Nicola Adams OBE

Nicola Adams OBE
NICOLA ADAMS has found virtually every path in boxing has led to golden glory.

Her stunning success at major amateur tournaments began in 2011 at the European Union championships in Poland right through to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

The only disappointment came at the 2012 World Championships when she collected silver, but otherwise it was gold and more gold.

World champion, two-time Olympic champion, Commonwealth Games gold, European champion – Adams is the leading lady and pioneer of the modern elite in women’s boxing.

Her greatest hour came at the 2012 London Olympics, when she defeated the world No.1 Ren Cancan from China in the final to claim the first Olympic women’s boxing gold medal.

Four years later in Rio, Adams successfully defended her crown, defeating French girl Sarah Ourahmoune in the final.

Her remarkable achievements as an amateur made her one of the most instantly recognisable sportswomen in Britain, the face of billboards, an advertiser’s dream and acknowledged as one of the greatest female boxers ever.

And since turning professional in April 2017 her dream has been to unify the flyweight division and in the next 12 months believes she could take all the major belts.

Nicola would welcome a unification with brilliant WBC flyweight champion Ibeth Zamora Silva.

She won the interim WBO crown by outpointing Mexico’s Isabel Millan last October, but was but was elevated to full world champion in the summer due to Arely Mucino’s unfortunate injury and illness.

She drew against Maria Salinas in her first defence in September in a contest of the highest standard.

Adams must have been doing something right. Promoter Frank Warren had been reluctant to sign female boxers, but had a change of heart having watched Nicola as an amateur.

He said: “Nicola is a national icon already and is without doubt Great Britain’s most successful amateur boxer of all time. She is a tremendous fighter and has a wonderful personality that lit up both Olympic games where she captured two consecutive gold medals.”
