A woman boxer has proved she is a real knock out by making it to the final of a top modelling competition.

Mother-of-two Amy Williams of Port Talbot, South Wales is swapping the boxing ring for the catwalk as she takes on dozens of other young beauties in the final of Top Model UK 2013.

But first she has to get through a big boxing bout - and she's hoping she doesn't take any blows to the face.

"It is less make-up and smiles - more sweat and pain. I'll have to tap my opponent on the head a few times to score some points. Then I'll just run around the ring," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

"I'm worried but I have to take it as it comes. Whatever happens, happens," she said.

Amy will step into the ring at the weekend for a novice championship bout for the Welsh Amateur Boxing Association, and she's hoping not to spoil her good looks ahead of her appearance in the final of Top Model UK 2013 at the Hilton Metropole in London in April.

"I don't see any conflict between modelling and getting into the ring. I really didn't feel confident when I went for auditions because it's such a big competition but they called me back," she said.

Amy is a finalist in the over 25 category of the competition which has been running for seven years.

But Amy, who has been training for six years has had five fights, said she has no intention of giving up the boxing even if she wins the competition. (ANI)
