M C Mary Kom has attained number one position in the International Boxing Association's (AIBA) latest world rankings.

Mary Kom, also known as the Magnificent Mary, became the most successful boxer in world championships' history when she claimed the 48kg category top honours in November previous year in Delhi.

In the new ranking given by AIBA, Mary Kom is placed on the top with massive 1700 points having a lead of 600 points over the boxer at the second position in the 45-48 kg category.

She went on to win gold in each of the next five world championships. She recently proved herself to be the best in the world by claiming the 48 kg category top honours in November past year. She bagged a silver at the Strandja Memorial in Bulgaria.

She is likely to miss the 2020 Tokyo Olympics as her 48-kg category is not included in the Games roaster.

Among other Indian boxers, Pinki Jangra is placed eighth in the 51 kg category list, while Asian Championship silver medallist Manisha Maun holds the same position in the 54 kg weight division.

Kom won a silver at the inaugural women's world championships in 2001, kickstarting her worldwide career.
