Mumbai, July 25 - Actress Priyanka Chopra fought with real boxers in Mary Kom, a biopic on the five time World Champion boxer. She says it was not easy to take a full-on punch from professional boxers during the shoot.

All my opponents in the film were real boxers, Priyanka said here in an interview.

It was very difficult to shoot with them because they are real boxers and they don't know how to fake a punch, they had to really hit you. So I had to get hit a lot and that was really hard, she added.
