The former Khel Ratna awardee Mary Kom (48kg) defeated Alice Kate Aparri of Philippines 8-1 in the semifinal.
"I am very happy to have come so far. I will do my best to win a gold even this time but I am not thinking too much about it because I need to focus on my game. If I fight well, I will win," said Kom.
When asked about how she felt after semifinal, she said, "I am confident and will do my best to clinch a gold. I know it would be historic but I don't want to put myself under pressure by thinking about all this."
Mary's final opponent will be her old rival Steluta Duta of Romania who defeated Kazakhstan's Nazgul Boranbayeva 10-5.
