Boxing News: Mary Kom enters quarterfinals at World Boxing Championships

Six-time champion M C Mary Kom (51kg) advanced to the quarterfinals of the World Women's Boxing Championships after a hard-fought victory in the last-16 stage. Mary Kom triumphed 5-0 against Thailand's Jutamas Jitpong, a spunky boxer who kept the veteran on her toes with an aggressive approach but just did not connect enough. The third-seeded Indian, who got a bye in the opening round, spent the first three minutes getting a good measure of her opponent before taking control of the proceedings. Mary Kom, chasing her first world medal in the 51kg division, picked up pace in the second round and was especially sharp with her counter-attacks.
