And Bridges, 36, defended her belt by savagely stopping O’Connell, 39, in the eighth round of their IBF bantamweight contest.

Now the champion has shared an image of the swollen right hand that she injured during training camp for the bout.

Alongside the picture, she said: “Booked in for surgery on my hand this Friday.

“A lot of my camp was done with one hand. A lot of my sparring only using my left hand.

“But there was no way I was pulling out of that fight cos I knew I could batter her with one hand if needed and I wanted to .

“But now time to sort this.”

She then later added: “I was like a pitbull that got off its leash… I wanted to maul her . Don’t f*** with me .

“They all get fooled by the smiles, banter and lingerie in the lead up. On this day – @shotgunshannon1 learned off Miss Bridges .”


Bridges now boasts a professional record of nine victories and one defeat.

That loss came by unanimous decision to Shannon Courtenay in April 2021.

The pair have now been linked with a rematch after Courtenay returned to the ring for the first time in 14 months on the same card as Bridges, clinching a points win over Gemma Ruegg.
