Fighting for the first time in twenty-years in her home town of Leeds, Nicola Adams moved a step closer to a world title fight.

The double Olympic gold medal winner was matched against the Mexican teenager Marvan Salazar in a fight whereby the rounds were three minutes in length as opposed to the normal two.

As it turned out, Adams was far too good for her teenage opponent and the referee called the fight off in the third round when Salazar was pinned against the ropes and in trouble.

Adams, boxing at flyweight, now has two wins out of two fights in her professional career and talking about the fight, the lady from Leeds had this to say,

‘There is nothing like the support of my home crowd.

‘I was not even thinking about the stoppage, but with the three-minute rounds I knew I could.

‘I was able to settle more, I could see where I was throwing the punches and landing the power shots.’

The win moves Adams career record to 2-0 with 1 win coming by KO whilst Salazar sees hers slip to 5-1.
