NEWPORT boxer Sean McGoldrick’s dream of making history at Glasgow 2014 is over.

The St Joseph’s fighter was beaten by Northern Ireland’s Michael Conlan in his semi-final at the SECC and failed to become the first boxer to retain a Commonwealth Games title.

The 22-year-old, who won gold in the 56kg division in Delhi four years, ago lost a unanimous decision after Conlan was unable to continue following an accidental clash of heads in the second round.

The fight was stopped on medical advice just 13 seconds before the end of the second and the Northern Irish man took the verdict 20-18 with all three judges.
