Ebanie Bridges has once again made a joke at the expense of her promoter Eddie Hearn as she used the crying filter on Instagram to perfection.
In the original clip, Hearn is seen breaking Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez after the Mexican star’s stunning loss to Dmitry Bivol. Hearn congratulated the Russian on his tremendous win as he joined Floyd Mayweather in inflicting a record loss on Alvarez.
However, Bridges posted the clip with the crying filter, which has become popular online, to his 501,000 followers with the caption: “Soz @eddiehearn but that makes me scream” along with a number of crying and laughing emojis .
As the clip continues with Hearn singing Bivol’s praises – calling the 31-year-old “the best fighter of the day” – Bridges adds another caption. She writes: “it’s heartbreaking but @eddiehearn is spitting out facts”
The story ends with Hearn continuing to praise Bivol for his work ethic, in-ring stamina, and defensive ability. Bridges simply signs off with a “#MyFavFilter” remark.
It comes after Bridges hit out at Hearn’s promotion colleague and YouTuber Jake Paul for using hitting stats to declare his client Amanda Serrano the real victor against Katie Taylor. Taylor earned a close split decision to claim victory in the historic undisputed title clash at Madison Square Garden.
The Blonde Bomber took to Twitter to respond to Paul, who wrote: ‘Men lie. Women lie. Numbers don’t. as he claimed Serrano deserved the win. Bridges writes: “Ahh no Jake, I’m sorry but it doesn’t work like that…if boxing was just judged by the total number of hits received at the end of the fight, we wouldn’t need judges, just a tally .
“This message shows how little you know about boxing and I really like what you are doing for women’s boxing, but no, this message is not casual”
Taylor was nearly stopped earlier in the fight after the hard-hitting Serrano led an attack in the sixth round. However, the Irish star recovered with brave courage and produced a scintillating finish to the contest.
Paul claimed Taylor and Hearn were “talking shit” after the Irish star suggested the American “knew nothing” about promoting a historic boxing bout.
