The showdown between the two Aussies was given the busty billing due to both women stripping down to their underwear for fight weigh-ins.

It was due to occur on the undercard of Regis Prograis vs Devin Haney in San Francisco, America.

However, Bridges’ comeback match from a hand issue is now potentially in doubt after Mathie, 36, allegedly pulled out through injury.

And now the Daily Star says that she is desperately hunting for a replacement opponent to fill the void.

Bridges is “believed to be gutted that her swimwear model friend can’t compete”.

Now she faces a race against time to find someone to step in on short notice so that she can defend her IBF bantamweight title.

Mathie has been ruled out after suffering an injury in training for the clash.

And it is not just the two fighters that will be disappointed not to see them go one-on-one.

Bridges had already been busy hyping up the contest and joked that she had already triumphed as her “boobs are better”.

She had also added: “The weigh-in will break the internet.

“It will also get a lot of viewers outside of boxing because people will be interested to see if these two ‘OnlyFans models’ can box.”

Bridges has only defended her championship once since she won it from Maria Cecilia Roman in March 2022.

That was when she produced an eighth-round TKO to beat Shannon O’Connell last December.

Bridges broke her right hand in the lead up to that fight but still remarkably battled through the pain to get her arm raised before undergoing surgery.

The much-loved star still managed to keep growing her social media fan base during her absence from the ring.

And she was dubbed “the hottest woman in the room” this week as she sparkled in see-through top and ripped jeans.
