Nicola Adams wax figure with boxing gloves at Madame Tussauds Blackpool

Nicola Adams’s knockout wax figure was today unveiled by Madame Tussauds Blackpool.

The town roared as The Lioness’s wax double arrived in the resort and seen playfully throwing a punch at the iconic Blackpool Tower.

Every last feature of Nicola’s signature look has been accurately detailed, down to the lion tattoo which spans the back of her neck.

Officially Great Britain’s most successful female boxer, Adams is the first woman to win an Olympic boxing title, and the first British boxer to successfully defend their Olympic title for 92 years.

The gold medallist is also the only female boxer in the history of the sport to have won every major title available to her; Olympic, World, European, and Commonwealth.

In recognition of her services to boxing and unprecedented achievement, Nicola was appointed an Order of the British Empire in 2016.
