New Delhi: Mary Kom showed why she is the legend in boxing as she defeated Ukraine’s Hanna Okhota 5-0 to clinch the Women’s World Boxing Championship in New Delhi on Saturday and secure an unprecedented sixth gold medal, making her the most successful athlete in women’s boxing in history. The 35-year-old boxer from Manipur had secured the gold medal the last time it was held in New Delhi in 2006 and she shattered history to become the all-time leading gold medal winner in the World Boxing Championship. With this win, Mary Kom became the only female boxer in history to win six gold medals in the World Boxing Championship. When one looks at both men and women’s boxing, Mary Kom has drawn level with Cuban boxer Felix Savon.Read More | MC Mary Kom secures historic sixth gold medal in world boxing Congratulations Mary Kom for winning a record sixth world title.
