Adams out for revenge

Great Britain’s Nicola Adams (4/5 Gold Medal Winner) is confident that she will make history on Thursday and become the first woman to win Olympic boxing gold after reaching the final of the women’s flyweight competition.

The 29-year-old Leeds fighter has made impressive progress throughout the tournament and outclassed five-time world champion Mary Kom in the semi-finals.

Adams took the opening round 3-1 and never looked back as her quick feet, fast hands and longer reach saw her through to an 11-6 victory and a guaranteed silver medal.

Standing in her way of sporting immortality is old foe Ren Cancan (Evens Gold Medal Winner), a three-time world champion from China who has beaten Adams in the last two world finals.

However, the Briton is confident that she can come out on top this time, particularly with a vociferous Excel Centre behind her.

“I’ve been training for this moment since I was 12 years old and to think it is finally here is just incredible,” Adams said.

“I am going to treat it like a normal tournament, and hopefully the crowd will give me a boost to edge away and get the gold. I’ve beaten her once before and I’m definitely confident I can go out and do it again.”
