Elle Brooke sets sights on becoming "female Jake Paul" ahead of boxing debut

OnlyFans star Elle Brooke has laid out her ambition to become the female version of Jake Paul ahead of her boxing debut against AJ Bunker.

Brooke, who has huge followings on TikTok and OnlyFans, fights former Love Island contestant Bunker at a Kingpyn boxing event next Saturday after her original opponent Astrid Wett withdrew from their fight. Bunker has been training for a fight of her own as she was supposed to compete at a Celeb MMA event last month before it was postponed to a later date.

The 24-year-old has sparred with Ebanie Bridges and been coached by Mark Tibbs ahead of her upcoming fight. Brooke told Mirror FIghting about her conversations with the bantamweight world champion Bridges and how Tibbs has "put his reputation" on the line by taking her under his wing. "I always tell her my ambitions," Brooke said of Bridges. "I texted her saying ‘I really want to be the female Jake Paul haha’ and she said ‘don’t laugh because anything is possible’ it made me melt, it really did.

"He’s a legendary boxing trainer and because he’s putting his reputation against me," she added of Bridges. "I had to be somewhat trainable for him to start training me in the first place. I had always been like ‘boxing is well hard’, looking back on it I don’t say it as much now but I think I underestimated how intense the sport was going to be."

Brooke admitted that she underestimated how hard boxing was before her first training session. The OnlyFans star intended for her fight with Bunker to be a one-off, but since taking up the sport she wants to have more fights in the future after her debut.

"When you’re watching professionals, they don’t look as knackered as they’re feeling. They make it look so easy and it’s not. As my fitness has improved it’s gotten a lot easier. In my head beforehand I thought ‘you’re just using your arms’ but it’s a whole body workout," Brooke continued.

"It’s a lot of work and I underestimated the work that goes into it. Now watching boxing, I’m going to go to the fights and it’s more interesting to watch because I know the work that goes into it. Mark has chucked me in the deep end and I’ve fallen in love with the lifestyle. It gives me purpose everyday and it’s nice expanding into sport. Hopefully after this one I’ll have many fights to come, so I’m definitely keen to keep fighting after this one."
