The young lovers flaunted their love on social media on November 11, 2011 when they announced their engagement.

It wasn't until the last year of high-school the pair became romantically involved, and schoolies week, when they confirmed their relationship.
The former schoolteacher beat his strongly-fancied opponent by unanimous decision in a bloody and brutal bout, where the three judges scored the fight 117-111, 115-113, 115-113.
Mean-spirited trolls attacked Jo following her husband's sensational win, writing vile sexist remarks online.

Jo said the pair continued to date until Jeff proposed in 2012, and they eventually married in September, 2014.
While Jo sat in a back room tending to her badly cut and bruised husband, she was berated by online trolls who knew nothing of the pair's history.
