Face-off antics are not uncommon in boxing. Fighters throwing tantrums, trying to head-butt each other, and at times, even fighting before the fight – are all usual sights.

But what happened during the face-off between Mikaela Lauren and Cecilia Braekhus on Monday is perhaps something that you would have never seen before.

Following the press conference, the duo inched closer for a staredown when – after locking eyes for a moment – Lauren decided to plant a kiss on Braekhus’ lips.

Braekhus was surprised as she shoved her opponent away.

Lauren (29-4) may have tried to distract her opponent’s mindset, but she will have a mountainous task ahead when she trades punches with the unbeaten Braekhus (31-0), the undisputed welterweight champion.

The duo will meet at the Oslofjord Convention Center in Stokke, Norway, on October 21.
