Ebanie Bridges pulls down her pants to reveal where flesh was taken from her hip to fix broken hand in now-deleted post | The Sun

EBANIE BRIDGES pulled down her pants to reveal where the flesh was taken from her hip to help fix her broken hand.

Bridges beat her fellow Aussie Shannon O'Connell in the eighth round of their derby to successfully defend her IBF title.


But the avid Leeds fan, 36, revealed she went into the bout with a broken hand, having suffered the injury in training.

OnlyFans-sponsored Bridges went under the knife and showed her hand being worked on.

In a follow-up post, the bantamweight revealed a chunk of her hip had to be taken out to fuse the joints in her hand.

She posted in the now-deleted tweet: “Where they took bone from my hip to fuse my joints…hurts more than the hand.”

Bridges' right hand was left brutally swollen after her stoppage victory over O'Connell, 39.

And she was left in tears after beating her local rival, retaining the title she won against Maria Cecilia Roman, 39, in March.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has now talked up a unification bout against WBA champ Nina Hughes, 40, who he recently signed.

Bridges' trainer Mark Tibbs said:  “This queen of Australia, she is the best fighter I have ever worked with, reason being she is such a professional.
