Photos: Oxandia Castillo Shocks Hanna Gabriel, TKO in Two
The entire crowd at Estadio Ricardo Saprissa in San Jose, Costa Rica was shocked with the outcome of the main event, when Oxandia “La Loba” Castillo (12-0-2, 9 KOs), an undefeated 18-year-old Dominican boxer, captured the WBO super welterweight championship by stopping previously undefeated hometown champion Hanna Gabriel (13-1-1, 9 KOs). Gabriel was coming off a long layoff due to ongoing back issues that led to surgery. She got caught hard by a right hand that put her down on her back and the referee deemed her unfit to continue when she beat the count.
