“SOMETIMES I HAVE to make people stop talking!” Mary laughs and says, though it is a point she often makes without laughter. “When I started, they say boxing is not for girls. After I get married, they say I cannot win after marriage. After I have baby, they say I cannot win after baby. So I want to prove, I want to show that I can make history for India.”
Mary Kom, five times world boxing champion from Manipur, India.
