My Hero with Katie Taylor and Lily Devlin

In the third of our My Hero films, young boxer Lily Devlin dreams of being a world champion, just like her hero Katie Taylor.  Katie is 5 x World Boxing Champion and 6 x European Champion and Olympic Gold Medallist.  Katie invites Lily to spend a couple of days with her and her coach at their base in Ireland.  Lily gets to meet, train and even spar with her hero!  

Lily's exceptional talent is quickly spotted by Katie and her coach.  Can their advice and passion for their sport give Lily the strength and determination she'll need to reach her goal?
