Olympic champion Nicola Adams has been left out of the GB Boxing team for the European Women’s Boxing Championships as she considers turning professional.

The 34-year-old, along with fellow Olympian Savannah Marshall, has taken a break from full-time training.

The flyweight told the BBC in October that a professional move would “definitely break boundaries”.

The 2014 World Championship silver medallists Lisa Whiteside and Sandy Ryan will compete at flyweight and lightweight respectively, with light-welterweight Chantelle Cameron and middleweight Natasha Gale completing the squad.

“It is an opportunity for me to really establish myself as the number one lightweight in the GB squad,” Ryan said.
