The legendary M.C. Mary Kom and three debutants are in the same boat as they make their semifinal appearances in the World women's boxing championships at the Indira Gandhi Stadium Complex here over the next two days.
Mary Kom has earlier won a silver medal in the first edition of the World Championships and went on a rampage from 2002 to 2010 when she won 5 successive gold medals at the Championships.
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.
"The last time we met, it was a one-sided bout in the Asian Championships". Taller boxers can have the advantage due to their reach, they can get inside immediately and come back again.

"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". Unfortunately, Lovlina received a warning from the referee in the third round for hitting at the back of the head of the opponent and one point was cut from all the five judges. "But once inside the ring I allow my experience to take over". I was targeting a gold medal here after not being able to win any medal at the Commonwealth Games.
