Gabriela Fundora Continues Title Campaign In Return Against Tania Hernandez

Top flyweight contender Gabriela “Dulce Veneno” Fundora (9-0, 4 KOs) will be returning to the ring against Tania Garcia Hernandez (7-6-2) in a showdown targeted for February in Mexico.

According to Fightnews, the tall and slender Fundora is due to fight for the WBC Youth Title against Hernandez. Boxing fans are familiar with the name Fundora as she is the sister of WBC interim junior middleweight belt-holder Sebastian Fundora. The Fundora clan is very close, with brother and sister training alongside their father, Freddy Fundora.

Like her brother, Dulce Veneno (Sweet Poison) is an aggressive southpaw fighter that takes advantage of her reach and height to perfection. Moreover, she is a good counterpuncher with a fan-friendly, aggressive nature and a motor that never runs out of gas.

The 20-year-old honed those skills in the amateur ranks while winning back-to-back junior Olympics in 2017 and 2018. In 2022, she fought four times and grabbed the vacant WBC Latino title after dominating Naomi Arellano Reyes by unanimous decision.

Fundora’s attributes are the reason for being fast-tracked toward a world championship. She took to social media to let the fans know of her return to the ring.
