Mary Kom is the New World champion
Mary Kom became the world champion by winning the Gold medal at World boxing championship.
Mary Kom – World champion emerged victorious beating Ukraine’s Hanna Okhota 5-0 in 48 Kg. A category in Women’s World Championship at the J D Jhadav Hall.
This is Mary’s historic 6th gold. She was adjudged the best boxer of the 10th World Women’s Boxing championship. The AIBA panel chose the Indian boxer Mary Kom as the best among the competitors. It was a much-deserved honour to the 35-year-old boxer.
Mary Kom entered the arena to the cheering reception by her fans. The Indoor Stadium was buzzing. Local favourite Mary Kom, who was in the blue corner, was making her way into the ring. The seasoned campaigner’s relatives and friends were there.
When the event started with both the boxers being a bit flat-footed, Mary threw a few good punches in the first round. As usual, she waited for her opponent to make the moves but came up with a few decisive ones herself.
It turned out to be a tight affair. A close contest as Ukraine’s Hanna kept herself busy. She tested the Indian boxer Mary Kom as the latter seemed more aggressive than she was in the first round. Both boxers hoping to make a mark.
The Indian pugilist resisted a lot of theatrics from her opponent and was content to keep herself away from the action.
By winning the title Mary Kom has now the joint-most successful boxer in the history of the world meet. And she has done no other woman has done.
It was Mary’s strength, resolution, determination and her attitude which made her reach the goal.
The Olympics bronze medalist belongs to the Kom tribe of Manipur. She is the first daughter of M.Tonoa Kom and M.Akham Kom of Kangathel village in churachandpur district of Manipur.
Mary Kom’s aggression is the mainstay of her game. And she has a never-say-die attitude a boxer should have. She fights till the last bell and one can only respect that.
