However, former champion Sarita Devi went down 3-2 to Ireland's Kellie Harrington in her 60 kg second round.

What turned the bout in favour of the Astana and European medal victor was the third round in which the Ireland pugilist was really charged and out-boxed her Indian veteran, who was returning to the Worlds after 12 years. She might be the biggest name here in Delhi, with giant posters featuring her image overlooking the ring at the Indira Gandhi stadium, and her fears would count for nothing as she eventually coasted to a points decision victory over Kazakhstan's Aigerim Kassenaeva.

Boxer Manisha Maun, Lovlina Borgohain and Bhagyabati Kachar also advanced to the quarterfinals in their respective weight categories. In the 69kg category, Sarita lost a close contest.

Mary Kom didn't have any of the bravado of a debutant like Manisha Moun, who was perfectly at ease before going on to beat reigning world champion Dina Zhalaman. Three out of five judges gave 29-28 in favour of the Irish boxer.

Talking after the bout, Mary said: "Feeling good, the pressure is off".

"I have been boxing at the national level for eight years now so there was not too much stress about this bout". Mary Kom is now tied with Katie Taylor of Ireland on five gold in the World Championships. "I always enjoyed boxing, it has been my life whether I train or compete in tournaments", said the mother of three children.

"I thought I got unlucky". Getting full points against the gold medal victor at Jeju in 2014 was as credible as it can get for the Indian who did leave a chance to throw punches at her rival right from the word go.

The veteran Indian, who also competed in the inaugural World Championships in 2001, expressed surprise when the Irishwoman was declared the victor. So I am very happy with the win because a lot of preparation went into the this. But what do I do, I was banned for one year after the 2014 Asian Games controversy. On her Chinese opponents, Mary said: "She is a new entrant and I will have to see how to handle her".

The 21-year-old, who began her 54 kg bout well, punched way above her weight and was in complete control throughout against the 36-year-old, who is a two-time World bronze medallist.

When Dina tried to up the ante, Manisha's evasive techniques and counter-attacks worked to fetch her a 5-0 win. "My opponent was a southpaw and her legs got entangled in between mine and I slipped and fell".

The 20-year-old Manisha won a 5-0 unanimous verdict against her more experienced rival in a pre-quarterfinal bout in her maiden World Championships.

In the quarterfinals, Manisha faces top seed and 2016 World Championships silver medallist Stoyka Petrova of Bulgaria.

"I do not enter the ring seeing the reputation of my opponent. I did well in the first two rounds but in the third it was more or less even". It was a physical and aggressive fight and both the boxers fell on the floor on more than one occasion. Mary will take on Wu Yu of China in the quarterfinals on Tuesday.

The veteran Sarita's loss was the first for hosts India in these Championships, with the women winning all the previous nine bouts before her. She will face Colombia's Jessica Paola Caicedo Sinisterra in the quarterfinals.
