Interesting there in the British Empire Games. In his semi final Michael Conlan was stopped in the 2nd round due to a bad cut but because it was caused by a clash of heads and Conlan was ahead on the judges cards at the time, he goes through to the final. The amateurs have stopped wearing headguards.
Paddy Barnes has said that it's harder to win the National Championships than win a medal at the Empire Games. At least we think that's what he said.
