation of receiving their

:07:02.:07:19.

respective medals. The medals will be presented by the 1958

:07:20.:07:24.

Commonwealth and 1956 Olympic gold medal athlete, Richard Mactaggart!

:07:25.:07:36.

Dick McTaggart, one of the finest amateur boxers of all time and a

:07:37.:07:39.

real hero for Charlie Flynn, will present the medals. And Wellington

:07:40.:07:53.

Miller! Great to see Dick McTaggart. Does not look to be too

:07:54.:08:01.

far above his fighting weight. The winner of the bronze medal,

:08:02.:08:04.

representing Wales! The Welshman comes away with a

:08:05.:08:26.

Commonwealth Games bronze medal. Acknowledged in his support in the

:08:27.:08:39.

crowd. He joins his clubmate as a Commonwealth bronze medallist. What

:08:40.:08:45.

a moment it must be to be receiving that prize from the great Dick

:08:46.:08:58.

McTaggart. Joe Cordina, the bronze medallist. He had tough bouts all

:08:59.:09:10.

the way through, but comes away with some championship hardware to show

:09:11.:09:22.

for it. Representing Trinidad and Tobago, Michael Alexander! Michael

:09:23.:09:28.

Alexander prepared for this Commonwealth Games down in Cuba. If

:09:29.:09:36.

she ranked boxer in the world, he was sensational throughout the

:09:37.:09:40.

tournament -- 15th ranked Ox. But then just lost a bit of zip in his

:09:41.:09:51.

final round. Just 21 years old, he surely has a bright future in

:09:52.:10:02.

Olympic boxing. The winner of the silver medal, representing Northern

:10:03.:10:10.

Ireland, Joe Fitzpatrick! Joe Fitzpatrick is still a teenager.

:10:11.:10:17.

Took Commonwealth youth bronze in 2011. And here, at just 19, he has

:10:18.:10:34.

got himself a silver medal. He said he felt a bit flat when he

:10:35.:10:37.

considered their hard passage through to the gold medal fight, but

:10:38.:10:42.

a wonderful achievement for the man from Northern Ireland. Listen to the

:10:43.:10:54.

ovation that this Manuel Neuer she's -- that this man will receive.

:10:55.:11:00.

Representing Scotland, Commonwealth champion, Charlie Flynn. The roof

:11:01.:11:08.

has been raised in the Hydro, young and old taking inspiration from this

:11:09.:11:16.

man. Charlie Flynn. Ranked 23 in the lightweight division. He produced a

:11:17.:11:23.

brilliant tournament, what a moment for him, to receive a handshake, and

:11:24.:11:30.

Commonwealth gold medal from his idol, the Commonwealth Games

:11:31.:11:38.

champion from 1988. Charlie Flynn, Commonwealth champion. Ladies and

:11:39.:11:44.

gentlemen, the national anthem of Scotland.

:11:45.:12:07.

In the presence of one of the finest boxers of all time, Dick McTaggart,

:12:08.:13:46.

he has been presented with his championship gold. That I suspect is

:13:47.:13:54.

the defining Scottish moment of these Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

:13:55.:14:01.

The face that will define the games. Two great champions separated by 56

:14:02.:14:08.

years, Dick McTaggart, and Charlie Flynn. If you have not heard about

:14:09.:14:16.

Dick McTaggart, in 634 amateur fights, he won 610. Absolute legend

:14:17.:14:23.

very figure in Scottish sport. Olympic gold medallist. Who's to say

:14:24.:14:30.

that this man will not be an Olympic gold medallist in a couple of years

:14:31.:14:34.

time? Definitely, looks like he has the skills. He has the charisma to

:14:35.:14:41.

go all the way. He is a likeable person. He can go all the way, and

:14:42.:14:49.

be the face of boxing in Scotland. Only 20 years old, long way to go

:14:50.:14:54.

yet. What an experience to win this gold, and move onto a bigger

:14:55.:14:59.

tournament like the world, Europeans. Shortly they may come

:15:00.:15:04.

knocking and say how that turning professional? You would think, hang

:15:05.:15:12.

on, stay amateur, couple more years, getting more mature. There will be a

:15:13.:15:18.

lot of promoters knocking on his door. He is a funny character.

:15:19.:15:27.

Imagine him in a press conference. One thing about the press

:15:28.:15:32.

conference, it will be long. Tonight, four fights to look forward

:15:33.:15:37.

to, four English boxers, Anthony Fowler, you are looking forward to?

:15:38.:15:41.

He was very good, putting his opponent down, very strong. I think

:15:42.:15:50.

he can go all the way. He has good boxing skills. He had some tough

:15:51.:15:56.

fights, got through them. I would put my money on him going all the

:15:57.:16:06.

way. Marshall, Fitzgerald, and Joe Joyce, against the Australian,

:16:07.:16:10.

Little Ashes thing to be missing off. He is looking good, the

:16:11.:16:20.

heavyweight. Definitely he can end it with a gold medal, that would be

:16:21.:16:24.

amazing for England. Thanks for being with us, looking forward to

:16:25.:16:30.

tonight? Looking forward to it. Just thinking about the headlines,

:16:31.:16:37.

Charlie is the darling, Bonnie Prince Charming. He works at the

:16:38.:16:48.

sorting office Damia Motherwell, to all the guys and girls, one heck of

:16:49.:16:57.

a party. -- down in Motherwell. They supported him to train for these

:16:58.:17:03.

games. As for Josh Taylor, his dad calls him Pebbles, not rocky yet. --

:17:04.:17:16.

not Rocky yet. A couple of gold medals for Northern Ireland, moving

:17:17.:17:22.

up from 24th to 15th. Let's show you that table. England smashing their

:17:23.:17:30.

target of 146. It looks as if they will be topping the table for the

:17:31.:17:37.

first time since 1986. Scotland with their 19th gold, in fact 18th and

:17:38.:17:45.

19. Let's remind you of the headlines, pretty eventful. As I was

:17:46.:17:52.

saying, the wait for gold for Northern Ireland is over, Paddy

:17:53.:17:57.

Barnes and Michael Conlon, they moved up to 15th. Two for Scotland

:17:58.:18:06.

with Charlie Flynn and Josh Taylor. Nicola Adams making history as the

:18:07.:18:10.

first woman to win a boxing gold medal at the Commonwealth Games. It

:18:11.:18:16.

was controversial, a split decision over Michaela Walsh. The husband and

:18:17.:18:28.

wife team, Joanna and Paul Drinkhall winning the mixed doubles table

:18:29.:18:34.

tennis. A provisional disqualification and suspension for

:18:35.:18:39.

a failed drugs test following the 400 metres final. She finished

:18:40.:18:46.

fourth. Testing positive for a stimulant. More on that story, we

:18:47.:18:53.

hear her bees sample will be tested on Sunday. -- other sample will be

:18:54.:19:03.

tested on Monday. But take a break for the news now.

:19:04.:19:04.

Jason Mohammad and Hazel Irvine present the afternoon's live coverage of the Commonwealth Games on the penultimate day in Glasgow. Boxing dominates the afternoon with seven gold medals decided, including three in the women's event which is appearing at the Commonwealth Games for the first time. England's Nicola Adams won the first ever women's Olympic boxing gold at London 2012 and will hope to repeat the trick.
