It’s been quite a week for Ebanie Bridges, who started an OnlyFans, defends her world title – and now meets Tyson Fury.
On Saturday night, Bridges was on Josh Warrington’s undercard against Luis Alberto Lopez and defended his IBF bantamweight title against fellow Aussie Shannon O’Connell.
There was some bad blood between the two in the prep, as O’Connell called Bridges a “skanky stripper” due to her preference for attending weigh-ins dressed in lingerie.
In response to O’Connell’s teasing, Bridges said on the Main Event Boxing Podcast, “The skanky stripper thing, I’m going to have shirts made that say ‘skanky stripper.’
“I wonder how you’re going to explain that you got beat up by a seedy stripper who doesn’t take the sport seriously?”
And now it looks like O’Connell will indeed have some explaining to do, as she was stopped in the eighth round of her matchup with Bridges.
It’s also been a big week for Bridges, as she launched her OnlyFans account at last Friday’s weigh-in, which promises “professional lingerie shoots, behind-the-scenes workout footage and intimate at-home content.” .
In a statement, Bridges said, “I was the first to weigh in with lingerie and received a lot of backlash and controversy.
“But it paved the way for other women in sport to have the confidence to do the same.
“I expect similar controversy on this, but I thrive as a pioneer in the sport and hope to inspire many other women to be able to act freely without worrying about how they will be judged.”

The photo accompanied the caption: “Heard the big man ‘The Gypsy King’ Tyson Fury was in Leeds today so he had to go and pay him a visit.
“What an atmosphere. So much charisma.
