The Blonde Bomber took a break from her busy schedule to attend the Tuesday afternoon session at the World Snooker Championship, where he met Matchroom founder Barry Hearn. The elder Hearn signed a copy of his newly released autobiography for Bridges, who took the opportunity to get a couple of cheeky photos with the legendary promoter.
The duo posed together for two photos, including one of Hearn looking at Bridges as they shared a joke. Sassy boxing fans couldn’t help but notice that while Eddie has a hard time making eye contact with the Aussie during his raunchy weigh-ins, Barry seemed to have no problem.
One person wrote: “At least Barry looks at you ebz. Eddie is scared.” While someone else joked, “You had more clothes on seeing Barry than Eddie.”
Bridges captioned the photo with a cheeky comment to Eddie, who is usually by his side at weigh-ins: “@BarryHearn and I joke around. Now I know where @EddieHearn is coming from though I think Barry is the funniest Hearn.” .”
What’s your favorite outfit for Ebanie Bridges’ weigh-in? Let us know at comments section.
The New South Wales babe enjoys nothing more than making Eddie turn red at her weigh-in as she strips off her underwear in what has become one of her signature moves.
It first made Hearn blush before her fight against Bec Connolly last August. Bridges stepped onto the scale before the Matchroom Fight Camp fight wearing nothing more than a skimpy leopard-print thong and matching bra.
Boxing fans couldn’t help but notice that Hearn, who was standing behind her, was doing his best to avert her gaze. As Bridges approached, she made a great effort to look up at the ceiling and not at her barely clothed body.
She repeated the trick before her fight against Mailys Gangloff last September, forcing Hearn to address the situation in a later interview. “Wherever the eyes look, there are cameras everywhere, you know what I mean?” Hearn began.
“So the best way to do it is to look elsewhere. Ebanie knows what she’s doing. She’s a tremendous fighter. Obviously a lot of people want to see her weigh in as well.”
“It is what it is, but for me, it’s not about keeping my composure, it’s about making sure the camera doesn’t catch me at a particular moment where I might be looking somewhere that looks like I’m looking somewhere else. “. I’m respectful of that and I think I’ll find a spot on the back of the wall somewhere.”
Hearn likely expected more of the same before Bridges’ final weigh-in before her fight against Maria Cecilia Roman. And while Blonde Bomber stripped down once more to her lingerie, he had a surprise in store for the boss of Matchroom.
Walking onto the stage, Bridges quickly changed into his usual outfit that fight fans have come to know and love. But as he walked toward the scale, he walked right over to Hearn and handed him a pair of black sunglasses so he wouldn’t have to awkwardly look away like before.
Bridges turned to the camera with a cheeky smile painted on his face. Hearn accepted her glasses, but put them in her pocket as the Australian stepped onto her scale, again making sure to avoid looking at her.
