NICOLA ADAMS insists her desire to continue making women’s boxing history will not stop until her name is shining down from the giant billboards above the Las Vegas Strip.

The double Olympic champion begins another bright new era for the sport in Manchester on Saturday night when she makes her professional debut against Argentina’s Virginia Carcamo.

It will be the highest profile women’s bout in Britain since Jane Couch won her high-profile legal fight for a professional boxing licence in 1998, but for 34-year-old Adams the goals do not end there.
