Search for a New Opponent
Australian boxer Ebanie Bridges is on the hunt for a new opponent after her highly anticipated "Battle of the Boobs" fight was cancelled just days before the scheduled bout. The 37-year-old, nicknamed the Blonde Bomber, was set to face off against fellow Australian Avril Mathie in her first fight of 2023 next Saturday. However, Mathie has been forced to pull out due to an injury, leaving Bridges in need of a replacement.
Highly Anticipated Showdown
The "Battle of the Boobs" was generating significant buzz, with both fighters planning to strip down to their underwear for the weigh-in, which Bridges claimed would "break the internet." The fight was scheduled to take place on the undercard of Regis Prograis vs Devin Haney in San Francisco.
Race Against Time
Bridges now faces a race against time to find a suitable replacement opponent who can step in on short notice. The cancellation of the bout is a major disappointment for Bridges, who was looking forward to defending her IBF bantamweight title. She is believed to be gutted that her friend, a swimwear model, won't be able to compete.
Promoting the Fight
Bridges had already been hyping up the contest, confidently stating that her "boobs are better" than Mathie's. She also predicted that the weigh-in would attract a lot of attention, not just from boxing fans but also from people interested in seeing the two "OnlyFans models" showcase their boxing skills.
Champion on the Rise
Since winning the IBF bantamweight title in March 2022, Bridges has only defended it once. Despite breaking her right hand before the fight, she managed to secure a victory through an eighth-round TKO against Shannon O'Connell. Bridges underwent surgery to repair her hand after the fight. During her absence from the ring, she has continued to grow her social media following and remains a beloved figure among fans.
Overall, the cancellation of the "Battle of the Boobs" is a setback for Bridges, who was eager to get back in the ring and defend her title. However, fans will have to wait a little longer to see her in action as she works to secure a new opponent for her next fight.
