Tai Emery: Boxer who flashed her breasts after bout says she'll do something ‘even stupider’ next time
PATTAYA, THAILAND: Bare-knuckle fighter Tai Emery, 35, made headlines a few weeks ago by flashing her breasts after a spectacular knockout win. The fighter's OnlyFans platform exploded after the viral celebration, and Emery says her life has changed ever since. However, she has no regrets, as the Aussie is vowing to do something ‘even dumber’ in her next fight.
It is hardly surprising Emery is without regrets, considering the stunt made her a lot of money on OnlyFans. She reported that her $400 a week earnings from the platform have since skyrocketed to $25,000 a month, or $300,000 a year, if she keeps on track.
In the now infamous contest, Emery knocked out Roong-Aroon Khunchai with an uppercut and hook combination and then proceeded near the ropes to flash her breasts to the enemy in celebration.
Emery became a viral sensation overnight and saw her OnlyFans and social media accounts explode after that stunt. She told TMZ Sports, "Holy moly Instagram, 100k followers from like 45, my OnlyFans went from maybe 40 to 2,500, something like that."
Emery, who started her subscription-based service to support herself financially during the coronavirus pandemic, charges $10 per month on OnlyFans.
She also posted the video on Instagram, with the caption, "If you don’t know, now you know … “Tai Emery” Cheers heaps to everyone that has ever given me a meal, place to sleep, place to train, coached me, or had belief in me. It never went to waste and I always could make the energy ten fold. I’m so proud of this goal!"
"I had an OnlyFans, that was through Covid and actually helped me survive. I actually lived in the jungle in Thailand and that's where I learned how to kick and punch. So I used my OnlyFans money to eventually be able to save up and live, a little bit different from a ladle and bucket of water," she told TMZ Sports.
"It's time to do what I want. I've earned it," Emery told MMA Junkie. "So, if I want to flash my tits again, folks, I'll do what I want. One hundred percent I'm probably going to do something even stupider," she added.
Emery had won the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship bout in Thailand and has now signed a four-bout deal with them.
