Taylor finds Englishman too tough

New Zealander Anthony Taylor's Commonwealth Games boxing campaign came to an abrupt end last nightwhen he was outclassed by England's Bradley Saunders in a one-sided light welterweight bout in New Delhi.

The height and reach that the Tauranga boxer conceded proved too much as Saunders scored almost at will to win the secound round encounter 10-0.

Taylor found it hard to get close to his opponent, who has won a European championship gold medal in the 64kg division, and he was often reduced to defending.

He is the second of New Zealand's six boxers to be eliminated.
