Elle Brooke has been studying boxing legend Floyd Mayweather ahead of her ring debut this weekend.
The OnlyFans model is fighting former Love Island star AJ Bunker on Saturday, the fight is on the undercard of KingPyn’s O2 Indigo event.
Ahead of her fight, Brooke has enlisted the help of boxing coach Mark Tibbs, who was in Billy Joe Saunders’ corner last year in the fight against Canelo Alvarez. Brooke has also been watching tapes of boxing legends from the past.
She told SunSport: “George Foreman, Muhammad Ali, even Floyd Mayweather, Pacquiao. I’ve been watching them all. It can only improve your skills.”
Brooke also spoke about the experience of working with Tibbs and said that she has been sparring with world champion Ebanie Bridges.
She said: “The trainer I’m with, Mark Tibbs, he’s like an English boxing trainer legend. Mark Tibbs doesn’t train amateurs or beginners. He trains professionals.”
“I’m actually along camp and inside the same gym as the female bantamweight world champion Ebanie Bridges.”
“So I get to learn from the champion herself. She really breaks things down into baby steps for me.”
Brooke added: “And the best thing about Ebanie is that she’s the same body type as me, she’s 5’1, she’s stocky and she’s and I get to spar with her.”
Brooke, who is also a huge Manchester City fan has a special request for the Blues’ Portuguese defender Ruben Dias, she wants Dias to walk her out during the ring walk.
She said: “There was a video recently, a few days ago, of Ruben Dias doing pads on the beach. And I was like, ‘Damn, that’s ridiculously good looking.’ So Ruben Dias, if you wanna do my ring walk, you’re welcome!”
Brooke was originally scheduled to fight fellow OnlyFans model, Astrid Wett. But Wett pulled out due to fears over her safety. With just ten day’s notice, Bunker has stepped in to take the fight.
The main headline fight of the night will be between TikTok rivals Simple Simon and Ed Matthews, joining Brooke and Bunker on the undercard are Chef Dave vs Aaron Hunt, Ginty vs Kayrhys, Paddy Murphy vs Dave The Other Guy, Pully Arif vs Tommy Mulligan and Luke Bennett vs Dean LM.
