Rosilete dos Santos becomes the Emeritus WIBA Champion
May 28, 2013
     
   
   

(MAY 28) Rosilete Dos Santos, who has boxed professionally since 2003, with an impressive professional boxing record has made a recent difficult decision in regards to her career in the ring.

Santos who successfully defended her WIBA Super Flyweight Champion on June 28, 2012, when she defeated Maria Jose Nunez in a 10-round unanimous decision and she had first won the belt that was vacant the previous year on July 2, 2011 is set to retire from the sport.

37-year old Santos told WBAN, "The age and bruises made me have that attitude. It was also difficult to lose weight before fights that also and also influenced me."

After her recent victory over Argentina Carina Britos on April 20, 2013, she said that she was going to retired. However, a decision published this week, secured her as an eternal when she was awarded emeritus champion with the WIBA (Women's World Boxing Association).

Upon Santos learning of the award, it took her by surprised, but she was very delighted.

Santos said, "It is the recognition of a successful career, although Brazil does not recognize me either. But my name will be immortalized in the world of boxing and sports. And best of all, the title came from WIBA, which is the largest entity in the world of women's boxing at the headquarters of boxing and sports, which are the United States."

Santos is set to have a farewell fight from the sport. On June 28, 2013, she is set to fight at the Centro de Excelência do Basquetebol, Sao Jose dos Pinhais, Parana, Brazil. According to Boxrec, she will leave the sport with over 34 professional fights. Santos also tells WBAN that she has had 16 amateur fights bringing her pro and amateur winning career at 42 wins.

Santos told WBAN after she leaves the sport, "I want to work with boxing. Will help promote the sport and teach boxing to our youth. I'm sure I and Minos (of Deliverance - husband Rosilete) can create other champions."
