He may have lost a belt inside the ring, but he is expected to gain a wife after popping up a ring, engagement, after his knockout loss.

Khurvin Jhon “KJ” Natuplag lost one of his crowns over the weekend, but he could yet be the happiest man alive after getting a sweet yes from the woman he loves.

Natuplag lost in his first title defense of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) Oriental to Liu Wensong of China last February 4 at the VIC Sports Complex in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The Dubai-based Natuplag was surprised by a left cross on his chin followed by a right and left powerful unanswered punches by Wensong in the first round of their scheduled 10 round fight.

Referee Jojo Torres stopped the fight surprising Natuplag who now seeks a rematch because he was only surprised by the Chinese who improves to 8 wins, 1 loss, 1 draw, while the Ifugao fighter drops to 11-4-2 with 10 knockouts.

It came a surprise to Natuplag who climbed the ring with girlfriend Jade Kelly Custodio, a Filipino nurse working in Dubai, who also expressed her surprise.

But Natuplag later surprised everybody when he went down on his knees, offered a ring to his girlfriend and asked for his hand, to which Custodio said yes.

They are now planning to first go home to the Philippines in July.

“Natuplag was clearly not 100 percent in the fight. I was already expecting that he’ll pop the question to his girlfriend,” said inoy Boxing Prodigy top man Darwin Miller Dep-ay, who again flew to Dubai to see his former fighter defend his crown.

Natuplag earlier stopped Boonrueang Phayom of Thailand in the 2nd round to win the vacant WBO Oriental title last November 12 last year also in Dubai.

He also won the WBC Asian Boxing Council featherweight by knocking Attanon Kunlawong of Thailand in the 2nd round in June 24 last year in Dubai. Pigeon Lobien
