  • Mary Kom settled for a bronze after going down 1-4 to second seed Cakiroglu in the 51kg division

Boxer Mary Kom bowed out of World Championships 2019 after losing her 51kg semifinal bout against Turkey's European Champion Busenaz Cakiroglu via a split verdict 1:4 at Ulan-Ude, in Russian Federation, on Saturday.

Both the boxers were reluctant to make the first move in the opening round. Besides the six gold medals at the World Championships, Mary Kom's incredible career is also studded with an Olympic bronze medal (2012), five Asian titles, gold medals at the Asian Games and the Commonwealth Games, besides numerous other worldwide top finishes. After the bout, India protested the decision, and appealed to take another look at the bout. However, the verdict in Mary Kom's match read 4:1 and hence the yellow card was not accepted by the technical committee.

Mary Kom was left fuming by the decision to award the win to her opponent and immediately took to Twitter to question it. Tagging Union Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju and Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi, Mary Kom wrote: "How and why".

The London Olympic bronze medallist, who has six gold medals from this tournament, on Thursday created history when she broke a tie with Cuban men's legend Felix Savon to become the only boxer across male and female categories to amass eight World Championships medals.
