Why Mary Kom refused to shake hands with Nikhat after win

Dec 28, 2019 16:59 IST

MC Mary Kom refused to shake hands with compatriot Nikhat Zareen after she beat her challenger 9-1 with a unanimous decision on Saturday, too book a place in the Olympic qualifiers. The standoff comes after Zareen demanded a fair Olympic trial against Mary Kom. Mary Kom said, "Why should I shake hands with her? If she respects me then I will respect her. If she does not respect me, how can I respect her?".
