Mumbai, July 30, 2021: Actress Priyanka Chopra has showered praises on Indian boxer Mary Kom after her Tokyo Olympics 2020 journey came to an end. The six-time world boxing champion lost to Colombia's Ingrit Valencia, who won bout 3-2 in the flyweight (51kg) pre-quarterfinal, on Thursday (July 29).

Priyanka Chopra, who played Mary Kom in the boxer's biopic, took to social media and hailed the Bronze medalist of the London Olympics (2012). Sharing the picture of Mary, PC wrote, "This is what the ultimate champion looks like… Bravo @MangteC… you've shown us how to go the distance with passion and dedication. You inspire us and make us proud Every.Single.Time Raising hands #Legend".

Meanwhile, Mary Kom slammed the International Olympic Committee's Boxing Task Force for "poor judging" in her flyweight (51kg) pre-quarterfinal at the Tokyo Games which she lost despite winning two of the three rounds. The Task Force is conducting the boxing competition in Tokyo after the International Boxing Association (AIBA) was suspended by the IOC for alleged misgovernance and financial wrongdoing.

"I had beaten this girl twice in the past. I couldn't believe that her hand was raised by the referee. I swear, it hadn't struck me that I lost, I was so sure", said Mary adding, "The worst part is that there is no review or protest. Honestly I am sure the world must have seen, this is too much what they have done," she said. "I should have got the second round unanimously, how was it 3-2? What happened was totally unpredictable".
