Love Islander brands OnlyFans star Elle Brooke "scared" after "begging" for fight

Former Love Islander AJ Bunker has accused Elle Brooke, who is without an opponent for her boxing debut, of being scared to fight her.

Brooke, who has over 1.8million followers on TikTok, was scheduled to fight fellow content creator Astrid Wett at a Kingpyn boxing event on July 16. Wett withdrew from the fight over concerns for her safety, after Brooke brought out a coffin with a doll depicting her at a press conference for the fight.

She has since been on the hunt for a replacement opponent and recently called out Bunker, who appeared on last year's series of Love Island. "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," Brooke said.

Brooke has been training with well-renowned coach Mark Tibbs in a bid to be ready for her July 16 fight. Bunker recently hosted a Q&A on Instagram in which she was quizzed by fans over a fight with Brooke, with one asking why the matchup hasn't been booked.

"According to Elle it's because I'm not relevant enough for her but I personally feel like it's just an excuse," Bunker replied. "The girl's been begging for a fight, it's been all over TikTok her begging for an opponent. So what is her excuse?

Replying to a fan who said Brooke was "scared" to fight her, Bunker said: "To be honest, that's what it looks like to me. She's been begging for an opponent and I'm coming in on two weeks notice as well guys. She's been training since April, it's an easy fight for her and she still won't take it."

Bunker was scheduled to fight Playboy model Carla Howe on June 24 at Celeb MMA before the event was postponed. It's unclear if the card will be rescheduled, but Bunker still wants to fight Howe after the pair got physical at their face-off for the fight. "I definitely still want to fight Carla, I'm just waiting for a rescheduled date from Celeb MMA. We all saw the drama that came from that so I definitely want it to happens so I'm just waiting on that date," she added.

The July 16 event will be headlined by a fight between Ed Matthews and Simple Simon, both of whom have big followings on TikTok. Brooke is still continuing her training as she hopes to book a replacement on the card, which takes places at the O2 Indigo.
