From 'No Skill' to Master Planner MC Mary Kom Looks Back at Incredible Domination After Winning Women's World Boxing Championships Gold

India's Sonia Chahal couldn't add a second gold to India's tally at the 10th Women's World Boxing Championships in New Delhi on Saturday but the 21-year-old ended her maiden world meet campaign with a memorable silver.

Talking about her record win, Mary told reporters, "I want to dedicate the medal to all the people behind my hard-work".

Mary had last won a gold at the World Championships eight years ago in in Bridgetown, Barbados.

A sportswoman beyond compare, Mary Kom received a deafening ovation from the jam-packed Indira Gandhi Stadium at New Delhi as she walked out for her historic contest.

The 35-year-old, who is a mother of three children, had previously won gold medals in 2002, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010 editions of the World Championships.

Sergei Naryshkin, the head of the SVR foreign intelligence agency, a GRU rival, praised Korobov as a "true comrade-in-arms". According to the American geopolitical intelligence firm Stratfor , however, Sergun died on New Year's Day in Lebanon.

Overwhelmed, Mary Kom broke down after coming out of the ring as she went around to greet the packed crowd and the assembled officials. Today, I am a little bit emotional, since I have been feeling there is no category in the Olympic Games. In my weight category, there are a lot of experienced players. Because of your love and support, I feel I will be able to qualify for 2020 Tokyo Olympics. "I am still suffering from that", she said.

India's Simranjit Kaur and Lovlina Borgohain settled for bronze medals after losing their respective semi-final bouts.

"Thank you so much for your love and support. I know it will be a bit hard for me to win a gold in Tokyo as I will have to fight in 51kg".

". Due to their reach, the taller boxers (who will be in 51kg) will have advantage". She is also a two-time medallist at the Asian Games, winning bronze at 2010 and gold in 2014. "I dedicate my gold to my nation". The wily Indian soon began to take control. Image sourceThe emphatic moment also marks Mary Kom as the most successful boxer in the history of the colossal event.

Living up to the reputation, Mary started the opening round aggressively and landed a couple of right jabs quite early into the round before taking full control with a right-two punch combination to Hanna. Savon had won six gold medals and a silver medal at the World Championships during his illustrious boxing career.
