New Delhi: Blessed with a third child, five-time world champion and Olympic medallist boxer M C Mary Kom is taking a one-year sabbatical from the ring while eagerly awaiting the release of a much-hyped biopic on her life starring Priyanka Chopra.

"I am taking a break. For the next six months, I won't be training, after that I will start light training and get back to competitive fitness," Mary Kom said while talking to PTI from Manipur.

"The entire process will take a year and I can afford that because there is no major international event lined up for the next 12 months at least," explained the 30-year-old, who is a record five-time world champion.
