Boxing bombshell Ebanie Bridges caused a stir yet again at the weigh-in for her fight with Mailys Gangloff, with promotor Eddie Hearn admitting he had to look elsewhere as she stripped down to her skimpy lingerie.

Bridges, also known as the Blonde Bomber, set pulses racing before her last contest against Bec Connolly on August 7, forcing Hearn to divert his eyes as she as hit the scales in leopard-print underwear.

And ahead of her hotly-anticipated fight with Gangloff in Leeds, the 34-year-old Aussie bruiser put Hearn in a compromising position once again.

In front of excited fans at New Dock Hall, Bridges, clutching a Leeds United scarf above her head, stripped down to her pink lingerie when stepping onto the scales.

It didn't quite provoke the same hilarious reaction from Hearn as last time, but the promoter still couldn't bring himself to look at the scantily-clad Bridges as she performed her trademark weigh-in trick.

Speaking to Official Behind The Gloves, Hearn blushed as he revealed his strategy for dealing with Bridges' raunchy weigh-in.

"So the best way to go about it is just to look somewhere else.

"Ebonie knows what she's doing. She's a tremendous fighter.

"Obviously a lot of people want to see her weigh-in as well.

"It is what it is, but for me, it's not about keeping composure, it's about making sure the camera doesn't catch me at a particular time where I might be looking somewhere that looks like I'm looking somewhere else.
