Scotland have claimed double boxing gold as Samuel Hickey and Sean Lazzerini won their middleweight and light heavyweight bouts.

Hickey defeated 19-year-old Australian Callum Peters while Lazzerini edged Wales’ Taylor Bevan.

Rosie Eccles took gold for Wales as she beat Australia’s Kaye Scott in the light middleweight category.

She becomes only the second Welsh female to win Commonwealth boxing gold after Lauren Price in 2018.

Earlier, England’s Kiaran MacDonald lost out on a gold medal in the flyweight final to India’s Amit Panghal as he upgraded his silver medal from 2018.

Minimum weight fighter Demie-Jade Resztan of England also lost out on the gold medal by unanimous decision to India’s Nitu Nitu.
