Start time and ring walk for Ebanie Bridges's world title fight
At the First Direct Arena in Leeds, Australia, bantamweight world champion Bridges finally gets to defend her title against fellow Australian Shannon O'Connell.
Tonight, Ebanie Bridges is back in action in Leeds, the city she now calls home. She is facing fellow Australian Shannon O'Connell in a grudge match.
The Blonde Bomber won the bantamweight world title back in March, but he hasn't been able to defend it until now, even though he has tried many times to fight on other Matchroom cards. And O'Connell, who doesn't like how the champion acts in and out of the ring, will be a tough test for her.
Bridges is one of the most talked-about boxers on this side of the pond. She is known for her hard-hitting, aggressive style in the ring as well as her provocative outfits at weigh-ins. And fans are on her side again for this match against O'Connell, who is the perfect match for how she acts in front of the camera.
Here's everything you should know about the fight tonight...
What time is the fight between Ebanie Bridges?
On Saturday, December 10 in the UK, the fights will take place at the First Direct Arena in Leeds. The preliminary card is set to start at 1:30pm. The main card will start at 9 p.m., after the World Cup quarterfinal between England and France has been shown in the arena. There will be three fights on the main card.
In the second of these three fights, Bridges takes part. Interestingly, the time she walks will depend on how the football game in Qatar turns out, since extra time and penalties could be a big problem. If the game ends in regular time, Bridges will probably be there between 9:45 and 9:50.
