Elle Brooke has been backed to become a ‘pro boxer’ by close friend and training partner Ebanie Bridges.
The OnlyFans model recently teamed up with Dillian Whyte‘s former coach Mark Tibbs before she made her boxing debut against Love Island star AJ Bunker back in July.
Brooke was set to face Astrid Wett but her bitter rival pulled out a week before the event due to safety concerns.
She won the fight via unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring the contest 40-36 in her favor.
And women’s IBF bantamweight champion Bridges, who is also trained by Tibbs herself, says that she fully “dedicated” herself to learning the craft.

What has Ebanie Bridges said about Elle Brooke?
“My friend Elle Brooke, she just fought, and she’s a TikToker and on OnlyFans, but she’s not a boxer right,” she said during an appearance on The BoredMan Podcast via The Daily Star.
“She came into the gym to have this fight, and I’m telling you right now, obviously at first I was like, f*** she’s everything I’ve been trying to prove I’m not; just a big f***ing gimmick, blonde, big t**s, whatever.
“When she came into the gym she was s***, she’d never thrown a punch before. But she was so determined, and so dedicated to her goal to get into that ring and fight in four months and do well, she was grafting like us, like world champions.”

Ebanie Bridges backs ‘novice’ Elle Brooke to turn professional in the future
In fact Bridges was so impressed by Brooke’s attitude that she thinks that she has got what it takes to go all the way.
“I think if she wasn’t Elle Brooke, and she was just like a normal person, she could go into amateurs and she would do really well, and she could have a proper career, she’s only 24,” she added.
“But, because she’s Elle Brooke she can’t really do that, so her only option is really to do these YouTube fights and all these TikTok fights for now.
“But there might come a time when she’s had enough of them where she can actually go ‘okay I’m going to turn proper pro’ and maybe have some pro fights. She’s so disciplined and dedicated to it, and she’s actually doing really well.
“She’s a little novice, but these are just normal people, they’re novices, and people are giving them s*** saying they can’t box. I’m like, they’re not supposed to box yet… Because of the popularity of these guys, we’re seeing them at the beginning of their journey.”
