The last time she won the top prize in the showpiece was in 2010, in Bridgetown, Barbados. Mary won the final with 30-27, 29-28, 29-28 30-27, 30-27 scoreline.
Boxing Federation of India (BFI) president Ajay Singh also said that the world body has given full marks to the organisation and described it as the best championships ever in recent years.

With gold No. 6, the current Member of Parliament in the Rajya Sabha has set her sight on the 2020 Tokyo Olympics gold. Four years ago I was not able to qualify.

Okhota is the junior European champion and a former silver medallist at the Youth World Championships.

The crowd went berserk and when the result was announced, the noise reached its crescendo, and Mary Kom bowed to acknowledge. The class and experience was on full display as she outboxed her Ukrainian rival with five judges giving all three rounds to the Indian. "Now, I am smarter and try to find out the game of my opponent and then think out mine in the ring itself". My opponent was better on the day.
