World female boxing champion, Daniella Hemsley has been disqualified from participating in the final after flashing her breasts to the audience in esctacy while on stage.
Th ban comes in the wake of a scandalous incident during her first-career boxing victory, where she exposed her breasts to the crowd on live TV.
The Kingpyn Boxing promotion, known for organizing high-profile influencer boxing events, swiftly took action and issued a statement expressing their regret over the incident. They acknowledged that the post-fight display did not meet the standards expected from their fight nights and apologized to viewers who may have been offended.
“We apologize fully to anyone upset during the broadcast. The fighter involved in the incident will not be appearing in the Final event,” stated the Kingpyn Boxing promotion, as reported by The Sun.
Hemsley’s rapid ascent to fame took an unexpected turn, and her promising boxing career is now in jeopardy. The promotion further announced that she will be taking a break from boxing, leaving her future in the sport uncertain.
Attempting to explain her actions, Hemsley claimed in a post-fight interview that she had obtained approval from the promoter before the controversial moment. However, her explanation failed to quell the backlash and repercussions she faced.
In an effort to make amends, Hemsley posted an apology on Instagram during her moment of celebration. She expressed remorse to those who may have been offended, explaining that she had worn tassels that unfortunately got stuck to her bra due to sweat. Despite her attempt at damage control, the incident had already sparked heated discussions within the boxing community.
Prominent figures in the sport, such as Eddie Hearn, a well-known promoter, and Claressa Shields, a two-time gold medalist, were among those who disapproved of Hemsley’s actions. Hearn voiced his frustration, emphasizing the hard work invested in gaining respect for women in boxing based on their skill and dedication.
Shields echoed the sentiment on Twitter, stating, “Wow….. this is a step backwards for women’s boxing. Stop this s–t.”
Prior to the incident, Kingpyn had signed Daniella Hemsley to a multi-fight deal in March. However, it remains to be seen how this controversy will impact their partnership in the future.
As of now, Hemsley has not publicly addressed Kingpyn’s statement, leaving her followers and fans uncertain about her future both as a boxer and a social media influencer. The aftermath of this viral moment continues to unfold, raising questions about the impact of social media influencers in the world of professional sports.
