A Fighting Couple: Hubby Wins, Wife Loses

The “wife” is the more popular of the couple,  “she” getting all the TV coverage

This one could be for the record books, as the fighting couple of Bryan and Hanna, both won and lost this past week. They weren’t fighting each other, rather each gave and took blows in the boxing ring in their respective matches.

Tiquito’s (slang for little Costa Rican) professional career includes interim champion title World Boxing Association (WBA) in the super featherweight category.

The loser, Hanna Grabriel, whose night didn’t go very well after being shockingly knocked out in just two rounds by unknown 18-year-old challenger Oxandia Castillo (12-0-2, 9 KOs) of the Dominican Republic.

Hanna  is the daughter of Yolanda Valle Moreno and Lesslie Gabriel Binns, a promising boxer who qualified for the Olympic Games in Moscow 1980, but was unable to attend.  Her career has been highlighted by several international victories. On December 19, 2009 Gabriel won the World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight (147 pounds) World Championship against Argentine Gabriela Zapata by technical knockout during the fourth round.

On May 29, 2010 Gabriel defeated the Dominican Gardy Pena in Bayamón, Puerto Rico to win the World Boxing Organization (WBO) junior middleweight (154 pounds) World Champion title in a fight that lasted only 11 seconds. On January 11, 2011, Hanna won by TKO (Technical Knockout) to retain the World Championship Title against her rival, Melisenda Pérez.

On March 31, 2011, Hanna fought and defeated Melisenda Pérez once again while defending her World Championship Title during the inauguration acts of Costa Rica’s new National Stadium in front of 14.000 attendees. It took Hanna seven rounds to defeat her rival by knockout.[

Vasquez and Gabriel have been married for over a year and at one point in 2012 both were simultaneously world titleholders.

Gabriel is, by the way, the more popular of the two among boxing fans in the Central American nation and was the main event of the card on Thursday.
