Want to Win a Seventh World Championship Title: MC Mary Kom
Having secured a record sixth World championship title, India's boxing legend MC Mary Kom has now set her eyes on a seventh world crown along with an elusive Olympic gold at the 2020 Tokyo Games.
Mary etched her name in history books by winning an unprecedented sixth gold in the 48kg category at the Women's World Championships in Delhi last week.
The Manipuri trailblazer, who won her sixth title after a gap of eight years, said despite several additional responsibilities -- including being a mother of three -- she continues to work toward achieving her dream of winning the world championship again.
The title in her kitty, the 35-year-old however is not done. At an event in New Delhi on Friday, she declared that a seventh world title was on the agenda, along with another big finish at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Mary, who fights in the 48kg category will have to bulk up for the 2020 Olympics qualifiers where she will fight in the 51kg division. The 48kg is not in the Olympics. Her bronze in the Olympics also came in 51kg in the 2012 Games.
The 36-year-old also dispelled all rumours of retiring any time soon.
"I am going to fight for another 1-2 years at least," she said.
