Boxer Barnes wants to make history

Belfast boxer Paddy Barnes says he wants to make history by becoming the first Northern Ireland fighter to successfully defend a Commonwealth Games title.

Barnes, captain of the NI boxing team at the Glasgow Games, secured his place in the light-flyweight category by beating Ugandan teenager Fazil Juma Kaggwa.

He will now fight Devendro Laishram of India in the final.
