Nicola Adams Wins WBO Interim, Wants Full Champ

By Elliot Foster

Nicola Adams began her road to a shot at a full world title in solid fashion.

The double Olympic champion claimed the vacant WBO interim flyweight title with a points win.

Adams, 35, will be targeting a shot at Arely Mucino, the 29-year-old Mexican who currently holds the belt, after a decent display.


‘The Lioness’ was in against Mucino’s fellow Mexican Isabel Millan, exclusively live on BT Sport, at the Morningside Arena in Leicester.

And she came out on top in what was something of a passable affair, as part of the supporting cast to the WBO super-lightweight title eliminator between Jack Catterall and Ohara Davies.

Adams had the better of the majority of proceedings, though Millan, 33, had success in the latter rounds.

The referee was Phil Edwards, who had to break the pair up on a number of occasions, and the three scoring judges handed in tallies of 96-94, 97-93 and 97-93 to Adams, who did her fight camp with the Ingles in Sheffield.

She will be hoping for some news in due course from her promoter Frank Warren regarding that elusive world title shot.

She's a bum. The real shock is she managed to get a mdeal at some competition which means she actually defeated some people.

Awful stuff. Adams is supposed to be one of the best female boxers, but she is terrible. Women's boxing sucks.
