Women’s junior middleweight world titlist Hanna Gabriels (19-2-1, 11 KOs), 36, Costa Rica, has signed a promotional deal with Lou DiBella. Gabriels retained her belt for the third time on Jan. 26 in a 10-round decision over Sarah Dwyer in Nicaragua, and then signed this week with DiBella, who has been a champion of women’s boxing. “This will truly bring out the best in me at this point in my career," Gabriels said. “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.”
