Nicola Adams Grabs More Gold With Glasgow Win

Nicola Adams repelled the brave challenge of Belfast flyweight Michaela Walsh to claim Commonwealth Games boxing gold in Glasgow.

The 31-year-old Olympic champion was simply too classy for Walsh, who will go home with a richly deserved silver medal after a promising week of performances.

But remarkably the three ringside judges did not quite see the fight the same way with one scoring in favour of Walsh as Adams triumphed only via split decision.

Fearless Walsh went into the fight convinced of her ability to cause an upset and started well as she snaked home a right hand in the opening seconds.

But Adams stepped up a gear, landing a left and right combination which wobbled Walsh, and following up with a sharp right hand as she pursued the Northern Ireland fighter around the ring.

Adams never let go of her dominance, relying on all her considerable experience to keep Walsh at bay and land shots on the button almost at will.

After a tangle sent the pair rolling on the floor early in the third round, Walsh had some success with her left hand, but Adams responded with a good right and resumed command.

At the end of a more competitive fourth both fighters raised their arms in triumph, but the reality was that Adams had once again proved herself a class apart.
