The topless celebration that got OnlyFans boxer Daniella Hemsley being featured on countless headlines, has ultimately proven to be detrimental as she has been banned from competing at Kingpyn’s final show.
Daniella Hemsley “will not be appearing in the final event” says Kingpyn
Hemsley defeated Danielka via unanimous decision (48-47,48-47,49-46) in the semifinals of the Kingpyn Influencer Boxing Tournament, which took place in Dublin, Ireland on the 15th of July.
The young content creator wowed fans by celebrating topless right after being named the winner by the judges, and the clips of the celebrations quickly became viral on social media, and has been received mostly with criticism.
The promotion themselves have now broken silence on the matter, announcing that Hemsley will not be allowed to compete in their final showdown which is set to take place at the O2 Arena in September.
“As we strive to bring fans the best influencer boxing events possible, we accept that Saturday’s post fight incident may have offended some viewers and we appreciate that this incident didn’t meet the standards expected from Kingpyn fight nights,” read an official statement from Kingpyn.
“We apologise fully to anyone upset from the broadcast. The fighter involved in the incident will not be appearing in the final event and has decided to take some time away from boxing. We will now be turning our attention to the Kingpyn finals, with all of us more determined than ever to hold the greatest night of influencer boxing and showcase the very best sport we all love,” the promotion added.
Hemsley’s celebration did see support from IBF bantamweight champ Ebanie Bridges, who’s a content creator on OnlyFans herself and famed for turning heads during weigh-ins. However, the majority opined against it, including promoter Eddie Hearn.
“My opinion is, I hate it,” Hearn said in an interview with Boxing Social. “I hate it. We’ve worked so hard for women in boxing to be respected for their ability, for their merits, for their hard work. One thing we must understand is that ain’t boxing. That needs to be pushed. All that stuff – Misfits, Kingpyn, all that stuff. It needs to be booted so far away from professional boxing, and we really need to disassociate ourselves with what it is.” [H/T Mirror.co.uk]
