‘I did have a pub fight where I was sitting with my friends. These big Islander girls. Group of five of them. I’m like, “Can you move over a little bit? You keep knocking me when you’re talking,”‘ she told IFL TV’s Raw: The Fight Within podcast.
‘They were like, “Oh? We keep knocking you?” And started giving me s***.
‘I’m not a trouble starter, it takes a lot. My friend is getting wound up. They kept going on and my friend said she had my back so I took my watch off, ready.
‘I’ve gone bang with all my might in this girl’s face.
‘I don’t even know what happened, I was sitting down and it felt like they were hammer hitting, slapping my head.
Bridges says she was covered in blood and bite marks when she left the pub after the fight
‘I couldn’t do anything because I had one arm covering my face and I’m sitting down. I felt her mouth, so I put my fingers in her mouth, and I ripped her whole mouth open with a big fish hook.
‘There was blood everywhere, it was nuts. I got up and I had teeth bite marks on me and everything and we ran outside of the club.
‘It was crazy, I remember I went down to the restaurant with my hair all hanging out, blood all over my hands and bite marks all over me.
‘I remember cleaning myself up and my friend was like ‘where are you? What did you do to that girl?’
‘Her boyfriend comes down and goes ‘what did you do to her?’. She was sitting there with blood p***ing out of her mouth, because I must have ripped her inner gum open.
Bridges, who has been nicknamed the Blonde Bomber, hails from Toongabbie in Sydney’s West. She’s trained in Karate, kickboxing and Muay Thai. She is now based in the UK.
‘That was fun. I mean there’s more, I push-kicked a girl, I elbowed a girl, but mind you, they all f***ing started with me.’
Known as ‘The Blonde Bomber’, Bridges has made huge waves in the UK since relocating there – winning swathes of fans with her disarming sense of humour, no-nonsense boxing style and weigh-in lingerie outfits.
The former maths teacher captured the IBF Bantamweight World Title in just her ninth professional fight. She is aiming to be the undisputed champion of her division by 2024.
