Glagsow 2014 was the first Commonwealth Games for 18-year-old David, winning the final and breaking a gold medal drought for kiwi boxers in his weight division at the 2014 Feliks Stamm Memorial in Poland.

Nyika's gold medal match proved how quick and agile he was for his hard-hitting opponent, securing New Zealand's first boxing gold medal since David Kenny in 1990.

Nyika became the first New Zealander to step on to the podium for any boxing medal since 2002.
