Ebanie Bridges fumes "f*** you guys" in interview after becoming world champ

Ebanie Bridges won her first world title in Leeds on Saturday night, and the Blonde Bomber immediately dived into a passionate rant.

The Australian beat Argentinian Maria Cecilia Roman, who had held the belt since 2017, via unanimous decision. And after the bell Bridges told DAZN: "Can I f****** fight or not? F*** you guys who think I can't fight.

"I can f***ing fight. I can box, I can fight, and I can look hot on the scales so hopefully, I've proved a lot of doubters wrong. I feel proud of myself, and I feel extremely happy because it means everything I have sacrificed and all the work I've done has been worth it.

"This belt represents everything; all the heartbreaks, the sacrifice and all the training so I'm happy.

"She was a tough champion and she brought it so that meant I could do the stuff I love to do.

"I love that kind of fight. I know it's not the fight we're supposed to have but I love those kind of fights because it's good for the fans. I'm about entertaining and for me, that was so fun. It was tough, she was the champion and she brought it and that was awesome."

Saturday evening was Bridges' second attempt at capturing a world title since her unanimous defeat to Shannon Courtenay last March.

The Blonde Bomber flew out of the blocks and landed some big hits early on her opponent – setting the tone for the rest of the bout.

Roman had hoped to gas Bridges out, but a late flurry from the Argentine wasn't enough to retain her world title.
