M C Mary Kom has attained number one position in the International Boxing Association's (AIBA) latest world rankings.  She became the most successful boxer in world championships' history when she claimed the 48kg category top honours in Delhi in November last year. In the d rankings put out by AIBA, Mary Kom is placed top of the charts in the weight division with 1700 points. She will have to jump to 51kg in pursuit of her 2020 Olympic dream as 48kg is not yet included in the Games roster.
