In the era of genetic advancements and DNA manipulation, popular influencer Elle Brooke finds herself contemplating the true motives of some of her followers. This is particularly when they come knocking for what can only be described as her ‘dirty laundry’.
And by ‘dirty laundry’, we mean it quite literally.
The accomplished 3-1 boxer recently disclosed an intriguing request from a devoted fan, who was in pursuit of her sweat-soaked gym attire. This peculiar inquiry left Brooke pondering the rationale behind such an unhygienic desire. Naturally, she arrived at what seemed the most logical conclusion: the possibility of someone trying to replicate an Elle Brooke of their own.
Brooke talked about it candidly in an interview. She said: “Some guy wanted to buy sweaty clothes, to the point where you could wring them out. Like training gear, socks, anything like that. I was just like oh man, that’s a bit unhygienic cause I work out really hard.”
“I always think, what if someone wants to clone me? Elle Brooke vs. Elle Brooke? Or make it a tag team with four of us? I’d love to do a tag team with my sister. I sparred her recently.”
Elle Brooke’s most recent foray into the ring was in July, under the Kyngpin Boxing banner in Dublin. Unfortunately she succumbed to fellow influencer Jully Oliveira at the event, marking her first defeat in the ring.
Brooke claimed after the bout that the promotion had essentially ghosted its athletes after their first show in April.
Brooke stated: “Between the first and the second Kingpyn tournament show, no fighter had any communication from the owners until two weeks before the fight. We were all messaging each other like, ‘What the f*ck is going on?’ Even the amazing event staff and the social media team were in the dark. None of us knew what the f*ck was happening.”
“We were then told that the first event didn’t do well at all and that the investors had pulled out and it was likely that this show wasn’t even gonna happen. Days later we were told the event could still happen but on the condition it was on DAZN and that we would be paid on a revenue-share basis.”
Kyngpin Boxing faced bankruptcy and was about to shut down two weeks before the event until DAZN stepped along and gave them a chance to keep the lights on.
Brooke stated: “Of course, all the fighters were pissed off about this, we’ve been working our a**es off for months and months and we wanted to fight. We were backed up in a corner to accept if we wanted to fight and most of us did. We have been training for months and months. You don’t know the amount of hard work that goes into the back of a fight.”
“The owners knew that the investors had pulled out days after the first tournament show. They waited until two weeks prior to the second tournament show to tell us that the investors had pulled out. And this is after all the fighters had been training months and they had promoted the show.”
As of now, no further Kyngpin Boxing events have been announced beyond the July card at 3Arena.
