Boxing champion Mar Kom faced Nikhat Zareen in the final of 51kg women's boxing trial on Saturday. In the final, Mary Kom won by a split 9-1 verdict. A video of Mary Kom's reaction after the bout started, surfaced online and it is doing the rounds on social media. In the video, the six-time world champion can be seen walking past Nikhat Zareen without shaking hands.

When she was questioned about the same, she reportedly said that she ‘does not like such people’.  News agency ANI quoted her as saying, “Why should I shake hands with her? If she wants others to respect her then she should first respect others. I don't like people with such nature. Just prove your point inside the ring, not outside."

For the unversed, Mary Kom booked her participation in the Indian team for the 2020 Olympic qualifiers. It is slated to be held in Wuhan, China. Zareen had earlier demanded a 'fair chance' to contest the Tokyo Olympic qualifiers. Zareen, had in October, written to the Sports Ministry challenging the Boxing Federation of India's (BFI) decision to accommodate world champion Kom by changing its rule of exempting gold and silver medalists from the World Cup.
