Australian boxing world champion Ebanie Bridges has vowed to show Leeds United his chest if they can avoid relegation from the Premier League.
Manager Sam Allardyce’s side were on the brink of relegation and were dealt a further blow to their hopes of staying in the top flight when they lost 3-1 to West Ham United on Sunday at the London Stadium.
Leeds still have a fighting chance of avoiding the drop, but they need to get a big win at home against Tottenham next week and Bournemouth will be hoping to pick up points against Everton, who sit above them with two point buffer.
Bridges, a lifelong supporter of Leeds United, does not want his side to drop out of England’s top division and has vowed to flash them if they can avoid disaster.
‘Hey guys, if you stay, I’ll flash my boobs,’ he told Talk Sport before the defeat at West Ham.

The Whites are on the brink of relegation, and were dealt a further blow to their survival hopes after they lost 3-1 at West Ham United at the weekend
‘I’m going to go into that locker room, pull up my shirt and flash my boobs or something like that.
‘I’ll kiss you, no matter what. Regardless, I’ll give you a free subscription to my OnlyFans.
‘Please Leeds stay up, don’t let me down.’
The IBF bantamweight world champ reiterated his commitment ahead of the fight by reposting an article about it along with the comment: ‘I said what I said. Come on Leeds’.
The Blonde Bomber got emotional after losing to West Ham, posting some heartbroken emojis.
When manager Sam Allardyce was called upon to rescue Leeds with just four games remaining this season, he pointed out that the encounter against his former club was a must-win.
His players, for all their efforts, failed to deliver. As a result, Leeds needed a last-minute miracle.
With his side’s fate out of his hands, Allardyce made no excuses for his team’s post-match performance.

Leeds’ hopes of staying in the top flight now hang in the balance and will need to beat Tottenham next weekend and hope Bournemouth can do them a mighty favor at Everton
‘Obviously very disappointing,’ he told Sky Sports when reflecting on the game.
‘There were a lot of things that suggested we had chances to get three points in the first half but unfortunately we were let down by the frustrations in the final third.
‘The second half was a bit of a battle, a bit of a struggle and then whatever we tried in terms of changes didn’t improve the situation for us.
‘There were a lot of chances in the first half but not enough quality. Second half we had to defend better and wait for our chances to be taken but unfortunately that was not the case. The West Ham players showed better ability in the final third than we did.
‘We have to look at ourselves and say if we win next week and miraculously stay in the league, we have a long way to go in terms of quality for the team.’
It’s not the first time Bridges has made a strange promise about Leeds.
Last December, he struck a bet with social media influencer and Manchester City fan Elle Brooke as they agreed that whoever won their clash would punch the losing side’s supporter.
