Bridges then explained how she deals with “jealous” trolls.

She added: “I ignore it (troll messages). Anyone who is successful, they’re going to get the jealousy, the hate, people will try to drag you down.

“That’s just normal. The people talking s***, they don’t know me, so why should I sit there and get emotional and bothered by someone who has never met me?

“I’m very secure within myself. I’ve been through hell and back in my life and I’m very secure, I love who I am.”

Bridges turned into a boxing pro in 2019 and won each of her first five fights, and is currently on a three-bout win streak.

In 2020, the “Blonder Bomber” admitted to having indulged certain fan requests in the pursuit of getting some extra income such as selling dirty training socks.

In a previous interview with talkSPORT, she said: “Give me your money, that’s my response! You want my stuff, then you’ve got to give me your money. There’s plenty of weird people out there.

“I haven’t sold my bath water, but I’ve been getting so many weird requests I was thinking, should I go buy some jars? I’ve done the socks and my feet because it’s a laugh and harmless.

“I thought it was funny and they ended up paying, so now any requests that come through, I’m just like here is my PayPal.

“You’d think normal people would want lingerie or something like that, but it’s all feet and socks. I do get the random requests for the bath water and other weird things which I won’t go into now.

“It’s all side money at the end of the day, if they want to pay then it’s up to them. I don’t care really, as long as I’m putting food on my table and the bills are being paid, I’m happy.”

Bridges has previously been pictured alongside OnlyFans star Elle Brooke, but has also dismissed fan requests for her to copy a celebration of bare-knuckle boxer Tai Emery.

There are many combinations of punches. These are combinations of punches that work together to achieve a specific goal. A combination may have multiple parts. For example, a left hook followed by a right cross will cause damage to the opponent’s jaw.

Guard Techniques

A boxer uses his body to protect himself against attacks. He does this using his legs and arms, elbows as well as hands, knees and feet.

Legs

Boxers must use their legs to defend themselves against kicks. After receiving a kick, he will raise his leg and move away from the attacker. To avoid being kicked on the sides, he bends at his knees when the attacker strikes from the front. However, if the attack comes from behind, he stands up straight and blocks the kick with his foot.

Elbows

Hands

Boxers use their hands to block incoming blows. They raise their fists high above their heads and point them in the direction of an attack. They then touch the attackers fist.

Knees

A boxer should bend his knees in order to absorb any blows to his stomach, abdomen, chest or stomach. Knee strikes are often used for defense purposes.

Feet

A boxer should not be afraid to respond to an attack. This will help him gain distance from his opponent. Additionally, boxers need to maintain their balance when they counter-attack.

Combinations
