Asian Games: Mary Kom enters women’s flyweight boxing finals

Legendary Indian boxer M.C. Mary Kom entered the final of the women’s flyweight category by defeating her Vietnamese rival Le Thi Bang in a semi-final bout at the Asian Games on Tuesday.

She is assured of at least a silver medal.

The 31-year-old Indian outclassed her opponent with speed and technique in the first three rounds, unleashing multiple combination punches. Le fought back in the fourth, but Mary Kom had already sealed the duel by then.

A five-time world champion, Mary Kom won a historic bronze for India in the 2012 London Olympics.

Meanwhile, India’s L. Sarita Devi’s protest after her controversial loss to Jina Park of South Korea in a lightweight semi-final contest was rejected by the International Boxing Association’s technical committee.
