“From my experience, I understood there were some who were extremely solid, while some were powerless. My pre-quarterfinal session against Thailand’s Jutamas Jitpong was especially dubious since she was solid and, she was assaulting. Be that as it may, when some fighter assaults, I don’t stop. I realize how to deal with inside the ring. I additionally have a great deal of techniques,” she completed off with a grin.
