The British Olympic Champion is leaving the Games. Adams won’t be a part of the UK team during the next games to be held in Tokyo. Instead she plans to start her career in the professional boxing and she has already found a promoter.

“My hero was Muhammad Ali. I said after watching him I wanted to box at the Olympics and turn pro,” the boxer shared, “Together we can help take women’s boxing to new levels and I can’t wait to get to get in the ring in April and start working towards becoming a world champion.” She came out as bi a few years ago and claims to had been very nervous about it.But now she regrets about staying in closet for a long time and struggling about it for all that period. Coming out was not so terrifying and all the changes in her life it led to were only positive.
