EBANIE BRIDGES has taken on rival Shannon Courtenay for agreeing to appear on Celebrity SAS Who Dares Wins.
Courtenay, 29, beat Bridges to capture the WBA bantamweight title in April 2021.
Since then, the pair have continued to exchange trash talk ahead of a possible rematch.
And Australian Bridges have now slammed Courtenay after confirming the Brit would be appearing on the hit Channel 4 programme, which tests celebrities’ physical and mental abilities.
Bridges, who claimed a world title of her own earlier this year, competed on the Australian version of the show.
And one social media user accused Courtenay of copying her, saying: “I see Courtenay is copying/repasting Ebanie Bridges…”
To which Bridges replied, “I hope it’s changed her a bit and she’s growing as a person tbh.”
Bridges’ only professional defeat to date came at the hands of Courtenay – but the Australian’s fate has since changed.
She has had three consecutive victories, culminating in a World Cup triumph over Maria Cecilia Roman five months ago in Leeds.
Meanwhile, Courtenay was unable to follow up on her win over Bridges as she lost her WBA belt on the scales.

She came two and a half pounds over the 118-pound mark for her fight with Jamie Mitchell in October last year.
To add to her disappointment, Courtenay was then beaten in a fight that left only Mitchell with the title at stake.
The Hertfordshire-born fighter has not returned to the ring since that defeat 10 months ago.
