Global sports brand Puma on Monday announced their partnership with six-time boxing world champion Mary Kom, signing her on for a two-year deal.
Kom, a bronze medallist at the 2012 Olympics, won her record sixth gold medal at the World Amateur Boxing Championships in November last year.

Now, she has been roped in to lead the brand’s #DoYou campaign aimed at motivating Indian women.
“Being a woman and a mother I have faced several challenges that I have powered through thanks to my family and team,” Kom said in a statement.
“Puma as a brand has always believed in supporting and encouraging women, which made it a perfect fit for me.”
Puma India’s managing director Abhishek Ganguly hoped the partnership would inspire women across India.
“We are very thrilled to welcome Mary to the Puma family. Having consistently defied all odds to achieve a wide range of records and medals, she is an idol for women all over India.”
