A case of Delhi belly has halted the Tauranga boxer Anthony Taylor's progress at the Commonwealth Games.

Taylor was beaten in the second round of his light welterweight bout on points by Bradley Saunders of England.

The New Zealand manager Billy Meehan says Taylor wasn't at his best after an upset stomach over the past 24 hours.

Middleweight Nathan McEwan and super heavyweight Joseph Parker are both in action tonight.
