Bridgetown (Barbados), Sep 18: India's woman boxer M C Mary Kom on Saturday  claimed a historic fifth successive World Championship title, beating Steluta Duta of Romania 16-6 in the final here.

Mary Kom, who competed in the 48kg category, had defeated Alice Kate Aparri of Philippines 8-1 in semifinal yesterday to assure herself of at least a silver in the sixth edition of the competition.

The former Khel Ratna awardee from Manipur thus remained the only boxer to have won a medal in each edition of the World Championship.

Duta had defeated Kazakhstan's Nazgul Boranbayeva 10-5 in the semifinal. PTI
