In her first competition since London 2012, Flyweight Adams (pictured) overcame Bulgaria’s Stoyka Petrova to retain her EU title. Afterwards Nicola tweeted her delight, “I did it! #EuropeanUnionChampion 4 a 2nd time. I’m binging home the #gold.”

And there was also British success for bantamweight Whiteside who beat Czech Alice Sramkova, and middleweight Marshall defeated Dutch Nouchka Mirielle Fountin to also both claim gold.
