Costa Rican World Champion Boxer Hanna Gabriels announced she has signed a three year contract with US promotion company DiBella Entertainment.
Gabriels, who just a few days ago successfully defended her WBA World Female Super Welterweight title (154 lbs) against Aussie fighter Sarah Dwyer, currently holds a record of 19 wins 2 losses and 1 draw.
“When you have the opportunity to sign a fighter of this stature, of either gender, you take it,” said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. “Hanna Gabriels is a sensational talent and an incredible woman. She showed it against Claressa Shields, and with her exceptional resume, that she is among the best of the best in female boxing.
“Remarkably, Hanna reached the pinnacle of the sport without an amateur career. She is perfectly bilingual and extraordinarily marketable. We’re thrilled to work with one of Costa Rica’s biggest stars and one of the biggest stars in women’s boxing.”
“I feel so privileged and honored to sign with Lou DiBella. This will truly bring out the best in me at this point in my career,” said Gabriels. “Lou has done a great job for many years supporting women’s boxing and I want to be a part of his work and further my career.
Gabriels expects to fight again in March at the Madison Square Garden in New York.
