Nevertheless, the 35-year-old, who had gotten better of her younger rival in the final to win the Asian championships title last year, will have to be careful against the North Korean, who may have revenge on her mind.

She beat Kim past year to clinch her fifth Asian Championship title, but was not underestimating her opponent.
She also added: "My opponent was taller than me and strong also". 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. "I am confident of winning because I have worked with the coaches on my strategies", said Sonia.
