Maria Edwards is not your average teenage girl, not only is she a talented football player, so much so that she has recently been signed up by Manchester City, after a successful spell at Manchester United where she finished top goal scorer for two seasons.
But Maria is also a boxing champion, recently winning the National championships and representing England.
She is tipped to go to the very top in what ever sport she chooses, she chooses both!
In this video we speak to Maria and here coach Thomas McDonagh, a former professional champion boxer himself, at the Collyhurst and Moston Boxing Club in Manchester. Maria says one day she may have to choose between the two sports she loves, but for now she is excelling in both and as a boxer Thomas rates her highly and predicts a very bright future.
