Mary Kom reaches World Boxing Championships final for 7th time

Indian Boxer Mary Kom on Thursday defeated North Korea’s Kim Hyang-Mi in the semi-finals of the 48-kg event to reach the final of the AIBA World Women’s Boxing Championships for the seventh time. Kom will take on Ukraine’s Hanna Okhota in the final on Saturday. The 35-year-old has previously won five gold medals and one silver medal in the tournament.

Mary Kom entered the event with a remarkable tally of five gold medals and a silver to her credit. She last won a world championship medal in 2010 — a 48kg category gold.

She was tied with Irish legend Katie Taylor on the number of medals won before this edition.

But with Tuesday’s win, the Manipuri became the most successful boxer in the marquee tournament. Taylor now plies her trade in the professional circuit.
