4 0

Both boxers started the first round looking to attack and get an early lead. Mary Kom landed a number of blows but Kim didn’t back down and got a few punches of her own before the round ended.

The second and third round was less intense, as Mary Kom took her time before picking her moment to strike. Showcasing her defensive capability, she fended off her challenger whilst also landing a few punches when the opportunity arose.

Her game plan worked and she won the final by a unanimous decision.

Despite not qualifying for the 2016 Rio Olympics, this tournament proves there is still plenty left in the tank of ‘Magnificent Mary’ as she added yet another feather in her already illustrious cap.

Many thought the celebrated Indian boxer was done with the ring after failing to make it to the 2016 Rio Olympics. However, her run to the final of the Asian Women’s Boxing Championships has shown that she is still the gold standard of women’s boxing in India.

Before today, Mary Kom’s last medal came in the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, where she became the first Indian woman boxer to win gold in the Women’s Flyweight (51 kg) category.

This is Mary Kom’s sixth medal in the Asian Women’s Boxing Championships and fifth gold medal, having won four gold medals and one silver medal in previous editions of the tournament.
