Australian boxing star Ebanie Bridges is all set to defend her IBF bantamweight title for the first time against fellow Australian Shannon O’Connell at the First Direct Arena in Leeds.
Before the fight went down, the boxing beauty thrilled fans by stripping down to her intimates for her pre-fight weigh-in. The Australian has become well known with her uniquely sexy take on pre-fight preparations.
After stripping out of her jacket, the Blonde Bomber smiled at the crowd as she revealed a Leeds United top, but quickly ditched for a eye-popping see-through bra and underwear combination.
She waved and blew a kiss to the crowd before squaring up to O’Connell. Bridges and O’Connell have been trading blows for weeks, with the latter referring to her as a “fat cunt” as well as a “skanky stripper” after throwback photos of Bridges before she started training went viral.
O’Connell blames their entire rivalry on Bridges.
“Ebanie has taken it beyond boxing by getting personal,” O’Connell said. “I’ll break her down and make her quit. I think she think she talks too much, she forgets what she says so she contradicts herself every time she opens her mouth. I don’t like her.”
She even admitted she hates the way she behaves during weigh-ins.
“The rivalry probably came from me not liking the way Ebanie conducts herself. I’ve got a 15-year-old daughter and if I was doing the things Ebanie is doing it would be basically telling my 15-year-old daughter, ‘get your clothes off and you can basically get what you want in life’.
“That’s not what I’m about. Guy or girl it doesn’t matter who you are and what you’ve done – work hard for what you want. She knows what she’s doing getting on those scales’ half naked in her lingerie.
Bridges heads into the bout having won eight of her nine professional fights, while O’Connell boasts a record of 23 wins and six defeats from 30 fights.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
