Nicola Adams, 37, competed in boxing from 2017 to 2019. She retired with an undefeated record and held the WBO female flyweight title in 2019. The boxer is also competing on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing season but how tall is she?
Nicola was the first female boxer to win an Olympic title and the first to win two gold medals at the games.
She retired in late 2019 after she said that her age would put her at risk of serious injury if she continued.
She announced in an open letter: “I’ve been advised that any further impact to my eye would most likely lead to irreparable damage and permanent vision loss.”
Typically, boxers are known to be tall as they can avoid bad situations more easily.
A tall boxer with good footwork can be a very tough opponent, especially if they have a speed advantage too.
For example, Tyson Fury is 6ft 7inches whilst Anthony Joshua is 6ft 4inches.
However Nicola Adams is only 5ft 3inches.
She also weighs 51kg, which is slightly under the required weight for a female boxer.

She and Kayta Jones are also Strictly Come Dancing’s first ever same sex couple.
The popular dance show, which kicks off tonight, will see celebrities and their dance partners battling to win the series.
