India’s MC Markom has puched her way to the Gold Medal of the women’s Flyweight (48-52Kg) category as she defeated Kazakhstan’s Zhaina Shekerbekova in the finals. The five time World Champion and the Olympic Bronze Medalist MC Marykom showed her young Kazak opponent what experiance can bring to a boxer as she kept on attacking and won the last three rounds quite easily. This is MC Marykom’s first Gold Medal in the Asian Games.

The left and right combination worked well for the 31-year-old MC Mary Kom as she defetaed Zhaina Shekerbekova 3-1. Mary Kom lost the first round, came back strongly to notch up the second round before sealing the third round. She loosened herself in the fourth round and changed her tactics as she simply kept on defending and wasted the time so that her opponent cant puch her out in the final round. 

This will be the major victory for MC Marykom since giving birth to her third son “Prince” last year. She won a Bronze medal in the same category during the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games. This medal is India’s seventh Gold in the 2014 Incheon Asian Games and the first medal in Boxing for India.
