Double Olympic champion Nicola Adams clung on to her WBO flyweight world title in a gruelling 10-round war with Mexican Maria Salinas that ended in a draw.

Adams, from Leeds, flew into an early lead but her 11-month absence from the ring was clear to see as she flagged in the back-half of the fight and had to cling on to her belt.

After the match Adams said it wasn't her best performance - and that she'd be happy to have a rematch.
