Boxing

How did you get into Boxing?

Her love for boxing came about when her mother had to take her and her brother to the gym with her because their babysitter had cancelled. There was a boxing activity on for kids at the time and Adams joined in. Her boxing career came about as a mistake!

According to Adams’s mother she had always been brave. When she was four years old her parents were arguing and she jumped in front of her mother and tried to protect her with a plastic sword. She was begging her mother to leave her father by the age of eight and when she was eleven she did. Her boxing character came through at times like this, when she tried to fight back but she was just too small.
