Ystrad Mynach’s Lauren Price boosted her hopes of success at the Tokyo Olympics by claiming European Games gold in Minsk, Belarus.

Commonwealth Games champion Price gained a 4-1 split decision win over Rio 2016 silver medallist Nouchka Fontijn in the 75kg final.

Dutch fighter Fontijn, the defending champion, had beaten Price in the semi-finals of the World Championships in India last November.

"I think about the Olympics every single day, all these tournaments and training camps, it is all preparation for Tokyo," said Price.
