EBANIE BRIDGES has revealed she broke her hand in the lead-up to her knockout win over Shannon O'Connell.

The all-Australian world title bout took place in Leeds on Saturday night following a lengthy, bad-blooded build-up.



And Bridges, 36, defended her belt by savagely stopping O'Connell, 39, in the eighth round of their IBF bantamweight contest.

Now the champion has shared an image of the swollen right hand that she injured during training camp for the bout.

Alongside the picture, she said: "Booked in for surgery on my hand this Friday.

"A lot of my camp was done with one hand. A lot of my sparring only using my left hand.

"But there was no way I was pulling out of that fight cos I knew I could batter her with one hand if needed and I wanted to 🤣.

"But now time to sort this."

She then later added: "I was like a pitbull that got off its leash… I wanted to maul her 😤. Don't f*** with me 😈.

"They all get fooled by the smiles, banter and lingerie in the lead up. On this day – @shotgunshannon1 learned off Miss Bridges 👩‍🏫."
