Team GB's Nicola Adams believes that the home crowd at London 2012 can help her become the first ever female Olympic boxing champion later today.

Team GB's Nicola Adams has called upon the British crowd to help her become the first ever female Olympic boxing champion this afternoon.

The Leeds-born 29-year-old beat India's Mary Kom 11-6 yesterday to set up a gold medal fight against Ren Cancan of China.

"I am going to do everything exactly the same as normal and treat it like a regular tournament. But hopefully the crowd will give me a boost and I can get that gold," said Adams.

"She beat me in the World Championships but I have beaten her once before earlier this year and I'm hoping I can do it again.

"I have prepared for this my whole life, I just have to go out there and do it now. Every cheer for me is a real great boost of energy and I'm going to take that into the final."

The fight is scheduled to begin at 4.30pm.
