Indian boxing star Manipur pride M C Mary Kom has decided to skip the Asian Championships is part of a larger plan to develop her chances of Olympic qualification.
“This year is very important for me. Qualifying for the Tokyo Olympics is my main aim. Without competing in any competition I cannot qualify for the Olympics. It would be difficult. I have to know all the opponents in my category (51kg) and judge how strong they are compared to me,” Mary Kom said.
