In honour of International Women’s Day, Ebanie Bridges shared a throwback photo of herself wearing her infamous see-through OnlyFans outfit to her most recent weigh-in.
Bridges’ most recent boxing match took place in Leeds’ First Direct Arena in October of last year, where she faced off against Shannon O’Connell. Prior to fight night, the Australian caught attention by posing in an OnlyFans t-shirt and then revealing her see-through undergarments.
The boxing star’s preferred t-shirt served as a way to announce her registration for the Adult-only website OnlyFans, where she has amassed over 131,000 likes since joining.
Four months on, Bridges’ iconic weigh-in outfit has resurfaced, after she posted the throwback video to her 730,000 followers on Instagram to celebrate International Women’s Day.
On top of the video, the Australian star was heard giving an emotional speech, defending the right for women to express themselves in any way they choose. On her outfit and OnlyFans sign-up, Bridges said, “I know I got a lot of stick for it.
“But I just never gave up and stayed true to myself, because I think it is an important message for everyone to stay true to yourself. You know don’t let other people tell you who you should be, what you should do. Especially as women, we’ve been told how we should look, what we should do.

“What we can and can’t do, what we can and can’t say for years. It is not the 1920s, it is not the 1950s, it is 2023 now and it is about time that women were able to express themselves, and them as an individual in a way that they want without being judged, and without being told that they can’t.”
The IBF female bantamweight champion received plenty of support and backing from her followers in the comments section of the post. Clearly in agreement with Bridges, one fan – @siobhanspice – wrote: “Wise words!!!” Whilst @chrisochs added: “Powerful, strong woman!!”
