Sixteen home nations athletes will compete for Commonwealth Games titles on the final day of boxing in Australia.

Northern Ireland siblings Michaela and Aidan Walsh won their semi-finals to earn shots at gold on Saturday.

Compatriot Carly McNaul will meet England's Lisa Whiteside at -51kg after both won semi-finals on Friday.

England's McGrail said he wants to "take the medal back for my family", while Leicester's Paige Murney said she would win gold "for the kids back on the estate" after reaching the women's -60kg final.

There will be 16 gold medal matches on Saturday and England's Galal Yafai (46-49kg) will be a strong favourite after delivering the only stoppage win of Friday's early session.

Wales' Lauren Price progressed and will meet Australian opposition in Caitlin Parker for -75kg gold and Northern Ireland's Brendan Irvine beat Scotland's Reece McFadden to move into a final with India's Gaurav Solanki at -52kg.

England's Pat McCormack will face Northern Ireland's Aidan Walsh at -69kg, while Walsh's sister will compete with the home crowd roaring on Australian Sky Nicolson in the -57kg final.

Except for that female boxer from Northern Ireland who went crazy when she lost to the Australian. Then the Scottish male boxer did too and another got arrested for glassing someone outside of a nightclub the other day. Not sure what's going on with those boxers
