“I will soon approach her to become the brand ambassador of my boxing academy. Hopefully she will agree”, Mary Kom told on Monday.
She stated that the film released last week has brought the spotlight on boxing and now she wants to open branches of her boxing academy in other cities of India.
The academy was set up in 2006 at the Langol Games Village residential complex in Imphal West district. Mary Kom is imparting her skills in 33 in-residence student boxers at present in her academy.
“If Priyanka endorses the academy it will be good for boxing because I need support from different quarters. It will help us attract young talent into the sport”, added Marykom.
Mary Kom is the only woman boxer to win a medal in all the six world championships including the 2012 Olympics.
