Kom eyes Tokyo gold swansong after claiming Commonwealth crown at 35

There is only one fight separating Samoan boxer, Ato Plodzicki Faoagali, from a dream finish at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. Boxing is in the blood of her family but Nicolson never met either of her brothers Jamie and Gavin after they were killed in a vehicle crash in 1994 while on their way to training.

"I have no words, I'm so excited right now, over the moon", she said.

Northern Ireland had to settle for their third silver medal of the opening finals session as Brendan Irvine dropped an entertaining unanimous decision to India's Gaurav Solanki.

Walsh reacts in anger as Nicolson roars.

Neither woman was able to land a significant blow for much of Saturday night's contest, with three out of five judges scoring the fight 29-28 in Nicolson's favour.

The Oregon festival tried to book SZA, Daniel Caesar, and a few other artists but was turned down due to the radius clause. She's been Googled way more than Beyonce, The Weeknd , and any other Coachella performer you can think of.

"In Kenya we go straight to the finals, we are not many boxers and you only fight once in a year, if I could get a chance to fight severally then I would get used,"She told Citizen Digital".

It was an emotional victory for the Australian.

"I believe it should have been a split point decision, but she had the advantage because she was strong, I was supposed to fight in the light flyweight category, and she is from bantamweight, if I had more strength this fight could have been mine".

But two other finals went the other way as Jason Whateley was defeated by New Zealand's David Nyika and Caitlin Parker was beaten Welsh fighter Lauren Price.
