Nicola Adams 'devastated' by cancellation of USA debut

Nicola Adams and Alexandra Vlajk

Olympic boxing champion Nicola Adams' Las Vegas fight has been called off at the last minute.

Adams had been due to get in the ring at 3pm in Las Vegas - or 11pm in the United Kingdom - a few hours before the middleweight title clash between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin.

There was a problem with the pre-fight test meaning Vlajk failed her medical, forcing the Hungarian to pull out of her scheduled bout in Las Vegas.

She tweeted: "I'm devastated that I'm not boxing tonight, due to a problem with my opponent, thank you everyone for your support and kind messages".

Adams jumped at the chance to appear on the high-profile card, hoping to achieve a goal she's held since the days when she would stay up into the early hours to watch her heroes on television.

The Las Vegas fight on a huge pay-per-view event would have been Adams's most high profile fight as a professional and increased her exposure in the United States and internationally.
