Pakistan's Haroon Khan v Wales' Andrew Selby in flyweight fight with a bronze at stake
Pakistan's Haroon Khan will take on Wales' Andrew Selby for flyweight bronze

The Commonwealth Games swimming competition comes to a conclusion on day six with the dominant Australia team eager to finish on a high.

Australia have won 15 golds and have the relays to come, with England hoping to spoil the party on Saturday.

In the athletics, England duo Chris Tomlinson and Greg Rutherford go in the men's long jump final.

Wales' Andrew Selby and Pakistan's Haroon Khan, brother of Amir, will battle for boxing flyweight bronze.

Khan believes he should have been picked for Great Britain's squad after declaring himself the best flyweight fighter in the country.

Selby said: "Haroon's had many chances with the GB squad but he's just ended up getting hurt. I'm not the greatest at sparring but I still did him. He rushes in without thinking and I'll just pick him off."

Younger Khan boxes to win

Khan opted to fight for Pakistan at the Games and said he bore no ill will towards his Great Britain rivals.

The 19-year-old said: "This is the time for me to prove everyone wrong and I'm sure I'll do that."

Meanwhile, Olympic bronze medallist Paddy Barnes of Northern Ireland takes on Australia's Andrew Moloney for a place in the light flyweight quarter-finals.

The fights will take place between 0830-0930 BST.

There are nine swimming finals on the last day of competition in the pool.

England's Simon Burnett is hoping to add a 50m freestyle medal (1130 BST) to the silver he won in the 100m free.

He is also likely to be part of England's 4x100m medley (1321 BST) team, which will battle the might of Australia.

Australia's Leisel Jones will be hoping to win her 10th Commonwealth gold - a feat only achieved by compatriots Susie O'Neill and Ian Thorpe.
