Don't call me famous, but it's hard to be out with my friends now.

I want to go down in the history books as one of the greatest female boxers of all time, and I think I'm on the right path.

The Olympics is a dream of mine.

There's not a lot of positive role models of women in newspapers and magazines. I think it puts pressure on girls. They think that the image put out, it's the way you have to look.

I just happen to be a woman and involved in sport, but that doesn't necessarily make me a feminist.

The Bible is my sport psychology manual.

There have been a lot of challenges over the years that I have overcome.

I'm a huge fan of Conor McGregor, an incredible athlete. What he has done for MMA is phenomenal; he has been a great supporter of me.

I don't get complacent, because I know if you slack off, you're going to be found out. This is international boxing, and every fight is a tough fight.

Definitely, there's a lot of strength in depth in my division.

I know exactly what that's all about being in a male dominated sport. Sometimes it just takes one person to step out, to be a pioneer, a trailblazer, really.

As long as I still feel a passion for the sport and preparing for these big competitions, I will carry on fighting.

I owe so much to my dad and what he has done for me. And it's hard work doing what he has done, so he's entitled to a break.

You have to make sure you have the right people around you to get the right fights, and you're not guaranteed to get the best fights.

My training diet can be quite strict when I'm coming up to competition; it's a weight-making sport, of course. But I eat quite healthily anyway, and it's less strict when out of competition.

It's ridiculous having the pros in an amateur sport, but at the same time, there's a lot of pros who are going to struggle over three rounds.

I don't really change much; there's not much I can do about the judging in front of a home crowd.

There's a lot of people on the way up who want to take my place, so it's up to me to continue to improve.

It is frustrating, but all I can do is just keep winning, and hopefully, people will stand up and take notice eventually.

Age is a chronological number. That's all. There is plenty of time for my life afterwards. I'm still a young woman.

I can enjoy myself and express myself in the ring.

I became number one just after the World Championships in India. I was very young then, and I remember it was just a great feeling, my first World Championship.

I'm the one that everyone is trying to beat.

I've a great group of people, a great family behind me all the way, all the time. You cannot underestimate that.

I never went through an easy fight. Every fight has been hard fought.

Boxing was just another one to keep me going as a child.

I'm in a privileged position, but I still feel like the best is yet to come, and people still haven't seen the best of me yet, and that is so exciting for me.

When you're so consistent, people have to stand up and take notice. I don't think people recognise or praise consistency enough.

I never think too far ahead.

It doesn't matter who other people are saying the favourite is; I'm still going in to win the gold medal.

I do a good job of staying positive and just moving on.

I've boxed many people in their own backyard plenty of times - in China, I boxed a Chinese girl in the final of the world championships, and I've boxed Russians before in their home nation as well.

There is an awful lot of pressure on me.

I never think about losing. That's why it's so hard to accept a loss.

I look at what's in front of me. I concentrate on that and then hopefully move on.

I always come into these competitions hoping to come away with a gold medal. I won't relax until I have the gold medal around my neck.

It's important to have a healthy balanced diet but not to get too bogged down about it. It's important to enjoy your food, too.

I have stayed positiv,e and I believe I am still improving in every competition I enter.

The thing with professional boxing is you have to have the right promoter and the right fights. It is a cut-throat business.

It's the training that's the hardest. It's the preparation. The months and months of preparation that nobody really sees, that's the hardest part.

I tend to think year-by-year and tournament-by-tournament.

I go into every fight trying to win as easy as I can.

No world championship has been easy for me.

You're clearing your mind during a workout. Boxing is a great sport for girls; it's really safe.

We do the weigh-in, then go for a walk, then have breakfast, then I listen to worship songs on my iPod because I'm a Christian. I always read the same Bible verses, too. We do the same warm-up a lot of the time as well. But, I have no superstitions before a fight.

Anything other than a gold medal will be disappointing.

I'd like to thank everyone for all their support and prayers. I'm so humbled by that.

Mental strength is something you either have or you haven't.

I always feel like the freshest boxer going into competitions.
