Here it is ebony jones ebony.
That name sounds familiar ebony and ivory ebony jones um not to be mistaken, with ebony bridges out of australia, but ebony jones ebony jones is making her pro debut [ Music ].
Yes, her pronate, you on you guessed it saturday october, the second and so you’re you’re telling me she’s undefeated, oh she’s, undefeated, baby, she’s, undefeated, she’s undefeated, yes, in a pro career, um she’s got a great story: uh she’s, making her pro debut on this saturday’s card And yes, it is the chris eubank junior card, so this week has been a little bit of a a week of this saturday’s fight.
So everybody i brought up this week is fighting this saturday.
So that being said, we’re going to talk about this wonderful portsmouth girl, man um the concert battle to make way for the tokyo olympics to represent team.
Great britain on the big stage was a defeating factor for her decision to walk away from the sport.
So, yes, you heard that right, walk away from the sport recorded 60 victories, multiple national british titles and as well under 22 glory jones, was finished with the sport and grown up serving in the army.
The 22 year old from drayton briefly kept um.
You know kept looking back to her team grip, written um, and then she decided to cut boxing right out of her life entirely.
So this girl cut this stuff right out of her life.
Had a wonderful amateur career 60 victories in 65, fights and uh.
She walked away, man and a number of factors had contributed to one of britain’s biggest hopes for tokyo, stepping away from the ring completely.
So she was one of gb’s, great hopes for the tokyo games, but remarkably after extended break last summer, the penny dropped for the former charter academy school people.
She was not willing to let her undoubted potential remain just that.
Instead, jones is ready to return to the sport which we’re glad uh, because now she’s gon na fight this weekend.
So i’m glad she decided to return to the sport.
Um things escalated from a message to now trainer and manager, john edwards, as one of off seasons.
At guilford city boxing club has now turned into prepping herself for the first professional fight of the year this saturday, so guys, graham everybody out there watching ebony bridges, man she’s she’s, about to come and show us what she’s all about.
Can you hear me, can you hear me because i can’t hear you, but you can hear me, but yes, ebony bridges on saturday she’s returning to the sport that she walked away from because of the military she was.
I thought you said i said ebony.
Jonas or something emily jones – yes, ebony jones, not ebony bridges.
I keep telling you not everybody bridges, ebony jones, ebony jones walked away from this.
Sport was in the military, has decided to return because she had a lot of potential man with a wonderful amateur record respect.
I don’t know if you’ve been drinking or anything, but you just said ebony bridges about three people.
I said you couldn’t hear me.
I said not ebony bridges, ebony jones, don’t get it mixed and it’s even spelled differently.
It’S not eb! It’S! Oh there’s an o in there, it’s e-b-o-n-i-e, so listen ebony jones.
She is returning.
Do the sport that she walked away from mitchell as an amateur we’re gon na get to see her we’re gon na get to see her on saturday make her pro debut.
I’M super good for her yeah man great for her great for her wonderful female friday.
You know i can’t wait all these people that i’ve talked about this week are fighting this weekend on this card, so this is gon na, be a big card man and especially for our knuckle up fans that uh tune in daily to see this guys saturday.
Here, here’s my question to you: quickly is ebony gon na win: oh yeah, i think she’s gon na kick some ass yeah yeah yeah.
I think he’s gon na kick some ass.
I think i think she’s been waiting for this long enough.
So look so she walked away from the sport she’s.
A military girl she’s got discipline.
We all know that she walked away from the spark because she could never see she didn’t see her chances of you know doing tokyo, that’s over with she’s, now decided to return and and and go into that that um mindset where she was where uh you know.
She can box again and now, she’s gon na box and she’s gon na show us what the hell she can do, because you know what man with a talented with a talent like hers, somebody who was 60 victories, you know and 65 belts to just walk away From that and not and not, you know, entertain the idea of going pro.
Oh man that just ate her up inside man and then she’s been thinking about it the whole time so ebony jones bridges, jones, ebony jones people, blonde bomber from australia, jones, okay.
This girl, i think she’s gon na kick some ass tonight.
I think this is one of these girls that we’re definitely gon na wish.
She’S he’s just one of these girls.
You know she was supposed to be the big hope in the olympics, but you know it had worked out.
So everything jones has been working towards since starting out at heart, of portsmouth academy at the age of 12 had been taken away.
The dream of becoming an olympic champion would now never become a reality, and it had been a damaging impact on this portsmouth fighter.
Now that she has rekindled her appetite and is ready to show why she was so highly uh rated as an amateur guys.
We’Re gon na see some serious [, __ ] tonight or sorry saturday, night um and the former hop prospect will be out to continue as she comes and i swear.
