In the last decade, crimes against women have increased 30 times as compared to the year 2000 according to the National Crime Records Bureau In fact, London Olympics bronze medal-winning boxer MC Mary Kom, who was yesterday appointed as brand ambassador of the Super Fight League (SFL), has also admitted to having been a victim of eve teasing.

She thus felt Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a blessing for Indian women. “For the past 11 years, boys have teased me in Delhi, Punjab and Haryana but I never responded to them. I feel the SFL will benefit women fighters in more ways than one. It will help them in self defence,” Mary Kom said on the sidelines of an event to promote SFL.
