Hanna Gabriels will return to the ring this week in her native Costa Rica to face Martha Lara for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Female Light Heavyweight championship. The Central American will fight the Mexican for the vacant belt at the Fiesta Casino in San Jose, in what is expected to be a great fight between two warriors of the ring.
The clash will be a great opportunity for both fighters, who are looking to move up in the boxing world and winning the black and gold belt is a huge step towards that goal.
Gabriels, who is the Super Welterweight champion of the pioneer organization, will seek this new challenge in her career. The Tica will step into the ring for the first time since 2019 due to the pause caused by the pandemic.
Lara is a tough fighter who is hungry to surprise everyone and has the Mexican heart needed for a commitment like this.
The local fighter has a record of 20 wins, 2 losses, 1 draw, and 11 KOs, while Lara has 11 wins, 9 losses, and 6 KOs.
