After the Legendary boxer MC Mary Kom twisted her knee at the Commonwealth Games (CWG) trials on a sultry June afternoon, many feared that her career would end on a surgeon’s table. But it seems that the ace athlete is in no mood to “retire”. She might be on the road to recovery and has made it clear that she will surely make a comeback.
“Why can’t I come back? I am Mary Kom,” she said.
“I don’t want to retire at all, because of the age limit I’ve been not able to play. I want to make a comeback, I have got that guts. So many people love and support me. Why I shouldn’t make a comeback, I will make a comeback,” star boxer Mary Kom told reporters on Friday.
“At least before retirement, I want to do something for the country again. According to the schedule, I will plan and think that which competition I should play. I want to compete in a major competition,” she added.
The six-time boxing world champion had undergone surgery for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury and is currently gearing up to take on the field as soon as she recovers fully.
Earlier this year, Mary Kom was ruled out of the Birmingham Commonwealth Games due to a knee injury.
Mary Kom, the London Olympics bronze medallist, informed that she has started her training and will do ‘special training’ once fully fit.
“I have started my rehab and strength training, and I’m seeing progress in myself. I’ll do some special training when I recover fully. I’ll do my best to make a comeback,” Mary Kom said.
