Nicola has today signed with Frank Warren Promotions and BT Sport as she moves to the Professional boxing ranks.
The announcement came at a packed press conference in central London, where Frank Warren commented:
“Of all of all the signings I have made in my 35 years in the sport of boxing, this is among the most I have been excited about.
“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.
“I am absolutely delighted that this excellent role model has decided to turn professional with me, and entrust me and my broadcast partner BT Sport to guide and showcase what I’m sure will be a fabulous professional career, in which we intend to lead her to become a multiple world champion and build considerably on her already tremendous legacy in the sport.”
Adams said: “I’m so excited to be announcing my first professional fight. This is the next step on my journey and to be working with BT Sport and Frank Warren is amazing. Together we can help take woman’s boxing to a new levels and I can’t wait to get to get in the ring in April and start working towards becoming a world champion one day.”
