Nicola Adams added to GGG vs Canelo Undercard

By BoxNation - 09/07/2017 - Comments

Double Olympic Champion Nicola Adams OBE faces Hungary’s Alexandra Vlajk in her third professional contest on the blockbuster Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady “GGG” Golovkin card at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday 16th September.

Yorkshire hero Adams made an impressive start to her professional career at the Manchester Arena in April, cruising to a comfortable points win over tough Argentinian Virginia Noemi Carcamo. She controlled the range and pace of the fight with her impressive footwork, punch variety and timing.

In her next contest Adams forced an explosive stoppage against game Mexican Maryan Salazar at the First Direct Arena in her home city of Leeds. The 34-year-old pinned her opponent in the corner and the referee stepped in to confirm her second professional victory in the Flyweight contest.

Adams has already set her sights on winning a World title since joining the professional ranks with promoter Frank Warren at the start of the year. A win against Vlajk on September 16th will take her a step closer to becoming Britain’s first ever globally recognised female professional World Champion.

Vlajk, 37, has won 11 of her 17 contests, stopping two opponents, since turning professional in 2013. The Debrecen resident has banked over 114 rounds, compared to Adams’ 7.

“Every boxer dreams of fighting in Las Vegas one day and to be doing this as part of the biggest boxing match of the year is going to be incredible,” said Adams. “It’s great to be fighting 3 minute rounds again as this made a big difference in Leeds and I’m hoping for a similar outcome this time. My training has been going really well with Virgil Hunter and the team at SNAC. I can’t wait to get in the ring on 16th.

Frank Warren said: “This is without doubt THE boxing event of 2017, and I am delighted that Nicola has the chance to showcase her skills on such a huge bill. Canelo v Golovkin is among the very best fights to be made in the last decade and for Nicola to be part of it is brilliant for her and women’s boxing. I have every confidence that Nicola will become a World Champion in the professional ranks.”

Upbeat GGG CV /  Timeline Gennady Golovkin

WBC middleweight champion, Gennady Golovkin  has built a mighty impressive undefeated career record of  37 victories and 33 KO´s, and now it’s time to put it all to the test against Santos Saul Alvarez Barragan, better known as “Canelo”  (49-1-1) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on September 16th.

“GGG” began his  eye catching pro career on May 6, 2006 and from that moment his fists proved busy,  winning one victory after another, to become the  World Boxing Council champion, first as interim monarch and later as The absolute king of 160 pound.

Gennady GGG  Golovkin is readying and steadying for  the singular most important commitment of his career, in defending his crown against Saul “Canelo”Alvarez, in a brilliantly match clash that the public has been clamouring for, since “Canelo” became the king of the middleweights after defeating Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto.

“I want to win this fight because this triumph will  propel  me into history . I want to be remembered in the same breath as:  Sugar Ray Leonard.   I recall and aclaim many great middleweight champions like Carlos Monzon, Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Bernard Hopkins. There are now new stories, new times  and a new era for us. There are many great new stories to be told of this tremendous division, via action. ”
