Great Britain's Nicola Adams has made history again after winning the first gold medal in boxing at the inaugural European Games in Baku.

Adams became the first woman to win gold in boxing at London 2012 and has added another accolade to her trophy room, beating Poland's Sandra Drabik on a majority points decision in the 51kg final.

Leeds-born Adams largely controlled the contest and went into the fourth and final round leading on points. Polish flyweight Drabik momentarily rocked the Brit with a firm right hand but could not could not capitalise. Composing herself, the 27-year-old Brit saw out the contest to seal a sixth career medal.

Adams was awarded a 39-37 win on two of the judges' cards, with the other tying the contest at 38-38.

"She's a good opponent and I knew it would be quite tough, but I thought I would have enough to get me through it," Adams told BBC Sport.

"I'm bringing back a little piece of history for Great Britain and now it's on to the qualifiers for Rio."
