The buxom blonde, 35, said on Tuesday her critics ‘can’t get past the boobs’ and are often shocked by her fighting ability.

‘Was completely wrong about Ebanie Bridges, far better than I thought she was,’ one boxing fan tweeted after Bridges’ victory. 

Bridges replied: ‘You must have been distracted by my boobs and couldn’t see the skill.

‘Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Lots of haters out there can’t get past the boobs… Glad you can see you were wrong.’
