The Indian woman boxer Mary Kom has become an inspiration for all the women out there. In a country like India where most of the women are not allowed to even dream to become a sportsperson, Mary Kom has won six world championship titles.
Kom has become world’s number one woman boxer by the International Boxing Association (AIBA) in the light fly (45-48kg) category. The 35-year-old Kom tops up her weight division with 1700 points. Ukraine’s 22-year-old boxer Hanna Okhota has ranked second, with 1100 points.
