Carl Froch celebrates with his girlfriend after his victory over Geroge Groves during their IBF and WBA World Super Middleweight bout at Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday

English boxer Carl Froch has reportedly proposed to his girlfriend inside the ring at Wembley Stadium, just moments after he knocked out his rival George Groves during their boxing bout.

Froch, who is a four-time world champion and the current reigning IBF champion at super middleweight, got down on one knee in front of thousands of fans after he won the bout after knocking out Groves with a hammer of a right hook in the eight round.

According to the Mirror, Froch, who seemingly proposed Rachael Cordingley in the ring, has two kids -- Rocco, three and Natalia, who has just turned one-with his girlfriend.

However, the proposal seems to have been a misfire because after the match Froch had said that it was not for real.

Froch was reportedly unable to propose properly because he had not sorted out a ring in time.

Abbey Clancy's endless legs have been voted as the 'best legs in showbiz' by British folks.

In a survey conducted by Veet and Scholl, the 28-year-old model and presenter, claimed the honour with a sexy photo shoot for the brand, where she flaunts her slender limbs, beating Holly Willoughby, Kelly Brook, Tess Daly and Cat Deeley, the Daily Star reported.

The beauty, who is married to English footballer Peter Crouch, said that she feels best when her legs and feet are well cared for, but hides them in a pair of skinny jeans and ballet pumps when she knows they have been neglected.
