AJ Bunker targets fight with OnlyFans star Astrid Wett ahead of ring return

AJ Bunker is eyeing a social media showdown with OnlyFans star Astrid Wett if the pair win their respective fights next weekend.

The Love Island star was defeated by Elle Brooke earlier this year after stepping in as a late replacement for Wett who pulled out from the event amid concerns for her safety. Bunker will next take on Playboy model Carla Howe next Saturday in Sheffield as part of the second instalment of DAZN's Misfits Boxing series.

Wett will also compete on the card against bitter rival Keeley Colbran, with the winner set to be in line to take on Bunker next. And the 28-year-old would much rather Wett prevail so she can take on the challenge of the OnlyFans star.

"I have always said whoever wins out of Astrid and Keeley and whoever is the stronger fighter I want to fight," Bunker revealed to Mirror Fighting when discussing plans beyond her upcoming bout. "I feel bad if it is Keeley because she is only quite young as in like 19 so I would feel quite bad. But if she is capable of beating Astrid she is clearly a good fighter.

"So I will go against Astrid or Keeley I will go against the winner definitely for sure. I don't have beef with them, I just want to continue fighting and that would likely be the person who is next to fight I guess. I will know who is the stronger of the two of them after this so yeah bring it on."

Wett would likely be considered the favourite having spent longer in training for her doomed fight with Brooke. Despite stepping in at short notice, Bunker did not disgrace herself when falling in a points defeat by her rival and will this time be more prepared to make her return.

Her clash with Howe will likely be the biggest opportunity of Bunker's short career so far, and could see her fight on the DAZN platform again in the future. Bunker believes she is capable of putting in a much-improved display having been trained by a boxing coach for her upcoming clash.

"I am honestly so excited I can't wait," she continued. "It is huge and now I am fighting in a huge arena on DAZN. I feel so grateful for the opportunity. The difference is this time round I have an actual coach in my corner and I am fighting a southpaw this time around so it will be trying to find a new style of fighting. But I am enjoying it and I already feel stronger for this one."
