Hyderabad's Nikhat Zareen, who fights in the 51 kg weight category, hopes to achieve as much as her idol MC Mary Kom. She recently won a bronze medal in her category at the Senior Women's Nationals, and now aims to follow in the five-time world champion's footsteps. "Mary Kom is my idol; I never thought that I would have to face her in a bout. In Shillong, I faced her in the semifinals of the SAF Games trials. I won one of the four rounds while she won the other three, but it was an honour to fight against her," Zareen told NDTV.
