Mary Kom enters quarters in World Boxing Championships

Five-time champion MC Mary Kom punched her way into the 48kg quarterfinals while another veteran Sarita Devi made an early exit after losing a controversial 60kg bout in the AIBA Women’s World Championships here on Sunday.

Chasing a historic sixth gold and first medal since 2010, the 35-year-old Mary Kom registered a convincing 5-0 win over Aigerim Kessenayeva of Kazakhstan in her opening bout of the tournament.

The 36-year-old Sarita, who won a gold in the 2006 edition when it was also held in the Capital city, lost to 2016 World Championships silver medallist Kellie Harrington of Ireland in a split 3-2 verdict.
