The long-awaited KSI vs Logan Paul boxing rematch is the talk of the town - but another fight on the card is setting the internet abuzz, and it’s not because of a brutal knockdown.

Social media star and MMA fighter Joshua Brueckner made an appearance on the undercard against opponent Tyler Smith for a Cruiserweight bout, which he won by unanimous decision.

However, it wasn’t his landslide victory that caught the public’s eye - instead, it was a surprising development that took place during his post-fight interview in the ring.

Brueckner’s girlfriend, fitness influencer Katie Betzing, was in attendance at the fight, who first met the star during her very first day of boxing class at his gym.

While giving his thoughts on his November 9 boxing match, Brueckner pulled out a ring, asking Betzing to marry him in an unexpected turn of events.

“I've always wanted to do this, come here baby," the fighter admitted. “I don't want to spend another day without you.”
