World boxing champion and blonde beauty Ebanie Bridges says she would love to fight at Elland Road, the home of her beloved Leeds United.
Bantamweight Bridges returns for her third Leeds fight on December 10 at the First Direct Arena facing Shannon O'Connell on the undercard of hometown hero Josh Warrington. Australian boxer Bridges, who has a growing fanbase across the UK and in the city, has always made her wish known to box at the home of the Lily Whites.
The 36-year-old nicknamed the Blonde Bomber encourages interaction with her 547,000 followers on Instagram. She was asked by one fan: 'Do you think you will ever fight at Elland Road?'

In reply Bridges posted a video stating: "I would absolutely love to fight at Elland Road. Anything is possible and everything is possible, so yeah, hopefully." Also on her Instagram post was the phrase #MOT (moment of truth) along with yellow and blue hearts, the colours of Leeds United.
The Sydney raised fighter arrived in the UK last year to pursue her boxing career and won the IBF bantamweight title against María Cecilia Román in March during her seconds Leeds bout.
"Whenever anybody ever asks me 'if I could fight anywhere in the world where would it be?' It would be Leeds," said Bridges in an ITU Boxing video.
"Obviously I was thinking more like Elland Road. I have always been into football and played football when I was younger. When I played football we had a lot of Australian players in Leeds, (Mark) Viduka and (Harry) Kewell and all that. Leeds was always close to my heart as a football fan.
"As I started interacting with the British fans I thought I needed to get back into football and Leeds was perfect because Leeds just got into the Premier League and have Raphinha who is Brazilian and I've got a big affiliation with Brazil. Leeds was just a fit, I just love the Leeds community and fans. I just think I suit them and they suit me."
