Prediction,

Good to see Nicola Adams in action!

Adams is very good, she made a name for herself in the Olympics, she won Gold in 2012, she won Gold in 2016, she is a special fighter as far as amateur boxing goes, that is for sure.
Women's boxing is not as competitive as men's boxing, so in women's boxing, you can afford to compromise yourself as a fighter more so, I would assume, but even if so, although I would love to be wrong, I just don't think Adams is going to have a great pro career at the highest level, she is only 3-0, she may have looked great so far, if any boxer is going to start well, it is a two-time Olympic Gold medalist, but she is 35, that is very old for a fighter her size, to say the least, she does not have time on her side.

This could be a step up in class for Adams, I don't think it is a new test, she has faced a two-time world title challenger, that was her last opponent, but now she is facing a three-time world title challenger, so if she wins this, it could be her best win so far, it certainly isn't a step down, and hopefully, if she wins this, wins it well, she will step up in her next fight.

Valle Frias is good, her record doesn't suggest she is great (13-11), only just about a winning record, but in terms of the level she has competed at, she has been in 3 world title fights, she lost them all, and all 3 were at different weights, one at 108, another at 112, and another, at 118. Frias has been stopped only once, and that was in her latest fight (she was stopped in 6, against the WBA 108lb champion), so stopping her is an achievement, but she may be less durable now, having so many losses, and being 34, then again, she may be much better suited to 115 than 108. Frias has stopped 4, so probably not a big puncher, but capable of hurting her opponent, she has been able win two South American titles, so if she comes prepared, her much higher level of experience could give her more of a chance.

Interestingly, despite all Adams's experience, she has never been past 4 rounds, Valle Frias (though being the underdog), has been 10 rounds, 5 times, so she has plenty of long distance experience, she is more than used to boxing past 4 rounds, and though she has had a gruelling career, she is still slightly younger than Nicola Adams, so there is that. If Adams takes her out early, she makes a statement, but if she puts a lot into the early rounds, but can't stop her, then her stamina will be tested, I think it is impossible to be a 35 year old super flyweight, going past 4 for the first time, being taken past 6, and not struggle at least to some extent. I think Adams has great fitness and dedication, I think she will also be conservative early, if she does get taken into the late rounds, that may be what she needs. I think Admas can make the difference in long distance experience matter less, if she can make the first few rounds more toll taking for Frias than they are for her.

I think Adams is the fresher, higher calibre fighter, the more dangerous, and I think she will win big. I see Adams not putting a lot into the first 3 rounds or so, I think she will win the rounds based on fundamentals, work rate, and speed. I think both will tire after 6 rounds, Adams, with the unfamiliarity of fighting past 4, and Frias, less overall athletic, and having taken more shots. I think whether or not Adams stops Frias depends on Frias more than her, but I definitely think this will go past 6, and Adams will win emphatically.

If Admas makes a statement, it would be good to see her in a world title eliminator next, she shouldn't be rushed, but she has no time to waste.

I was seething mad at that useless, pathetic time keeper!
Frias had done so well to get through 2 minutes, and then she had to suffer further, unnecessarily, because of the incompetence of an idiot who was in charge of keeping time of the rounds.

Brilliant performance from Nicola Adams, only 2 minutes, but whilst she was in there, she was so nimble, so fast, her variety was great.
