The 35-year-old, who entered the finals of the Commonwealth Games today, is keen to ensure that her career continues for another two years before she considers calling time on a stellar stint inside the ring.
"I am thinking of skipping Asian Games, if I am asked I will go but I will take a decision on that later. I have to ensure that I am in top shape for the World Championships so may be I will skip Asian Games and take a small break," Mary Kom (48kg) said after her win over Sri Lanka's Anusha Dilrukshi Koddithuwakku.
The five-time world champion and Olympic bronze medallist has been competing non-stop for the last five months starting with the Asian Championships in November, where she won a gold.
"The body needs some rest too. I am not completely ruling out competing in the Asian Games but it is definitely on my mind that perhaps I will give it a miss," she reiterated.
India last hosted the women's World Championships in 2006, where Mary Kom had won a gold medal.
