Ebanie Bridges ‘loved pepper spray’ in SAS Who Dares Wins

A high percentage of the world’s population would probably react negatively to a face full of pepper spray, but IBF Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ebanie Bridges is definitely not most people.

Like most boxing champions, “the blonde bomber” has a significant pain barrier that helps her achieve historic victories such as her recent triumph over Maria Cecilia Roman. Bridges has certainly found herself in many jaw-dropping states, once claiming her eyes were ‘bigger than her breasts’ after a tough fight against Shannon Courtenay

However, the Aussie is not indestructible, as she admitted to seriously doubting herself during her test time on Ant Middleton’s infamous SAS Who Dares Wins physical and mental endurance test. Luckily, a healthy dose of pepper spray was able to lift her spirits and get her back into action.

“I’m definitely a results person, so for me to start believing, in myself, I need to see results,” Bridges told the break point podcast when asked about his struggles on SAS Who Dares Wins.. “You would have seen it on the SAS show.

“Until I started to see success, it was very difficult, it was very difficult for me to believe it. It’s all well and good to say it and believe it, but it wasn’t working.

“I sat there saying ‘yes I can do it’ when I fucking couldn’t. But then I started doing the physical stuff I was good at and started being able to use my mind for certain things.

“Like pepper spray, I loved that shit and I’d do it again. I loved being able to block out the pain and do the things that I was really good at, because I was like ‘okay, I can do it. do” – it started to put a lot more positivity in me.

As motivating and inspiring as Bridges is, the likelihood of the Aussie boxer recommending a good shot of pepper spray remains very slim. However, his love for the usually dreaded substance used by the SAS is testament to his hardened mentality and tolerance for pain.
