Hailing from Manipur, Sarita Devi is another boxing legend like Mary Kom. Sarita has to her credit five Asian titles besides being a World Champion. She made headlines following her 2014 Asian Games controversial final loss, but by far the most reputed and successful in Indian boxing.

The Arjuna Awardee, who has spent over a decade and a half in boxing, was elected in 2018 as a representative of women boxers in India to the national federation’s executive council. This is one of the highlights of her boxing career. She picked silver at the Indian Open International championships in New Delhi in January this year and represented India at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast.

Sarita has the rare distinction of winning five medals, including four gold and silver in five different weight categories at the Asian championships.
