New Delhi, Dec. 29 -- MC Mary Kom will represent India in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics qualifier in China as she defeated Nikhat Zareen 9-1 at the final bout of the 51kg selection trials held on Saturday.

This was a fight some time in the making; Zareen had claimed that Kom would be given a direct entry to the qualifiers, bypassing the rules. At the end of the bout, Kom was all fury as she snubbed Zareen's gesture of reaching out for a hug and walked away.p24
