David Nyika will go down in history as one of the best New Zealand boxers and an extraordinary feat to his name. At Gold Coast 2018, 22-year-old Nyika became the first New Zealand boxer to win back-to-back two gold medals in two different weight classes. The quick and agile boxer competed in the Men's 81Kg at Glasgow 2014 and has packed 10Kg to make his new weight class in Australia.
By triumphing in the ring at Glasgow, Nyika secured New Zealand's first boxing gold medal since David Kenny in 1990.
He also became the first New Zealander to step on to the podium for any boxing medal since 2002.
