Mary Kom wins her fifth gold medal in the Asian Boxing Championship Kom wins her fifth gold medal in the Asian Boxing Championship

Mary Kom won the gold medal in the Asian Boxing Championships, defeating DPR Korea’s Kim Hyang Mi in the final bout 5-0 by unanimous judges decision .

This was the 34-year-old’s fifth final appearance in six Asian Championship editions.

The five-time World Champion was put under a fair bit of pressure from her opponent in the first round. However, the Indian quickly worked her way around it and in a terrific display of counter-punching put her opponent on the back foot.

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.

Having been away from the boxing ring for a long period, this was the first time in five years that Mary Kom returned to her favorite 48-kg category and emerged victorious . It was Mary’s first international gold medal since the 2014 Asian Games and her first medal in more than a year.

In the semifinal on Tuesday, Mary Kom had started the day brightly for India, defeating Japan’s Tsubasa Komura in a unanimous 5-0 verdict to make the final for the fifth time in her six appearances at the event.

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.

India’s Sonia Lather (57kg) will also feature in a finals bout later in the day.
