Nicola Adams' fight canceled at last minute over opponent's blood test”

Nicola Adams was not told that her debut U.S. fight against Alexandra Vlajk was off until she had reached the dressing rooms at the T-Mobile Arena on Saturday night.

There was a problem with the pre-fight test meaning Vlajk failed her medical, forcing the Hungarian to pull out of her scheduled bout in Las Vegas.

Adams became the first female boxer to win Olympic gold when she overcame China's Ren Cancan in the flyweight final in front of a home crowd at London 2012.

She tweeted: "I'm devastated that I'm not boxing tonight, due to a problem with my opponent, thank you everyone for your support and kind messages".

But organisers had no choice but to call off Adams' third professional bout.

It would have been her debut stateside but the 34-year-old will now have to bide her time for another opportunity.

The Briton had earlier spoken of the excitement of being in the boxing capital of the US.

Vlajk, 37, has won 11 of her 17 contests and has stopped two opponents since turning professional in 2013. We are definitely changing the game for the better'.
