Washington boxer Luke McCormack says he doesn’t care about winning a bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games – as he only wants gold.
The 22-year-old defeated Australian opponent Liam Wilson 5-0 in his quarter-final match on the Gold Coast.
Luke is now guaranteed a bronze medal, and will face Jonas Jonas of Namibia on Friday, with the winner to progress to the gold medal bout.
He said: “The crowd was pretty noisy out there but I just wanted to shut them up.
“He said he remembered sparring me years ago but he won’t forget this now. I thought I boxed really well and I even got to showboat a bit, to remind the judges how easy I was finding it.
“It’s a bronze medal but I’m not even bothered about bronze, I want the gold – nothing less.”
McCormack is fighting in the light welterweight division (64kg).
Meanwhile, Luke's twin brother Pat will also hope to guarantee a medal today.
He is up against Musa Bwogi of Uganda later this morning in the welterweight division (69kg).
