Mary Kom two bouts away from history

Mary Kom

Mary Kom entered the semi-final bout as an underdog due to the huge physicality and reach of Kim Hyang-Mi but the Indian ace showed quick feet movement and ducked several punches thrown at her by the North Korean boxer. The addition in the narrative can come from the sequence of events that played out on November 20, where Mary, 35-year-old, mother of three, written off as early as last year, embattled Mary, the superstar Mary secured herself a seventh AIBA World Championships medal with a victory over China's Yu Wu in the quarterfinals of the 48kg category.

With this win, she has kept her dream alive of winning a record sixth world championship gold medal.

Mary Kom had entered the event with a remarkable tally of five gold medals and a silver to her credit.

"I was inexperienced last time when I took on her".

Saudi Arabia's crown prince leaves on first foreign tour since Khashoggi murder
The prince, Saudia Arabia's de facto ruler, "hates it more than I do", Trump added about the killing. The killers of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi may have gotten more than they bargained for.

However, it was the end of road for young Lovlina Borgohain who lost to Chinese Taipei's Nien-Chin Chen in the 69kg category semi-final. Once I study the opponent in the first round I know how to tackle her.

The three young ladies, who grew up idolizing Mary Kom are now with her, fighting beside her, for their nation and what is fantastic is that Mary Kom, after all these years, is still around to fight beside them.

It was probably because of her earlier loss to Indian in the Asian Championship final in 2017 that the North Korean came out better prepared. At present, Mary and Katie Taylor of Ireland have both five titles each but the Indian will have the opportunity to be in a league of her own on Saturday.

"But once I got her game I thought out what to do and I had not much of a problem after that", she added.

Warriors star Steph Curry not injured after multi-car wreck
The Golden State Warriors say star Stephen Curry wasn't injured after two drivers hit his vehicle on an Oakland freeway. Officials said that Curry's vehicle, a Porsche, then made contact with the auto that had spun out in front of him.

"I have beaten her in Poland". I will read that bout and plan my strategy. Unfortunately, Lovlina received a warning from the referee in the third round for hitting at the back of the head of the opponent and one point was cut from all the five judges. "I will try my best inside the ring".

Debutant Lovlina's "ultimate goal is to win gold here".

"I had a strong opponent and I gave my all".

"I just can not believe that I have reached the final".

Amazon and Microsoft make it easier for Indians to make a call
Following its initial announcement in September, it looks like Skype calling is almost ready to roll out to Amazon Echo devices . When you link Skype and Alexa , you'll also get 100 free minutes of calls per month for two months.

The difference in experience showed between the two as Petrova controlled Maun's aggression with well timed counters, a lot of them in combinations that unsettled the Indian. "But anything can happen in a boxing bout", she had said after her first bout of the tournament.
