Northern Ireland boxer Michaela Walsh is ready to derail “golden girl” Nicola Adams and claim Commonwealth Games glory on Saturday.

Olympic champion Adams is a huge favourite to be crowned the first Commonwealth women’s boxing gold medallist by repelling the feisty challenge of Belfast flyweight Walsh at the 10,000-capacity Hydro in Glasgow.

Rising star Walsh sealed her dream final with a gutsy win over powerful Indian Pinki Jangra on Friday, coming on strong in the second half of the contest to squeeze a split decision on the three judges’ cards.
