New Delhi :

M C Mary Kom is probably the most consistent that India has ever produced and the ace woman boxer hungry for more even after winning her fifth consecutive World Boxing title.

She spoke exclusively to NDTV just after accomplishing the new feat and sounded as energetic and as hungry for success as ever.

On being asked about the celebrations she said, "all the boxers got together to celebrate and party and we enjoyed a lot."

"I can't say anything about winning a Gold at the Olympics right now. I can only speak after the competition is over. But I will try my level best", said the champion boxer who is by far the favourite to win the gold at the London Olympics where Women's Boxing makes its debut.

Mary Kom though knows that there is very little time for her to bask in the glory of her recent success as she has an important bout against Sarita Devi in the 51 Kg category to qualify for the Asian Games.

"I have been preparing for that for so long now. I trained at the national camp for a month."

The Manipuri boxer said that it was difficult for her to gain 2 kgs to fight in the 48 Kg category this time and all this was possible because of the support of the Olympic Gold Quest foundation.
