         Tags: Ready for Asian Boxing Championship: Mary Kom
 

NEW DELHI: Indian star boxer and five-time world champion MC Mary Kom on Friday said that she is working really hard for the upcoming South Asian Women's Boxing Championship in Vietnam and is all set for the challenge ahead.

Mary was back in her preferred 48kg category as she overcame the challenge from younger competitors to make it to the Indian team for the marquee continental event, which is to be held from November 2 to November 11 in the Ho Chi Minh City.

After undergoing three days of gruelling trials, the veteran duo Mary Kom and L Sarita Devi (64kg) made the cut, despite trying their luck in different weight categories.

Mary, who had climbed up a division to 51 kg back in 2010, is all set to make her sixth Asian Championships appearance.

Talking about her preparation, Marry said, "I am ready for the Asian Championship and working very hard for this. My weight category has changed so I am trying to make myself comfortable."

"I will see how this competition will go for me and also I have to see weight category for 2020 Olympics because this weight category is not in Olympics," she added.

Speaking about Pakistan's participation in the tournament, Mary insisted that sports bring peace, adding that in ring we fight to win, not as any enemy.

The Rajya Sabha MP fought six bouts during the trials and won all despite facing younger rivals in the likes of World Championships silver-medallist Sarjubala Devi among others.
