Warrington vs Lopez Undercard: Ebanie Bridges And Felix Cash Win

EBANIE BRIDGES VS SHANNON O’CONNELL – IBF 118lbs champ Ebanie Bridges (9-1, 4KO) doesn’t know any other way to fight but to come forward. Her adversary in this fight prefers a boxing match so she can have time to plan her next move.

The first two rounds saw her game-plan work as O’Connell (23-7-1, 11KO) repeatedly countered the sloppily aggressive champion with the right hand. Then in round 3, a right hand over top that put O’Connell down changed the fight. After feeling that power, she could no longer hold off the bully that was Bridges. Round after round, the straight right found its mark and the swollen left eye on O’Connell was proof. Finally in the 8th round, the ref had seen enough and called off the fight. O’Connell was extremely reluctant to give Bridges respect afterwards given their bad-blood. Regardless of how she feels, she got beat definitively!


Labeled as one of the better fighters from the UK, Cash (16-0, 10KO) started the fight with the wrong game-plan. Instead of using his superior technical abilities, he elected to go for the knockout instead. This left him open for Neves (9-3-2, 2KO) to capitalize on opportunities. Maybe the idea came from four of his last five wins coming by stoppage and a sense of urgency because he didn’t look good in his last fight against Magomed Madiev.

Whatever the case, he started boxing Neves in the second half of the fight to ensure victory. Next up may be undefeated rising contender Austin “Ammo” Williams who gave his interpretation of this fight ringside and PLEADED with Cash to look more impressive to help build intrigue for their match-up.


Former WBA 118lbs champ Shannon Courtenay (8-2, 3KO) returned after a year layoff from losing her title to Jamie Mitchell in October 2021. She was geared up to give an impressive performance, but found herself in a hard battle. Although unknown with a .500 record and coming off a loss, Ruegg (5-6, 1KO) wanted to show the UK she was not a “tune-up”. She succeeded and given Courtenay only won by 1 round, the notion of her being “ready to get her title back” remains to be seen.
