(Video) ‘Jewish Hammer’ Proposes in the ring after win

It was a night Cletus Seldin will never forget. Not only did the 37-year-old boxer from Brooklyn earn a hard-fought majority decision victory over Jose Angulo at the Madison Square Garden Theater, but he also got engaged to his partner Jessica Ostrowski in an emotional moment right after the fight.

After having his hand raised in victory, Seldin called Ostrowski into the ring and poured his heart out to her over the microphone. “Three years ago, we both told each other, ‘I know what I don’t want in a relationship,'” Seldin said. “Ever since then, I have found exactly what I want in a relationship.”

He then got down on one knee and proposed marriage to a stunned Ostrowski. “Will you marry me?” Seldin asked. Ostrowski happily accepted, and the couple embraced and celebrated their engagement as the crowd roared its approval.

The storybook ending capped an eventful night for the Jewish boxer known as the “Hebrew Hammer.” In the fight itself, Seldin rocked Angulo with huge punches in the first two rounds, dropping him twice. But the durable Ecuadorian fighter battled back hard, staggering Seldin at times as the bout turned into a grueling brawl.

When the final bell rang, Seldin had earned scorecards of 78-72, 77-73, and a 75-75 draw to record his 28th professional victory against just one defeat. Ring magazine’s Doug Fischer praised the gutsy Seldin’s heart and determination on the broadcast, saying “The struggles are managerial, promotional, political,” implying he doesn’t get the opportunities his talent deserves.

But on this night, those struggles were forgotten as Seldin celebrated the biggest win of his boxing career and his new life engagement in unforgettable fashion. As he and his new fiance joyfully made their way around the ring, the Jewish Hammer had certainly hammered out a moment to remember forever.
