Ebanie Bridges "deformed" after boxing victory six weeks ago but vows to recover

Ebanie Bridges has not yet been able to throw a punch after her land was left "deformed" during her victory over Mailys Gangloff at the start of September.

The Blonde Bomber won by decision at Headingley Rugby Stadium following eight rounds of action to take her professional record to seven wins from eight fights, three by the way of knock-out.

The Aussie pro has built up an army of online followers since her WBA female bantamweight title bout against Shannon Courtenay back in April, and tends to steal the show at pre-fight weigh-ins.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has even been forced to look away from the fighter thanks to her love of lingerie, but her return to the ring looks to be a long way off.

Bridges has kept fans updated following her latest victory – during which her right hand became dramatically swollen despite there being no brakes or fractures.

Having taken some time out of training, and also signed up to take part in SAS Australia with Ant Middleton, Bridges was asked in a question and answer session about her hand.

After one fan asked: "How's the hand going, it looked horrendous, can't wait to see you in the ring again."

She replied: "It's been 6 weeks… and the majority of the pain has gone but it's still stiff and restricted and hand is a little deformed.

Adding: "Haven't yet punched with it to know if it can take impact tho. Another two weeks and I will give it a crack."

Before showing another snap which said: "Can almost make a tight fist."

After stripping down to her lingerie before her recent bout, she caused a stir with promoter Hearn looking as far as possible away from the 35-year-old.

He then told Behind The Gloves: "Anywhere the eyes look, there are cameras everywhere, do you know what I mean?


"So the best way to go about it is just to look somewhere else. Ebanie knows what she's doing. She's a tremendous fighter. Obviously a lot of people want to see her weigh-in as well.

"It is what it is, but for me, it's not about keeping composure, it's about making sure the camera doesn't catch me at a particular time where I might be looking somewhere that looks like I'm looking somewhere else.

"I'm respectful of that and I think I'll just find a spot at the back of the wall somewhere."
