Ebanie Bridges sends message to Elle Brooke ahead of her boxing debut

Ebanie Bridges has backed training partner Elle Brooke to shine on her boxing debut tonight.

Brooke, who has built her profile on subscription service OnlyFans and on TikTok, will face former Love Island star AJ Bunker in her maiden bout at the Indigo O2. She has been training at The Origin Gym with renowned coach Mark Tibbs who also works with Bridges.

The pair have worked alongside each other for several weeks and have developed a friendship since Brooke began developing her skills. Bridges has now sent her counterpart a good luck message on social media ahead of her debut, posting on Instagram : "Last training session for this little blondie @thedumbledong today before she makes her boxing debut!

"It’s been special watching her in the gym every day work her a** off (literally) and make the progression she has technically and mentally as a fighter. Super proud and excited to see her put it all together."

Brooke was initially planning to settle her rivalry with fellow OnlyFans star Astrid Wett when signing up to make her debut. However her rival opted to withdraw from the event over fears for her safety, after Brooke pulled a coffin stunt at the press conference to announce the clash.

The British star has been working alongside Bridges in training who recently became world champion by picking up the IBF belt in her ninth professional fight. Bridges has attracted huge interest from boxing fans on domestic shores after journeying over from Australia to heighten her career. Brooke has paid tribute to Bridges' influence on her preparations to step in the ring.

"Ebanie has been absolutely amazing with me," she told Mirror Fighting . "Even though she’s a world champion she really takes the time to help me. She doesn’t need to do that as she isn’t gaining anything. I’m so grateful for the amount of time and energy she puts into me.

"I’ve been sparring her and it’s absolute hell, it’s really hard work. How quick she moves as well. It’s not going to be easy as she’s obviously a world champion, but if you’re sparring people who are better than you, then hopefully the fight will be a walk in the park. Sometimes I compare myself to her but she’s a world champion and I’ve been training for like two months."

Celebrity boxing has continued to grow in recent months since the trend began with the likes of YouTube stars Jake Paul and KSI. Brooke is hoping to become the female version of Paul by making a significant impact on the sport. "I always tell her [Bridges] my ambitions," Brooke continued. "I texted her saying ‘I really want to be the female Jake Paul haha’ and she said ‘don’t laugh because anything is possible’. I aspire to be like her because she is exactly what I want to be in a boxer."
