Great Britain head coach Rob McCracken has backed Nicola Adams to continue her history-making progress all the way to Olympic gold as she gears up for today's flyweight semi-final against Mary Kom.
Adams guaranteed Britain's first Olympic women's boxing medal with a superb 16-7 win over Stoyka Petrova of Bulgaria but the Leeds fighter now faces a major battle against the five-time world champion from India.
McCracken said: "It is a big, big fight. Mary Kom is a tremendous boxer and it is going to be a difficult bout. But Nicola is bigger than her and if she performs like she did in her last bout, then she will do it."
