Husband wins but wife loses in Costa Rica

By Robert Coster

Yet another one for the record books. It happened yesterday at the Ricardo Saprissa Stadium in San Jose , Costa Rica. Local boy and former WBA super featherweight champion Bryan “Tiquito” Vasquez (30-1, 16 KOs) made a succesful return to ring action with a one round knockout of Dominican visitor Luis Ernesto Jose (31-11-2, 26 KOs). However, things didn’t turn out so well for his wife, WBO female jr middlweight champion Hana Gabriel (13-1-1, 9 KOs) who, as previously reported, lost her title 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. 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.
