Nicola Adams will face Argentina's Soledad del Valle Frias on the undercard of the IBF featherweight world title fight between Lee Selby and Josh Warrington at Elland Road on May 19.

Adams, an Olympic gold medal winner in 2012 and 2016, will be looking to extend her unbeaten 3-0 record since turning professional against the three-time world title contender.

"This is another step up for me on my journey to a professional world title," said Adams. "My camp has gone perfectly and I can't wait to fight at a football stadium for the first time in my career.

"The atmosphere is going to be incredible and I want to produce a performance that matches it. This is going to be a massive event for the city of Leeds and all of Yorkshire and I can't wait to be part of it."
