I still have the age on my side, can compete till 40: Mary Kom on making a comeback


Indian ace boxer Mary Kom might have bowed out of the ongoing Tokyo Olympics but the ace boxer has no plans to retire. In the bout, Mary Kom faced a shocking defeat-split decision-at the hands of Colombia’s Ingrit Valencia to bow out from the tournament this week. When asked about making a comeback, Mary Kom while speaking to ANI, said “Yes, yes. Why not? I still have the age. I can play till 40. She said, “I feel bad coming back with nothing. I wanted to return with a medal. I got support from the nation. It was manipulated (decision) and cheating. I won the 1st 2 rounds (in Round of 16 clash) and how can I lose then. I want to apologise to the country.”
