The latest boxing news from Camden and Haringey

Ex-Haringey Police amateur Nicola Adams is back in the ring at the Leicester Arena on Saturday as she fights for the interim WBO world flyweight title.

The 35-year-old faces Mexico’s Isabel Millan for the strap on a Frank Warren promotion that will be screened live by BT Sport.

Adams, who is known as ‘The Lioness’, will hope to secure a world title in just her fifth fight since turning professional last year.

The two-time Olympic gold medallist was last in action in May when she stopped Soledad del Valle Frias in Leeds.

Adams will look for another stoppage again on Saturday, but faces a tough opponent in Millan.

Previously the WBF world flyweight champion, the 33-year-old Mexican has a record that stands at 22 wins, four losses and one draw.
