NICOLA ADAMS believes working alongside some of the world’s best will stand her in good stead when she makes her professional debut in Manchester on Saturday.

The 34-year-old has been training in the same San Francisco gym as the likes of pound-for-pound star Andre Ward and Amir Khan ahead of her clash with Argentina’s Virginia Carcamo.

New trainer Virgil Hunter steered Ward from Olympic gold in 2004 to the top of the professional ranks and Adams believes he is capable of doing the same for her.
