Forging towards a gold medal, India's boxing superstar and the born fighter MC Mary Kom has defeated Sri Lanka's Abusha Dilruksh and has entered the final of the women's 48-kg category at Commonwealth Games 2018, today.
Mary Kom did not just win the game on the edge, she rather registered a 5:0 win against the veteran Sri Lankan fighter. The 39-year-old fighter Anusha played well against the five-time world champion but fell short in the end. Both boxers played cautiously in the first round, but Mary managed to land several punches.
