Her brother, Sebastian Fundora, is nicknamed the Infernal Tower and at the age of 20 Gabriela intends to build a similar reputation in .

The Californian fighter has eight professional fights, four of which she has finished before the limit, and she stands out in the ring not only for that power, but also for her 1.75-meter height in one of the smallest divisions in boxing, flyweight.

Gabriela is nicknamed Dulce Veneno and she started boxing when she was 6 years old, because the sport of fists is something that runs in the family. She said that she began to copy her brother’s steps and liked the feeling of stepping into the ring.

With a record of 36-1 in the amateur field, Gabriela – 20 years old – decided to debut in the professional in May 2021 and with fights between the United States and Mexico, she has begun to gain ground that she knows that at some point It will open the doors to the dispute of a world championship.

In her last outing, Gabriela achieved an eight-round victory against Mexican Lucía Hernández in a duel held in Indio, California. The victory came by unanimous decision and with this the slender boxer continues to advance steps to be able at some point to challenge the champion of the division, who at the moment is the Mexican-American and Olympian Marlen Esparza.

The undefeated Fundora fighters – as Sebastian is 19-0-1, with 13 knockouts – join a long list of brothers who tried their luck in the ring such as brothers Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko, Juan Manuel and Rafael Márquez, Erik and Pelucho Morales, Canelo and his brothers, as well as Callum Smith from England among many others.
