Love Islander AJ Bunker to fight OnlyFans star Elle Brooke in grudge match

Elle Brooke will fight former Love Island contestant AJ Bunker after she stepped in to take on the OnlyFans star at two weeks' notice.

Brooke was scheduled to fight fellow content creator Astrid Wett at a Kingpyn boxing event on July 16, but Wett withdrew from the fight over concerns for her safety. She cited Brooke bringing out a coffin with a doll depicting her at a press conference for the fight as one of the main reasons she pulled out of the fight.

Bunker, who was dumped from Love Island last year after 23 days in the villa, has no fighting experience but was preparing to compete at a Celeb MMA event last month before it was postponed. Brooke challenged Bunker to fight her, stating: "AJ Bunker, on the 16th of July I'm going to knock you out quicker than you got kicked out of Love Island you old hag. Kingpyn, make the fight."

The 24-year-old has now got her wish as Bunker has accepted the fight and the pair will meet at The O2 Indigo next Saturday. Brooke said that promoting the fight will be difficult because of Bunker's "dry" personality but admits her new opponent has better skills in the ring than Wett.

"I don't watch Love Island but I don't think she's managed to stay relevant after she came off of it," Brooke told Mirror Fighting . "It's just someone to take the fight and I thought we could make it as exciting as possible but she's so dry and unaggressive that it makes it a little bit difficult [to promote].

"In my opinion she actually looks better at boxing than Astrid ever did, so hopefully for people watching it will hopefully be a lot better. She definitely looks like she has better combinations and is sharper on the pads. She wouldn't be my number one choice, but nobody else stood up to fight me so it was clutching at straws."

Brooke admitted that preparing for the fight whilst juggling her OnlyFans and TikTok ventures has been extremely difficult, even taking effect on relationships with her friends. "It's been really hard, my schedule is crazy. I've got no time for myself and it's really affecting my relationships with friends because I don't have time to see people. It's taking a lot of sacrifice. It's hard balancing everything but it is doable," she added.
