In fact, Mary Kom even caught Rajyavardhan Rathore off guard. However, the sports minister made up for it and defended Mary Kom’s punches like a pro. Rajyavardhan Rathore, who was also a former athlete left no scope of error. Ditto with Mary Kom. Clearly, the on-lookers were quite amused to watch the two in action.
