Ebanie Bridges wasted no time turning Will Smith's Oscars slap on Chris Rock into a meme about Eddie Hearn's awkward looks during her raunchy boxing weigh-ins.
Smith shocked the world when he slapped Rock in the face on stage at the awards ceremony after the comedian made a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith. The incredible moment has been turned into a meme by Twitter and Instagram users – including Bridges.
The Blonde Bomber put her own captions on the snap referencing the embarrassment she causes Matchroom promotor Hearn when she strips down to her lingerie at weigh-ins. Bridges seemingly takes great enjoyment from making Hearn blush, having now done so on several occasions in the past.
Underneath Smith slapping Rock, she put: "Ebanie Bridges weigh-in." While underneath Rock, who in the picture is receiving the full force of the slap, she added: "Eddie Hearn."
Bridges tagged Hearn in the meme for good measure, although he is yet to respond publicly. The Australian boxer, who won her first world title on Saturday night, came prepared with a present for the Matchroom boss at her latest weigh-in.
After taking off her tracksuit and revealing her latest sexy lingerie selection, Bridges made a beeline for Hearn and handed him a pair of sunglasses. The prank, designed so that Hearn could keep looking instead of averting his gaze, went down a storm on social media.
He accepted the sunnies but quickly put them in his pocket as Bridges gave a cheeky grin to the camera and made her way towards the scales. It is the third time the outgoing Aussie has made the Brentwood-based promotor blush at a weigh-in.

She first caused him to look away when she turned up to the pre-fight pleasantries ahead of her fight against Bec Connolly last August wearing leopard-print thong and matching bra.
As Bridges moved towards him, Hearn averted his gaze, looking up at the ceiling and making sure his eyes were pointed anywhere but on the 35-year-old. "Defo was something up with that ceiling today," she tweeted afterwards to the delight of her followers.
The New South Wales fighter then repeated the trick before her fight against Mailys Gangloff, sparking a hilarious response from Hearn afterwards. "Anywhere the eyes look, there are cameras everywhere, do you know what I mean?" he said with a grin.
"So the best way to go about it is just to look somewhere else. Ebanie knows what she's doing. She's a tremendous fighter. Obviously a lot of people want to see her weigh-in as well."
And Bridges completed the hat-trick before her most recent about against Maria Cecilia Roman in Leeds on Saturday. Before the fight, she pledged to keep on turning up to weigh-ins wearing what she wanted.
Speaking on the Boxing with Steve Bunce podcast, she said: "Don't watch my weigh-ins if you don't like it. "I don't really care to be honest, because I am not going to change. I love weigh in dates, it's a cool day and it's the start towards the fight. I have a lot of fun."
