The latest boxing news from Camden and Haringey
Former Haringey Police amateur Nicola Adams has had to postpone her planned bout against WBO world flyweight champion Arely Mucino because of injury.
Adams was due to compete in her maiden world title fight on a busy Frank Warren show at the Royal Albert Hall on March 8.
However, an injury sustained by the 36-year-old in preparation for that fight has seen it postponed until later this year.
It is a blow for the two-time Olympic champion, who has five wins from five fights since turning professional in April 2017.
