Can Nicola Adams become one of the greats in the Women’s game?

Nicola Adams is already a legend in British women’s boxing, with two Olympic gold medals on her CV and another six golds and four silvers elsewhere from a glittering amateur career.

Whatever happens in her time as a professional nobody can take that way but, having ditched her amateur status and joined the pros, theLeeds-born fighter is determined to get to the top under the guidance of Frank Warren.

She kicked off her life as a pro with a points victory over Argentina’s Virginia Noemi Carcamo on April 8 in Manchester and followed it up by stopping Maryan Salazar of Mexico in front of her adoring home fans last month.

The bout with Salazar was the first time a British female fighter had competed over three-minute rounds but, far from being daunted, the ever-smiling Yorkshire woman simply stated prior to the fight that it gave her more time to knock out her opponent.

She was of course true to her word and it is that inner confidence that sets her apart from her peers.

Whether she can go on to win aworld title only time will tell as there are plenty of toughopponents to get by who have beenfighting three-minute rounds for years and have many more professional miles in their legs.

But Adams has made an encouraging start and her work ethic will certainly stand her in good stead for the tougher tests to follow.
Time is not on her side, however, as the 2012and 2016 Olympic flyweight champion will be 35 in October and Salazar is nearly half her age.

Her trainer, Jason Spencer, feels she will soon be ready for a world title fight and, with age against her, that will clearly be the objective.
As a measure of how tough it will be against the best in her division, Adams is said to be eyeing about with Mexican legend Zulina Munoz, who had lost only once and picked up 48 professional wins before losing to compatriot Guadalupe Martinez Guzman on May 13.
The 29-year-old was unbeaten for 10 years heading into the fight but was second best to her 25-year-old opponent.

Both have been regularly boxing over three rounds and are battle-hardened professionals and it would be interesting to see if Adams could make the adjustment necessary.

The good thing from the British fighter’s point of view of that she has taken a realistic approach to the next stage of her career and said prior to the Salazar fight that she knows being successful outside the amateur ranks and winning a world title is not going to be easy.

Following Adams’ career over the next couple of years should be fascinating. If you fancy Adams and chances of winning a world title in the next year then the latest boxing predictions at Free Super Tips will be useful to any women’s boxing fans who a flutter.

Indeed, there are a few high-profile pundits and journalists who have doubted whether she has what it takes to become one of the greats of the professional game but, whatever happens between now and the day she hands up her gloves, nobody can question her ambition, dedication and the fact she is a splendid example to youngsters who fancy trying their luck in the toughest sport of all.
