Rajyavardhan Rathore and Mary Kom took part in a friendly boxing match.
Boxing champion MC Mary Kom has treated her Twitter followers to a wonderful video which shows her sparring with Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore. About two hours ago, the five-time world champion and Olympic bronze medalist posted a video of the friendly match. She is seen throwing punches, joking and sharing tips all at the same time.
Mr Rathore – also an Olympic medalist in shooting – is seen giving his best to cheers and applause. His efforts did impress Mary Kom – who clearly had the upper hand. She thanked him for his support while sharing the video.
"Seeing is believing. Thank you Hon'ble @Ra_THORe ji for all the supports and encouragement's. #PunchMeinHainDum," wrote Ms Kom.

What a spectacular friendly bout this, as @Ra_THORe defends punches from champion boxer @MangteC. The Sports Minister met the powerful women's boxing contingent who will represent India in the World Boxing Championship tp be held in Delhi, later this month. #PunchMeinHainDumhttps://t.co/C4hdXuBc5n

In May this year, Mr Rathore posted a fitness challenge on Twitter, urging everyone to shoot a video of their "fitness mantra" and share it. He nominated cricketer Virat Kohli, actor Hrithik Roshan and badminton player Saina Nehwal to take part in the fitness challenge – which had gone viral and received hundreds of responses, including one from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
