"I can't say about men's boxing but in women's section Mary and I will surely get a medal each," Sarita Devi said after inaugurating the first All Bengal Girls and Womens' Karate and Self Defence Championship.
"We know each other well and she has supported me throughout. Hopefully, we will return with Olympic medals from Rio," she added.
