Costa Rica Sports – Hanna Gabriel, the Costa Rican boxer, will expose her WBO and WBA world titles at 154-pounds this Saturday to Natasha Spence, of Canada.
She’s known for her strength and explosive speed. The two agreed to a 10-round bout on Costa Rican soil. Gabriel has been training for three months for the fight against the 31-year old, hoping to keep her belts in the country.
She is the first Costa Rican woman to unify the two 154-pound titles.
Spence is from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. She has eight bouts won, two losses and a draw since her debut in 2010. Hanna’s record is 16 won, a loss and a draw.
She’s been training with her husband for the fight, especially on side steps. She claims to have the best expert on side steps training with her in the Fight Club Fitness Gym in Escazu. She’s looking forward to fighting in her own country, which she hasn’t done since 2015.
