From San Jose, Costa Rica, Hanna Gabriels linked up with the specialized press, to talk about the great opportunity she has this coming April 17, as she will dispute the world heavyweight title against the Mexican Martha Patricia Lara Gaytan, in what is expected a memorable fight.
Hanna, who will fight for heavyweight belt, stresses that she wants to make history as the first female boxer from Costa Rica to win more than two world titles in different divisions. However, she confessed that it has not been easy, since 175 pounds is her natural weight and when she started sparring with heavyweight fighters, it took a lot of work.
She recalled that some years ago she met Don José Sulaimán, and in a conversation with friends that lasted for more than two hours. He told her that one day she would become champion of the WBC and that she would be a worthy representative of her country and the colors of the WBC. That moment, she cherishes with deep affection.
For Hanna this fight is very important, because she has the chance to show that Costa Rica has great potential because one of her plans is to sign fighters and support boxing in this beautiful region.
She thanked Mauricio Sulaimán for all the support and the opportunity. She also congratulated him for brilliantly continuing his father’s legacy.
