Mary Kom has fair chance to win medal in London games: MishraJamshedpur: Former world champion woman boxer Aruna Mishra on Friday said five-time world champion M C Mary Kom, who qualified for the London Olympics, has a fair chance of winning a medal for the country.

Mishra, who had won gold in the World Championship in Norway in 2004 and also in the 10th and 11th Senior National Championships, said Mary Kom`s performance would, however, depend a lot on the main draw of the event.

Mishra, who was Mary Kom’s team mate in the Indian Police team for over seven years, said she had been performing consistently in the International arena and had been in good nick.


She said Mary Kom has worked hard for the London Olympics.

"...She is technically sound, has perfect footwork and power in her punches," Mishra felt.

The secretary of the Jharkhand Boxing Association, Dinesh Upadhyay, also held the same view.


"We are all expecting a medal winning performance from five-time world champion Mary Kom," Upadhyay said.

Asked about the prospect of the men boxers from the country in the London Olympics, Upadhyay said he was confident of a good show from them as well.

"We have good advantage in lower and middle weight category events," he said.
