Rosilete Dos Santos of Brazil hangs up the Gloves inside the Ring

(SEPT 10) WBAN has received an official retirement statement from Brazilian multi-world champion Rosilete Dos Santos, who is hanging up the gloves inside the ring---but she assures WBAN that she will be the spokesperson for the fight for more amateur female boxers in the next Olympics.

Santos told WBAN, "I thank all the people who have helped me in my career in boxing,  and who believed in me and who were with me in the most difficult moments of my life.   Know, I did the best for our country of Brazil and boxing. I'm an Emeritus Champion and in 100 years or more the new will remember that Sanjaya was the first woman to win this title for the Brazil will stay forever in the memory of the FUTURE."

On August 7, 2013,  World Champion Rosilete dos Santos went on board with WBAN to openly support the expansion of weight classes for the female boxers in the next Olympics Games.  Rosilete dos Santos said women's boxing needs more representation.   The women's boxing has been included in the Olympics Games in the last edition in 2012. However, only three weight categories were included. 

Santos said, "The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has promised to review the disputes for the next game in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro 2016.  However, the difference between men's boxing and women's boxing in the Olympics seems to continue in the next game, which will take place in 2016.  The men's boxing will be played with ten weight categories while women's boxing will continue with only three categories."

Santos has had a long and successful boxing career that dates back  to July 25, 2003, when she made her debut at the Club Justo Jose de Urquiza, Caseros, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Santos, is now 29-5-0 (15KO), having only one loss out of 17 of her last fights since December 10, 2008.

She has won several world title belts (WIBA, GBU, WIBF) that not only includes the fact that she is the first Brazilian female boxer to ever win a world title.

Santos is a great ambassador of her country and is a role model for female boxers in the sport.  She will continue to fight the fight for the rights and equality for female boxers in the sport.
