Gold Coast: India’s M C Mary Kom beat Kristina O’Hara of Northern Ireland to win the 48 kg women’s boxing gold medal at the Commonwealth Games on Saturday.
The Five-time World champion and Olympic bronze-medallist, competing in the Games for the first time, proved too good for the 22-year-old and won by a unanimous 5-0 decision. This is her first Commonwealth Games medal and India 18th gold at the ongoing Games.
The 35-year-old Mary Kom had won the Asian Championships gold five months ago, before taking the top honours at the India Open in January.
She also won a silver medal at the Strandja Memorial Tournament in Bulgaria before arriving in Gold Coast.
