Having previously won gold medals in 2002, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010 (and a silver in 2001), the magnificent Mary has become the most successful woman boxer in the history of World Championships.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated MC Mary Kom for winning a record sixth gold medal in the Women's World Championships on Saturday. In the boxer's autobiography "Unbreakable", she was quoted, "For a large part of my career, I had no sponsors".
Lovlina pointed out how the New Delhi championships has given the Indian boxers the confidence they needed.
With gold No. 6, the current Member of Parliament in the Rajya Sabha has set her sight on the 2020 Tokyo Olympics gold. "I am a little bit emotional".

However, it was later confirmed the game had been suspended until 5pm local time (8pm United Kingdom time) on Sunday. The two sides are locked at 2-2 from the first leg two weeks ago, which was delayed for 24 hours due to the weather.
The third round was more or less about the Ukrainian's desperate tactics to find ways to land her straight punches on Mary Kom's face. That medal tally later swelled to four, with 21-year-old Sonia Chahal claiming a silver after going down in the 57 kg final. She thanked the coaches who taught her throughout and the current Indian support staff.
The former Asian Games gold medallist and Olympic bronze medallist had also won the gold at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, earlier this year. The crowd went berserk and when the result was announced, the noise reached its crescendo, and Mary Kom bowed to acknowledge. Making her first World Championships final appearance, Sonia managed to seal a silver medal to end India's campaign on a high. Her opponent was just 3 years old when Mary won her first championship.
The first round of the match was a close contest but by midway into the second round, Mary Kom was all over her opponent with powerful hooks with her right hand accompanied by quick jabs from her left.
"I will try my best in the final".
"I will analyse my weaknesses and work hard for the 2020 Olympics". The only Indian woman to win an Olympic medal.
