Mary Kom faced a shocking defeat -- split decision -- at the hands of Colombia's Ingrit Valencia to bow out from the ongoing Tokyo Olympics today. Valencia has moved to the quarter-finals in the women's flyweight (48-51kg) category event.

HOW?

Valencia got off to a flyer as she won the first round. Four out of the five judges gave her a 10 while one had a 9 for her showing.

Mary Kom came back with a flurry of punches on Valencia to win the second round but the Rio Olympics bronze medallist maintained the lead.

In the third round also, Mary Kom gave her best, but in the end, it was just not enough on the day.
