NICOLA ADAMS has been declared WBO flyweight champion without having to fight for the title.

The double Olympic champion has been upgraded from the interim belt after holder Arely Mucino was ruled out with a long-term injury.

Ironically Adams had been forced to withdraw from a challenge to Mucino, scheduled for the Royal Albert Hall in March, due to an injury of her own.
