CAREER CHANGE OnlyFans beauty Elle Brooke wants to trash talk like Conor McGregor and Tyson Fury and dreams of fighting on Jake Paul card with successful boxing debut

Elle Brooke is best known for her steamy OnlyFans content, but the 24-year-old is now looking to be the next big thing in influencer boxing.

Under the guidance of renowned trainer Mark Tibbs, who has cornered Dillian Whyte, Brooke has taken to life in the ring and trains alongside IBF bantamweight champion Ebanie Bridges ahead of her debut fight on 16 July.

Originally, Brooke was ready to settle a score with fellow OnlyFans creator Astrid Wett, but when her rival withdrew from the fight, former Love Island contestant AJ Bunker stepped in.

A week out from her fight, Brooke sat down with talkSPORT to explain her own influences and expressed her desire to be known for something more.

On how she got into boxing…

“It started with a DM really. The organisers were like ‘Do you want to get into it? Would you like to be on a card?’ And I was like hey, why not? 

“It wasn’t something initially where I was like I really, really want to be a boxer. I didn’t wake up one day and say ‘I want to be punched in the face for a living!’ Absolutely not.

“But once I started getting stuck into it and cutting my teeth in the gym, I never looked back.”

On choosing boxing over lucrative OnlyFans career…

“I don’t need the money. I know that sounds so big headed, but I don’t need [what I’m earning from this card]. I make enough money from OnlyFans. 

“To me, this is absolutely a hobby that I’m just enjoying at the moment. I don’t want to be known as that OnyFans girl anymore. I want to be known for as Elle Brooke, good at something.

“I think that something will be boxing because I’m naturally aggressive, naturally an a******, I think that combination works. 

“And I’m a hard worker, I think everybody at the gym would tell you that. Good ingredients for what an influencer boxer needs to be.”

AJ Bunkers’ lack of promotional skills, inspiration from Conor McGregor and Tyson Fury…

“I’ve got nothing bad to say about AJ in the sense that she’s probably really nice, probably a good friend and a bit funny. But she is so dry at selling a fight. 

“She needs to go watch a bit of Tyson Fury, bit of Conor McGregor. Get a few hints of what it’s about. Because you can’t play the nice Anthony Joshua card because no one is watching you for your amazing skills. You have to be compensating in other ways which, in my opinion, is entertainment.

“Yeah, I’m like McGregor, I need to talk like you! In a minute I’ll be like “You dosser” like Tyson Fury [laughs]. Luckily for me, I’m just naturally a bit of a c*** to be honest.”

On one day fighting on a Jake Paul card…

“Oh my god, being on a Jake Paul card is the absolute dream. I don’t see it happening in the next fight or maybe the fight after. But even if I could do really well on this fight, I would love to be kind of recognised by him. 

“If he reacted to it or gave a bit of a heads up and said ‘you’ve done great’ that would mean the absolute world to me. That would be the ideal dream.

I’m not being like ‘I want to be on an AJ card! I want to be a professional!’ I want to smash the influencer scene and see what’s next. I train with Ebanie Bridge and Ebanie didn’t even have her first amateur fight until she was 30 and I’m only 24. 

“Working alongside her I realised that anything is possible. She’s really rubbing off on me, her success and her drive. She’s a dream to work with.”

Training with Mark Tibbs and Ebanie Bridges…

“Ebanie and I sparred yesterday, I have a black eye right now [laughs]. Mark Tibbs has taken great care of me, but he doesn’t treat me like I’m someone just starting boxing. 

“He only trains proper professionals so he’s treating me like the rest of the people in his gym. We went to Derek Chisora’s gym the other day and he just left me to it – I was terrified!”
