OnlyFans boxer draws rebuke for flashing breasts to crowd after win: ‘We live in a f–king mental world’

A social media influencers skin-baring celebration after a boxing match victory left one of the sport’s top promoters concerned for the future of women’s competition and society.

“…we live in a f*cking mental world.”

Saturday night at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland the semi-final matchup of Kingpyn Boxing’s influencer tournament pitted OnlyFans model Daniella Hemsley against former Polish Love Island star Aleksandra Daniel, also known as Ms. Danielka.

Claiming victory by unanimous decision, Hemsley, whose social media profiles contain explicit content, celebrated with an exposure that left viewers debating what was best for women’s sports.

No sooner had her hand been raised in victory, the influencer was lifting her top, baring her breasts during the live broadcast while the camera remained fixed on her celebration.

After the display, promoter and Matchroom Sport chairman, Eddie Hearn spoke with Boxing Social to offer his opinion on what “needs to be booted so far away from professional boxing…”

“I think if I start preaching people will just moan at me anyway, but you always ask for my opinion. My opinion is I hate it. I hate it,” he lamented. “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. And that needs to be pushed.”

“The problem today is you want kids to have great role models. I have two daughters. When my daughters spend time or have met Katie Taylor — it is the greatest thing I could ever see,” Hearn said speaking of the Irish Olympic Gold medalist. “Them, looking at a female, who has achieved so much and shown them that anything’s possible — even when everything’s stacked against you, anything’s possible. I think what we’re lacking in society at the moment is role models.”

“And unfortunately, we now live in a world where role models, or influencers, are not necessarily doing things that the older generation — which I class myself as — or parents would want your kids to see or think is acceptable. Nothing to do with women, nothing to do with men. You want your kids to behave in a certain way. That’s not a way you’d want your kids to behave, in my opinion. This is only my opinion. But we live in a f*cking mental world,” the promoter decried.

For her part, speaking with Fred Talks Boxing, Hemsley appeared to apologize after the fact when she said, “I got a bit overwhelmed, I just wanted to express myself.”

However, reports suggested that she may have gotten the okay beforehand from Kingpyn, further supporting Hearn’s argument, “All that stuff — Misfits, Kingpyns — it needs to be booted so far away from professional boxing and we really need to disassociate ourselves with what it is.”

“It does great numbers. It’s entertainment. It’s all of those things. And what we saw there tonight…for me, what I’m trying to do and what we’ve been doing for years and years, the sacrifices people have made to be respected, it’s not boxing but at the same time I think it’s more of a reflection of society than a reflection of good or bad for boxing,” he noted. “I don’t like it.”

“Unfortunately, clout is just being chased all over the place,” Hearn said attempting to remain nonjudgmental. “Each to their own. Each to their own. That’s her world…but not for me.”
