Fitzpatrick wants to swap bronze for gold

Belfast boxer Joe Fitzpatrick says he wants to swap the bronze medal he earned by winning his quarter-final for a gold later in the week.

Immaculata boxer Fitzpatrick, 19, beat Kenyan Nicholas Okongo Okoth on a unanimous points decision in the 60kg lightweight division.

He will now contest a semi-final on Friday night in the hope of securing at least a silver at the Glasgow 2014 Games.
