Fan favorite heavyweight boxer Alen Babic won his fight today, stopping Mark Bennett after five rounds of fighting at Matchroom Headquarters in Brentwood, England.

Babic, now 8-0 (8 KO), has emerged as something of a cult/folk hero type for boxing fans, a small heavyweight with a relentless attack and a charming, funny, intense, and likable personality.

He showed some of that personality after his win, too, as he proposed to his girlfriend during the post-fight interview. “Lady Savage” said yes.

As far as Babic’s boxing career goes, a lot remains to be seen. He’s clearly dominant at the level he’s been fighting at, but there are miles to go before he’s near the top levels of the sport. But nobody questions his heart or desire to get there, nor how fun he is to watch fight.

But right now he’s having an even bigger day than just the result of his boxing fight. We send our congratulations to the happy couple, with best wishes to them both.
