Mary Kom wins record-breaking sixth gold medal at World Boxing Championships

This is the sixth world championship title of Mary Kom, & her eighth medal at the World Championship. She has now won six of India's total tally of nine golds at the Worlds. Mary won the final with 30-27, 29-28, 29-28 30-27, 30-27 scoreline.

"They have been supporting me many years". In my weight category, there are a lot of experienced players. "Because of your love and support, I am able to qualify".

The 25-year-old (in blue in top photo), who has won several German champion's titles, dominated the fight throughout, with Sonia, 21, unable to claim any home advantage. "I am still suffering from that", she said.

The feisty Manipuri now has an incredible six gold and one silver in the World Championships.

"Thank you for your love and support. Only what I can achieve (for) you - that is the gold medal for our country". "I am a little bit emotional". She is the only boxer from that edition who is still active. It was only towards the end of first round that the Ukrainian managed to connect a straight punch against Mary Kom. The Indian straightaway went into the ring and had her small prayer in the blue corner.

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.

Terming the 35-year-old boxer a "living legend", Sonowal wrote: "Heartiest congratulations to ace boxer @MangteC for winning the @AIBA_Boxing World Championships for a record 6th time".

"I will try my best in the final". My opponent was better on the day. The boxer won a gold medal at the World Championship for the sixth time.

"I will analyse my weaknesses and work hard for the 2020 Olympics".
