Mary Kom eyes historic sixth gold

New Delhi -India´s Mary Kom on Saturday became the most successful female boxer in world championships history after clinching her sixth gold medal in New Delhi.

World-class Indian pugilist MC Mary Kom and rookie Sonia Chahal will clash for Gold medals at the Women's World Boxing Championships in the national capital New Delhi this evening.

The boxer was overwhelmed after the win and broke down after coming out of the ring. "The Almighty has blessed her, our community, the country", said Lakhomang. "They have been supporting me for last many years", Mary said after winning the final bout.

However, the Indian champion came back strongly and displayed her best effort of the day, a powerful hook in the second that shattered Okhota's gameplan to lower her guard and lure the Indian to attack. Because of your love and support, I feel I will be able to qualify for 2020 Tokyo Olympics. I know it will be a bit hard for me to win a gold in Tokyo (2020 Games) as I will have to fight in the 51kg.

There are ways to protect the iPad Pro like adding a protective cover and tempered glass, but it may not help a lot. But not for this reader: "Apple wants you to use the Apple Pencil (not included, of course) as the mouse".

It is a good bet that this girl, stars in her eyes, was not even born when the Manipuri won her first World Championship medal back in 2001.

"I am still dreaming about winning the gold in 2020", she quipped. I can not thank enough to all those who have come here to cheer me and those who prayed for me. Then Mary managed to land some punches on her opponent. The crowd went berserk and when the result was announced, the noise reached its crescendo, and Mary Kom bowed to acknowledge.

It is a tribute to the 35-year-old's ability to keep the fire in her belly raging for so long - through marriage, child-birth and a bitter rivalry with Pinky Rani Jangra.

"I have learnt a lot from this tournament and I will try to improve my strength". Some of the her combinations caught Sonia off guard.
