Photos: Oxandia Castillo Shocks Hanna Gabriel, TKO in Two

By Jhonny Gonzalez

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.
