Not long to go now until perhaps one of the most talked about women’s boxing fights in recent times takes place.
A battle between Australian Ebanie Bridges and the UK’s Shannon Courtenay on April 10th.
It’s a fight that actually has come out of nowhere, in a sense.
Bridges catapulted to attention after her last fight in March, more than any so far, and it just seemed a natural fight to make.
So it was.
Ahead of the fight Bridges has been clearly putting in the work and looking good:
The interest Bridges has been able to create for herself and women’s boxing has been considerable in such a short time frame.
Almost unexplainable logically, in truth. Fair play.
Let’s hope the fight lives up to the hype, we’re sure it will.
We’ll be taking a break from the site over the coming days and scheduling some content in the meantime while on one quick final short distance trip here in the Middle East for a couple of days to Jerusalem, Israel for Easter Sunday and Monday.
Update: Back soon. Passed the PCR Test at the airport. Two passed in a row now recently but apparently even a two day holiday from Turkey to Jerusalem, Israel needed a letter/permission from the Israel Consulate as a non-Israel citizen/resident going there didn’t say anything about that online and had to go to the airport first to get the PCR test there before getting the ticket, so incredible scenes today, they kept apologizing, thank God for them they issued a full refund, will keep some people updated as and when. Due to the world situation at this time. Gutted. Absolutely gutted. Wanted to be there for Easter Sunday for my faith as likely will never be so close to there in life again as now in Turkey. Will have to wait until the after life now for old Armageddon. Jesus Christ and team God win at the end. Don’t worry about that. In Turkey another while until visa appointment for America soon. Damn. Another panic attack in an airport but I am okay. Some sort of panic attacks at airports for some reason but we’ll fix it. Beat the booze, substances, coffee, red meat, cigarettes and all the other bad habits and a huge range of allergies ironed out. Only positive is the system is super strong. Passing another PCR test again. A record of 2-0 with them so far. Grateful. See below. Without the vaccine, too, even after recovering from a stomach bug/bacterial infection recently, will just wait for America for the vaccine later in the year likely, as just keep passing the PCR tests thankfully. Not a good experience with Turkish people today at that airport again, I don’t know what it is about that Istanbul airport, to put it very lightly, but will also wait to update people of what happened very soon and will stay calm for now. Documented everything logically and chronologically and will take my time with this, provided everything works out okay. Which it will, am sure it will be fine but today was not acceptable.
(We’ll save the old Bulgarian government ministry PCR test one for another day)
Please, on a very serious note. I am aware there are a lot of people around the world worrying about me. I know I have been through a lot these last few years and how I am as strong as I am. Evidence of the documents above. Trust me, I know myself inside out. You have to be a survivor in life. There is no other way. My faith is everything to me firstly. There is no one that believes in me more than me. I am on the right track and today’s panic attack was a minor slip. We’ve done some of the biggest media numbers of all-time in this site’s history in the first quarter of this year already. All transparent in a good old tech thing called ads.txt. All good. Re the airport today, it was brought on by some unacceptable behavior from that airport again. Mainly breathing difficulties with the mask at that airport specifically. They do not take into account some people are not good at breathing sometimes and have breathing difficulties when wearing the masks. I am forever working on my breathing and can’t bloody help that my brain is too quick for most and perhaps a little too smart and bright for my own good. Am unique in that my brain is probably too damn smart for my own good but I am humble enough to know that makes me no better than anyone else. We are all equally different. My people where my work is know me best and anyway will be settling down in my work soon there and in life where my work is. Will be grand then. I love my work. It’s not a job really. You are blessed if you have ability to do something at a very high level without effort. God, my work, my people and America are everything to me. Looking back on today, a lot of people struggling with breathing and the masks at that specific airport also. The air quality there is not good. I am okay. No hospital this time. Just this panic attack thing at airports left now. Don’t worry, we’ll beat it. Just like we beat everything else. Went a bit off my head today this bloody pandemic got the better of me today. All over the shop. Sorry. Back soon.
Have a good Easter and enjoy the boxing this weekend. Some great fights in store, not least this one:
