Adams one of three GB gold medallists at EU Championships

Olympic champion Nicola Adams admitted she could have hardly asked for more after she comfortably retained her flyweight title at the European Union Championships in Hungary.

Adams, who won the Olympic flyweight crown at London 2012 last summer, brushed Stoyka Petrova of Bulgaria aside as Britain claimed three gold medals in Keszthely.

Reigning world champion Savannah Marshall banished the heartache of London 2012, where she lost her first fight, by securing a points decision over Nouchka Fontjin in the middleweight final.

And Lisa Whiteside, the only one of the three gold medallists not to go to London 2012, was a comfortable winner over Alice Sramkova of the Czech Republic in the bantamweight final.

Adams was the only female British boxer to win gold at the London 2012 Olympics and, back in the ring, she insists she got everything she wanted from her trip to Hungary.
“It went better than I could ever have imagined. I came here wanting gold and I got what I wanted. My wish came true,” said Adams.

“Boxing is my passion, I have got such a big love for boxing and it is nice to take a gold medal home to England as well.”
