PROFESSIONAL BOXER Ebanie Bridges held up a Leeds scarf at the weigh-in for her Headingley fight with Mailys Gangloff.
The ‘Blonde Bomber’ showed her love for Marcelo Bielsa’s team while in her underwear – a move that’s gone down well with those in West Yorkshire.

The Australian fighter, 34, paraded around the stage holding up a Leeds scarf and tweeted the pictures after the game.
Bridges isn’t believed to be a Leeds supporter but captioned the photos: “LEEDS LEEDS LEEDS #MOT #ALAW #Blonde Bomber.”
‘MOT’ is an acronym of the famous Leeds song ‘Marching On Together’ and ‘ALAW’ stands for ‘All Leeds, Aren’t We?’
Following her weigh-in antics, Bridges’ is likely to receive a rousing reception from the Leeds crowd when she meets Gangloff, 25.
The fighters are on the undercard of Josh Warrington’s huge rematch against Mauricio Lara at Headingley Stadium on Saturday night.
Leeds lad Warrington lost to Lara at London’s Wembley Arena in February and will be keen to redeem himself in front of his home crowd.

Bridges, meanwhile, takes on Gangloff just a MONTH after defeating British rival Bec Connolly at Eddie Hearn’s fight camp.
The Blonde Bomber turned professional in February 2019 and has gone on to make a promising start to her career, winning six of her seven fights.
Her only defeat came in a bantamweight world title fight against Shannon Courtenay, losing by unanimous decision to the British star.
Gangloff has a similar record to Bridges, winning five of her seven bouts to date – and will be hoping to avoid a third defeat in Leeds.
Bridges is known for wearing lingerie at weigh-ins, doing so for her recent fights against Courtenay and Connolly.
