The atmosphere at the Indian camp was immensely positive as the Indian quartet M.C. Mary Kom (48kg), Lovlina Borgohain (69kg), Sonia (57 kg) and Simranjit Kaur (64 kg) are gearing up for the Aiba Women's World Boxing Championship semifinals beginning on Thursday. With the sensational victory, Mary Kom secured the final berth in the 48 kg category and will now eye her sixth gold medal in world championships.

India have not won a gold since 2010 when Mary Kom won her last medal.

Best Wishes to Mary Kom didi for the semifinal bout of the World Championships.

"The last time we met, it was a one-sided bout in the Asian Championships". Taller boxers can have the advantage, they can get inside immediately and come back again.

On the other hand, another Indian boxer from Assam, Lovlina Borgohain, lost 4-0 to Chen Nien-Chin of Taipei in the semi-final round of the 69 kg category of the event. Once I study the opponent in the first round I know how to tackle her.

Mary Kom has enjoyed a stellar year so far, claiming gold medals at the Commonwealth Games, the inaugural India Open and an worldwide tournament in Poland.

"She (Hyang) could be coming with some plans against me because I had beaten her past year".

Mary Kom had earlier beaten Okhota, who she will meet in the final, in the Silesian International Boxing Championships in Poland earlier this year.

"She could be coming with some plans against me because I had beaten her a year ago".

"My opponent was taller, stronger than me". Taylor now plies her trade in the professional circuit. "I am confident of winning because I have worked with the coaches on my strategies", said Sonia. I have seen the fan following she has in the country. Lovlina did not win any single round. "But once inside the ring I allow my experience to take over". A point was cut from me in the final round, but there was a lot of closing, pulling and pushing from both of us.

The difference in experience showed between the two as Petrova controlled Maun's aggression with well timed counters, majority in combinations that unsettled the Indian.

"I have worked hard and am prepared well for my bout", she said.

Another North Korean, Asian Games silver medallist Son Hwa Jo, who beat the accomplished Sonia Lather in the Asiad this year, will challenge Sonia Chahal.
