(JULY 1) Fighting the best
in the world is something that doesn't come easy for female
fighters. We have larger obstacles to get the opponents to agree
on date and times and on top of that get paid decently, which is
about less than 1% of the pay of the men.
I will never doubt I am one
of the best fighters in the world right now and the best
Flyweight fighter in the world. I have taken on all challenges
with confidence and never back down from a big name. I have one
flaw on my record that I take with a heavy heart because the
conditions of the fight.

Ana Maria Torres says, "I am not
the best". I came to challenge Ana Maria Torres who
at the time was a world champion and 18-3-2 while I only
obtained a record of 5-0-2. Anyone would have said this fight
was a mismatch, and as a champion of her caliber, she should
have never fought a young girl with as little experience as me
and should have fought better. With a hurt back, and food
sickness from Mexico, I stood 10 rounds losing to Ana in a
decision. With that said, she goes to say I have fought no one
and am not the best.
I can publicly say,
I WANT MY REMATCH WITH ANA MARIA TORRES AND I WILL WIN. I AM NOT
A CHILD ANYMORE, I AM NOT HURT, AND I AM A BETTER FIGHTER.
As I respect Ana greatly, as a fighter, mother, wife and
inspiration to a lot of young women, business is business.
