Calvillo while adressing the media revealed that she believes Suarez is one of the best female strawweight fighters in the world and that she is not looking for easy fight, but wants to fight the best. Here’s what she had to say:
Honestly, I think she (Suarez) is one of the best in the world, she is undefeated. No body has been able to beat her yet. You know I wanna be the best, I wanna be the champion and I feel like you know that I don’t wanna pick just the right fights to get me to the title. I wanna beat the best and whatever happens I wanna fight the best and I do feel that she is one of the best in the world.
I think I have a pretty good ground game and I got good wrestling too. I feel like I would give her a run for her money. I feel like it is the fight to make.
