Ebanie Bridges teases Eddie Hearn after he ignored her leopard thong weigh-in

Don’t miss a thing by getting the Daily Star’s biggest headlines straight to your inbox!

Since making her debut on British soil earlier this year, Ebanie Bridges has captured the attention of UK fight fans in impressive fashion.

While the Blonde Bomber performed valiantly against Shannon Courtenay earlier this year, she remains best known for her racy weigh-in outfits and the Aussie left little to the imagination yet again when she took to the scales yesterday.

Upon arriving at the weigh-in, Bridges stripped into some leopard print underwear that clearly caught some onlookers by surprise.

However, one man who refused to be caught off guard was promoter Eddie Hearn, who averted his eyes as soon as Bridges arrived at the scales.

The Matchroom Sport chairman glued his eyes to the ceiling and looked off into the distance, occasionally grinning at the fans gathered to watch the weigh-ins.

Hilarious snaps from the weigh-in quickly went viral on social media and Bridges took to Instagram to poke fun at Hearn, who is married with two children.

The Blonde Bomber said: “Poor Eddie, he just being respectful.”

Bridges continued to mock Hearn a few hours later: “Nice work Edward,” the Aussie wrote.

“You missed out on a great weigh in.”

Do you think Ebanie Bridges will defeat Bec Connolly when they face off this evening? Let us know in the comments section below.

Bridges is set to face Bec Connolly on the undercard of Matchroom Boxing’s Fight Camp Week 2 event.

Connolly is a 3-9 veteran in Women’s boxing and is without a win in 3 contests.

Despite Lady Luck’s slightly underwhelming record, in a recent interview with the Mirror, Bridges predicted the bout could be a close one and that she was prepared for a firefight.

“Bec always comes out strong and fast, and I’m a bit similar,” said Bridges.

“I feel like it’s going to be a heated fight because we both like to get into a scrap, but I’m not going to get drawn into a firefight if I can just box her.

“I’m definitely going for the stoppage, and she’s not somebody who really gets stopped, particularly at 118 lbs which would be the lighter side.

“It would make a big impact because girls aren’t stopping her and they’re often fighting her without much of a camp at all, so I’m excited to test myself against her with proper preparation.”

Ebanie Bridges is set to return to the ring tonight against Britain’s Bec Connolly.

The bout will take place on the undercard of Matchroom Boxing’s Fight Camp Week 2 event, held at the former home of the Hearn family.

The card will be headlined by a clash between Kid Galahad and Jazza Dickens for the IBF world featherweight title.

The undercard will feature Fabio Wardley vs Nick Webb, Alen Babic vs Mark Bennett, and the return of Aqib Fiaz.
