New Delhi, April 14: India's most decorated boxer MC Mary Kom defeated Northern Ireland's Kristina O'Hara 5-0 to win the coveted gold in the 45-48kg category at the ongoing Commonwealth Games.
She beat Northern Ireland's Kristina O'Hara 5-0 via unanimous decision to claim the yellow metal. The five-time world champion won 30-27, 30-27, 29-28, 30-27, 20-27 to land the verdict in her favor.
The 22-year-old O'Hara, who works as a carer at a nursing home when she is not trading punches in the ring, lacked the finesse to counter the experienced Indian and failed to take advantage of her longer reach.
Mary Kom struck her at will, her right hooks being especially telling.
By the second round, Mary Kom seemed to be thoroughly enjoying herself in the ring against her timid rival.
