Ebanie Bridges Returns In Leeds
The next stage in the career of Ebanie Bridges will take place on September 4th in Leeds on the big Lara/Warrington show.
For Josh Warrington, the hometown hero, the mission will be revenge, redemption and it will undoubtedly be a night where another defeat will signal the end of his career. It could be a night of shattered dreams, and 20,000 fans could be looking back and reminiscing about what has gone before and not looking forward to what lies ahead.
But win or lose in the main event, the Leeds faithful, a passionate vocal crowd, could have a new adopted fighter to get behind.
Bridges returns on the big outdoor show against the tough French fighter Mailys Gangloff.
Gangloff will come with ambition, she pushed Elllie Scotney on her last excursion to British soil, and has since won a French title. Gangloff will more than serve her purpose.
Bridges 34, made her name through those desperate early months of last year. She saw a gap in the market, and even those who don’t approve of her methods, should applaud, appreciate and learn from what she has achieved.
Shannon Courtenay was expected to dispose of her quickly when they met earlier this year. But Bridges exceeded expectations, and when she stopped a fully prepared Bec Connolly a few weeks ago, even her harshest critics had to acknowledge that the Australian is a real fighter and not just the lingerie model many wanted to label her as.
The Australian isn’t satisfied with just being on the big stage, Bridges is seeking far more than appreciation from the masses. She brings entertainment to the party, but world titles are the aim.
Courtenay has shown little interest in a rematch, but money dictates many things, the rematch is the money fight for both. If Bridges keeps winning, the rematch is inevitable.
