• Olympic champion Adams out of Worlds


    LONDON: Olympic champion Nicola Adams has withdrawn from the Women’s World Boxing Championships in South Korea in November due to injury, it was announced on Friday (Saturday in Manila). Adams, who recently added Commonwealth gold to her London 2012 title, is set to have surgery on a shoulder injury and is expected to be out of action for up to six months. It means the British boxer has still to claim the one major title that has evaded her grasp following three consecutive world silver medals in 2008, 2010 and 2012.
