Speaking to Matchroom ahead of the fight, Courtenay says that she is not fazed by the ‘mind games’ that Bridges has supposedly been playing.
‘There was no hesitation from me when they offered me the fight,’ saidÂ Courtenay to Matchroom. ‘It’s a fight that has been brewing for a while. It’s a fight that the fans want to see. Stylistically it makes for a great fight as well. The fact that it’s for a World Title too makes it an even bigger fight.”
Shannon Courtenay on Ebanie Bridges
‘She’s a good fighter. She is going to come forward and be aggressive. Stylistically it’s going to be a very good fight. I’m going to win, I’m not going to say how I’m going to do it. I’m confident in myself and I’m confident in my ability” Shannon continued.
“It’s evident that I can dig hard. She looks like she can dig hard as well. She likes to stand and trade and I like to stand and trade. I just want to fight. I just want to punch her in the face. If she wants to burn her energy and time on social media, then let her do that” Courtenay added.
Shannon Courtenay finished by slating Bridges for her social media conduct. “If she wants to put polls out about underwear and wear a tiara on weigh-in day then crack on. Fill your boots. I don’t care. I’m there to fight.”
