Ebanie Bridges spent last weekend promoting Conor McGregor’s Forged Irish Stout at the Anthony Joshua vs Robert Helenius event.
The Aussie boxer was pictured with the Irish MMA superstar and with some very interesting product placement indeed. Some fans criticised her online with one saying, “A current female world champion turning up to an event as a t*** out promo girl, f**** sake, what a support.”
In a video with Boxing King Media she has hit back at the critics.
The Blonde bomber said,
“They can think whatever they want.The people that are saying that don’t know anything about who we are and what we do and why we do it. They don’t know anything, because they’re not celebrities, they’re not famous.
“WE BROKE THE INTERNET” @EbanieBridges

“They don’t have brands, they don’t have things that they’re doing so they can say whatever they want but in the end, what they’re doing is exactly what we want them to do – talk about us.”
She added: “It doesn’t matter if you hate us or love us, we’re getting talked about and that’s where the money is. To say a world champion can’t do both or that I can’t be a model or pretty or I can’t show off my body and I can’t do that. Why not? Why not?
“Do I have to walk around covering up my body and be a stereotype? What’s the image I’m supposed to be as a world champion? What, Katie Taylor? I’m not f****** Katie Taylor, I’m Ebanie Bridges, so I’m gonna do me.
