Nicola Adams Promises To Return Even Stronger

Nicola Adams has vowed to return to the ring better than ever after shaking off the hand injury that has stalled her progress since she famously claimed Olympic gold.

The Leeds flyweight was ruled out for six months after an operation on the right hand she had strained prior to the London Games.

But Adams is now now targeting a comeback at the European Union Championships in Keszthely, Hungary in July - and believes her enforced lay-off might have done her good.

"I have got back to punching and sparring and my hand is fine. I am looking forward to getting back in the ring in July," said Adams.

"It has been really frustrating not being able to box and watching a lot of my team-mates going off to compete in tournaments since the Olympics.

"I am itching to get back in there but I think I will probably be improved. I have had plenty of time to concentrate on technique and sharpness.

Adams was among the Great Britain stars greeting winners of the schools Golden Gloves tournaments at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield.

She added: "A lot of the young girls here look up to me as a role model and that is really important for them.

"I just used to look up to Muhammad Ali but I would have liked to have had a female boxer who I could relate to more.

"It will be really inspiring for a lot of these girls to come to the gym for the first time and having seen what happened at the Olympics, they now know it is possible for them to go all the way."
