MC Mary Kom, Sonia Chahal to fight for Gold medals today

Sonia secured a silver to end India's campaign at World Championships on a high

The atmosphere at the KD Jadhav Hall was electrifying and so was seasoned M.C Mary Kom's performance in the final of the Aiba Women's World Boxing Championship here on Saturday. The 35-year-old Manipuri boxer is a mother of three now. It was only towards the end of first round that the Ukrainian managed to connect a straight punch against Mary Kom. No other woman boxer has won more than five gold medals.

"A stellar achievement for #MaryKom, becoming the first woman boxer to win six world championship Gold".

But the latest, and perhaps her most stunning, was won by beating Ukraine's Hanna Okhota in the final of 48kg weight category in New Delhi. The enormous victory fetched the Manipur-born woman a sixth World Championship title. Mary will be relentless in her pursuit of that one elusive dream: an Olympic gold medal. Her first four gold medals had come in pinweight category.

Priyanka Chopra, who essayed the role of Mary Kom in her biopic, also wished the star on her official Twitter handle writing, "Wow!"

Mary Kom is also the brand ambassador of this IIFA Women's World Championship Competition.

After three rounds of boxing, Kom was declared the champion by a 5-0 unanimous decision.

The Delhi crowd foresaw the result a little into the third round as Mary Kom had completely taken over the context by then. Amidst the exchange of blows, Hanna displayed some gamesmanship and invited the Indian to land more shots. She thanked the coaches who taught her throughout and the current Indian support staff. Hailing from Bhiwani district in Haryana, Sonia began her career in 2011 when she was 14 and rose through the ranks by competing at the school and sub-junior levels.

"I have learnt a lot from this tournament and I will try to improve my strength". Returning in 2016, with an eye on the Olympic Games later that year, she left the 48kg class spot to Sarjubala Devi and lost to Germany's Azize Nimani in the second round in the 51kg class in Astana, Kazakhstan. I am still suffering.
