Commonwealth Games gold medallist discus thrower Krishna Poonia is ready to face world champion Dani Samuels for the $20,000 winner-takes-all contest anywhere in the world as long as the Asian Games preparation is not compromised, said her husband Virender.

Australian media had reported that Samuels was hurt by Poonia's pre-Games comment that her "poor form" was the reason behind her pull out from the just-concluded CWG and she now wants a 'revenge match'.

Poonia's husband Virender said Krishna was ready to face the challenge anywhere but they would not compromise on the preparation of the Asian Games next month.

"Krishna is preparing for the Asian Games. So we won't compromise on her training. If she (Dani) wants to compete with her before the Asian Games then let her come to India. Krishna is ready to face her anywhere. Do it in USA if you want but it has to be within a week after the Games," Virender, who is also her coach, told PTI.
