The weight of expectations is enormous on Mary Kom but grabbing a sixth-gold-medal at the World Championships won't be easy for the celebrated pugilist, says Indian boxing's High-Performance Director Santiago Nieva. One of the most decorated boxers from India, Mary Kom is a five-time world champion and London Olympics bronze medallist. The Manipuri will spearhead India's 10-member contingent in the World Championships, beginning Thursday.
