Boxer Ebanie Leeds promotes OnlyFans account in see-through lingerie ahead of fight with Shannon O'Connell
LEEDS, ENGLAND: Australian boxing star Ebanie Bridges has caused controversy once again after stripping down to just her underwear in preparation for her fight with Shannon O'Connell. Bridges was able to retain her IMF bantamweight world title after an eighth-round stoppage win against her nemesis and compatriot.
O'Connell called Bridges a "skanky stripper" and a "fat c***" in the lead-up to their match. Bridges emphatically rejected those criticisms by sporting an eye-catching outfit as she weighed herself the day before her important bout. At the weigh-in for her world title fight, Bridges arrived wearing a T-shirt with the OnlyFans logo on it. Then, when she took it off, she could be seen with another OnlyFans logo stuck to her stomach, as well as her username.

The Australian fighter from Leeds has made lingerie weigh-ins her signature, and she's gone one step further by revealing that she'll be providing unique content from her daily life on OnlyFans including behind-the-scenes training videos, professional lingerie photoshoots and personal content as reported by Marca.
"I was the first to weigh-in with lingerie and I received a hell of a lot of backlash and controversy," Bridges said. "But it paved the way for other women in the sport to have the confidence to do the same. I expect similar controversy with this, but I thrive off of being a pioneer in the sport and hope to inspire many other women to be able to act freely without concern over how they will be judged."

She made the decision to capitalize on her fandom because she has been receiving odd requests for a while. "You'd think normal people would want lingerie or something like that, but it's all feet and socks," she revealed. "I do get the random requests for the bathwater 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."
In a recent interview, O'Connell attributed to the way their rivalry has spiraled to Bridges, as per Daily Mail. "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."

O'Connell continued by saying that Bridges' antics on the scales set a poor example for young girls attempting to enter the sport. "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. She knows everything she’s doing. So for her to be acting dumb saying, ‘I’m just doing what everyone else is doing’. No she’s not – she knows what she’s about."
