- It is believed that Ebanie Bridges’ fight has been stopped
- She is looking for a new opponent
- Bridges was set to face Avril Mathie
Ebanie Bridges reportedly has ten days to find a new opponent after her ‘Battle of the Boobs’ was canceled.
The Blonde Bomber, 37, is scheduled to take on Avril Mathie on December 9, with the fight getting the attention-grabbing nickname due to both women’s tendency to strip down to their underwear for the pre-fight weigh-ins.
The pair are scheduled to fight on the undercard of Regis Prograis versus Devin Haney in San Francisco, America, but Mail Sport understands the fight has been called off after Mathie, 36, pulled out due to injury.
Matchroom is expected to announce a new opponent soon.
Bridges is said to be “presumably disappointed that her friend can’t compete in a swimsuit.”

She had previously expressed her excitement at the prospect of fighting Mathie and the huge interest it would generate.
“The weigh-in will break the internet,” she said before her opponent withdrew.
“It will also attract a lot of viewers outside of boxing as people will be interested to see if these two ‘OnlyFans models’ can box.”
Bridges hasn’t fought this year after injuring her hand in her last fight, but has been busy with work outside the ring. She teamed up with Conor McGregor earlier this year to promote his Forged Irish Stout, claiming the UFC superstar used her for influence.
“He’s basically using me for power,” she said. ‘He sponsors me to draw attention to his brand. That’s what sponsors do.
“We met at the AJ fight and I was wearing his brand there because he’s using me to get his brand out there. Otherwise he would be wearing a solid shirt.
“But we work together because he knows – me and him – that people are going to talk about his brand.

“It’s not that I need him, but we both help each other, we’re both an asset to each other’s brands, we help build each other up, it’s not one-sided.
“They contacted me, it wasn’t me who was after them.”
Bridges has gained a huge following on social media since leaving Australia for the UK and has made a name for herself with her OnlyFans account and eye-catching outfits.
She said: ‘Obviously the fact that I’m attached to one of the greatest sports people in the world, one of the most recognizable names in the world, being attached to that is obviously going to increase my fame, it’s going to get me more fans, it’s going to get more subscriptions to my OnlyFans.
‘More followers on my Instagram and ultimately more money. And in turn, we will both grow from it. It’s positive in many ways. But I also get more hate.”
