Delicious Orie



Delicious Orie won the super-heavyweight gold medal for England in the last bout of the boxing tournament at his Birmingham hometown on the penultimate day of the Commonwealth Games.

Orie showed off his skill the first round, landing long-range jabs on India's Sagar Ahlawat. The biggest cause of celebration came when Orie - dubbed by some as the 'new Anthony Joshua' - recovered to beat Sagar with a patient performance, which was tipped in his favour by a late flurry of punches.

Orie, who was born in Russia but grew up in Wolverhampton after his family moved to England when he was a child, took up the sport at 19 years-old at the Jewellery Quarter Boxing Club in Birmingham.

Six years later he was representing Team England and taking home a gold medal. He has been one of the poster boys for the Games and it felt fitting - certainly for the emotionally invested home fans - that he was victorious in the final boxing bout.
