Mary Kom, who is chasing her sixth gold, will draw her strength from the vast reservoir of almost two decades of boxing while the North Korean's USP is her aggression and quick movement which was witnessed on Tuesday when she pummelled her South Korean opponent Chorong Bak.

"I had defeated her in final of last Asian Championship in Vietnam, so I was a little alert". Taller boxers can have the advantage, they can get inside immediately and come back again.

Meanwhile, Lovlina is focussing on a gold medal as she faces Chinese Taipei's Chen Nien-Chin in the semi-final.

Hanna also recalled the semi-final bout against Mary in Poland.


The Indian had beaten Kim in her last meeting in the Asian Championships but the Manipuri veteran is confident. At present, Mary and Katie Taylor of Ireland have both five titles each but the Indian will have the opportunity to be in a league of her own on Saturday.

She also added: "My opponent was taller than me and strong also. I have worked with the coaches and have a plan in place to counter her", said Mary Kom, after a strenuous practice session Wednesday. "But both of us know about each other's style, but I am confident of winning because I have worked with the coaches on strategies". "I will look at her in the ring in the first round and then see from there".

"According to me, the bout was all right but not that good as I would have expected". Lovlina did not win any single round.

"I just can not believe that I have reached the final". No boxer from the African continent is left in the fray at the semifinal stage.

"I have beaten my North Korean opponent (Jo Son Hwa) once before. But anything can happen in a boxing bout", she had said after her first bout of the tournament.
