Mary Kom lost a close bout for the women’s 51kg spot in the Indian team for the Commonwealth Games to Pinki Jangra at the trials in Patiala.

After her bronze at the 2012 London Games, Mary had stayed away from competitive boxing for nearly a year-and-a-half.

In that time she had given birth to her third son, been engaged with endorsements, ad shoots and even a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film on her.

Mary had not been helped by the timing of the Nationals, which had been postponed from the April to May, throwing her regimen out of order.

Despite the setback, Jangra and national coach Kumar believe Mary will come roaring back in the ring in time for the Asian Games trials in August.

For all her protestations, Mary Kom has vowed to return for the Asian Games and no one doubts her willingness and skill in doing what she says.
