Members of Froch's team pointed and looked on in amazement as the 36-year-old popped the question to model Cordingley, with whom he has a son Rocco and a daughter Natalia.

But afterwards Froch denied that it was an official proposal, claiming instead that he was reminding Cordingley of his promise to marry her.

"I did ask Rachael a sneaky question after the fight but it's not official," Froch said.

"I told her how much I love her. I didn't actually officially propose to her. I was going to but I couldn't sort a ring out.

"I will be marrying Rachael one day. This is the most special moment of my life – the next will be wedding Rachael and making us a proper family, me, my kids and her.

"This night will be remembered for defending title.'
