'There's not a chance I lost' - Walsh heartbroken after final defeat

Daniel Repacholi celebrates winning gold with his family

Daniel Repacholi celebrates winning gold with his family

In front of her watching parents and a willing home crowd on Australia's Gold Coast, the 22-year-old Nicolson benefited from a debatable split-points decision in her featherweight final against the unfortunate Michaela Walsh of Northern Ireland.

"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".

And like Jamie, she is an awkward southpaw who likes to counter-attack.

"I had a little chat to them right before I went in and they were definitely there with me", Nicolson said. This time, I 100% won. Hopefully we can do it again in the World Championships.

"I am ultimately going to win gold here, I'm very confident", she said.

It was a almost day for the Walsh family: brother Aidan also finished with silver after losing to the classy Pat McCormack of England in the welterweight class.

Super heavyweight Frazer Clarke claimed number six for England as he won the last bout against Satish Kumar of India in a bruising encounter.

"I'd like to congratulate Skye, she's a great ambassador for women's boxing".

Kenya had 10 fighters, seven men and three women in this year's club games.
