Women's boxing: Ornella Wahner strikes historic gold for Germany

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

India's MC Mary Kom won a historic sixth gold in the World Championships on Saturday, the mother-of-three doing, without breaking a sweat, what no other woman boxer has done or known before.

M.C. Mary Kom celebrates after defeating Ukraine's Hanna Okhota in the 48kg category at the World Boxing Championship in New Delhi on November 24, 2018. Congratulations on winning the 6th World Boxing Championship title, Mary Kom. Earlier in the year, she defeated Northern Ireland's Kristina O'Hara 5-0 to become the first the first Indian female boxer to win gold at the Commonwealth Games. She has previously won world championship gold medals in 2002, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010. With the comprehensive victory over her opponent on Saturday, the Manipur-born boxer surpassed the Irish punch-machine and now sits as the joint most successful boxer (Men and Women) in the history of World Championships, tied with Cuban legend Felix Savon.

The last time she won the top prize in the showpiece was in 2010, in Bridgetown, Barbados.

The Indian could not hold back her tears as she thanked the fans for their whole-hearted support. "Only what I can achieve (for) you - that is the gold medal for our country". "But I am still dreaming about winning the gold in 2020 Olympics". "I was always charging and I would be totally exhausted and could not even raise my hand after the fight", she said after winning a record sixth gold in the showpiece.

For most part of the bout, Mary showed why she has survived in the sport. There is no (48kg) weight category in the Olympic Games. She is also a very shrewd boxer.

In a hard-fought duel between two southpaws, Mary showcased her attractive assortment of right jabs and well-rehearsed combinations to seize initiative.
