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.”

Betzing accepted his proposal in a heartwarming moment that rocked the stands, joking that she had become “sweaty” after embracing her now-fiance.

“I’m speechless,” she said of Brueckner’s proposal. “This is insane.”

Although touching, Brueckner’s proposal wasn’t the only major event to happen that evening: the KSI vs Logan Paul rematch has all eyes on the sport of boxing, with names like Billy Joel Saunders and Devin Hayes taking part on the card.

With their first bout resulting in a majority draw, the YouTubers are set to settle their long-standing grudge once and for all, drawing crowds to the Los Angeles Staples Center in hopes of a decisive victory by knockout.

FaZe Clan announce top 20 finalists for FaZe 5 & what’s coming next

The search for the next batch of FaZe5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, which were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s coming next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list is being slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details about it can be found below:

FaZe5 top-20 finalists

FaZe Clan have confirmed that the full list of the 20 finalists will be revealed on Sunday, November 29, at 12pm PT / 3pm ET.

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be announced, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
