Northern Ireland, England boxers set to score

Four years ago, Northern Ireland’s boxers left Melbourne empty-handed but they could win as many as five Gold medals at the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi.

It’s shaping up as the Battle of Britain at the Talkatora Indoor Stadium as Northern Ireland and England each has five boxers in the finals, spread across seven of the 10 weight categories.

England can match its Melbourne 2006 Games haul of five Gold medals, but only if all its boxers win today.

India left Australia with just one Gold medal in 2006 but this year on home turf it can win three, with Suranjoy Mayengbam (Flyweight, 52kg), Manoj Kumar (Light Welterweight, 64kg) and Paramjeet Samota (Super Heavyweight, +91kg) competing in the night session.

Northern Ireland can claim Gold in the opening bout when 2008 Olympic Bronze medalist Paddy Barnes takes on 2006 Commonwealth Games Gold medalist Jafet Uutoni (NAM) in the Light Flyweight (49kg) class.

Asian champion and Commonwealth Championships Gold medalist Mayengbam will fight Benson Njangiru (KEN) in the Flyweight (52kg) final.

In the Bantamweight (56kg), European Bronze medalist Sean McGoldrick (WAL) will battle for Gold with Manju Wanniarachchi (SRI).

England team captain Thomas Stalker and Josh Taylor (SCO) clash in the Lightweight (60kg) and KUMAR fights Bradley Saunders (ENG) in the Light Welterweight (64kg).

Callum Smith (ENG) will step into the ring against Patrick Gallagher (NIR) in the Welterweight (69kg) division.
Anthony Ogogo (ENG), who controversially eliminated world number one Vijender Singh in the semifinals on Monday night, faces Eamonn O’Kane (NIR) in the Middleweight (75kg) Gold medal bout.

Callum Johnson (SCO) will take on Thomas McCarthy (NIR) in the Light Heavyweight (81kg) bout to end the afternoon session.

Commonwealth Championships Gold medalist Simon Vallily (ENG) fights Steven Ward (NIR) in the Heavyweight (91kg) and India will be hoping to end the competition on a high when Samota faces Tariq Abdul Haqq (TRI) in the Super Heavyweight (+91kg) final.
