Shelley Watts has a very simple message for the woman standing in between her and Australia's first Commonwealth Games gold medal in women's boxing: "I will not be stopped."
Nobody doubt her for a second. Watts smashed her way to the lightweight (60kg) gold medal match with a unanimous decision over Northern Ireland's Alanna Audley-Murphy, ending a highly successful day for an Australian boxing team that now has three fighters in gold medal bouts.
Watts will meet India's Laishram Devi, who on the evidence of the semi-finals should take out extra health insurance. Watts has been one of the most impressive boxers of the entire tournament - men and women - and will take some serious stopping here in Glasgow.
Audley-Murphy had sparred Watts before. During those exchanges, Watts said she kept missing her left hook by inches. Not this time. That left is a thing of beauty, the kind of crisp blow that sends boxing purists into mild fits and clobbers opponents, like Audley-Murphy, into submission.
"It's funny. I actually don't practice that (punch) much on the bag. I always used to concentrate on straight punches and body shots. It came out of nowhere. Everybody has that one instinctive punch and I guess that's mine," said Watts, who hails from the NSW mid-north coast but fights out of a gym in Penrith.
"I've actually done some sparring with that girl I just beat and I was just missing her with my left hooks by about six inches. I haven't missed it for about two weeks now."
To think Watts, now 26, has only been boxing for four years lends itself to thoughts of Rio and beyond. Her confidence has grown with every fight after she dispatched England's Natasha Jonas, the gold medal favourite, in the first round.
The final-year law student will have added even more punches to her repertoire - some angles on the inside, an uppercut may help - by the time Rio arrives and there's no reason why she can't be a major player in the lightweight division, which has been ruled by Ireland's brilliant Katie Taylor.
Barring Devi loading up her gloves with horseshoes, gold in Glasgow looks a formality. No boxer here has been able to find a way around Watts' aggression, strong defence and punching power.
"I don't know if she should be scared. But she should know I'm going for gold. I'm not just bringing it home for myself I'm bringing it home for my family," Watts said. "My little brother (Jai) posted on Facebook today and told me that I was his hero. I can't wait to get back home and put that medal around his neck."
The Watts' story began in Port Macquarie, when she took up the sport for fitness as she recovered from a knee reconstruction. She showed abundant ability but swore she would never step foot in the ring. Certain promises are just made to be broken.
"I don't know what changed my mind but it's the best decision I've ever made," Watts recalls. "It was in Armidale. I stopped the girl in one minute and 20 seconds. The score was 18-0 when it stopped. She didn't actually punch me. I was trained well."
Outside of boxing, Watts is a passionate supporter of the NRL's South Sydney Rabbitohs, once pledging to get a tattoo if they ever won the grand final. On Saturday night in Glasgow, the 'glory, glory' could be all hers.
