Mary Kom defends World Championship crown: Rediff Sports

Indian woman boxer M C Mary Kom on Saturday claimed a historic fifth successive World Championship title, beating Steluta Duta of Romania 16-6 in the final in Bridgetown.

Mary Kom, who competed in the 48kg category, had defeated Alice Kate Aparri of the Philippines 8-1 in the semi-finals to assure herself of at least a silver in the sixth edition of the competition.

The former Khel Ratna awardee from Manipur thus remains the only boxer who has won a medal in each edition of World Championship.

Duta had defeated Kazakhstan's Nazgul Boranbayeva 10-5 in the semi-final
Magnificent Mary
