- OnlyFans boxer slammed for flashing breasts
- Bridges says it’s something she’d never do
- Bridges doesn’t think it’s bad for the sport
OnlyFans boxing star Daniella Hemsley has been slammed for flashing the crowd after her win against Aleksandra Danielka at a Kingpyn Boxing event – but world champ Ebanie Bridges doesn’t believe it’s bad for the sport.
Hemsley, 22, made headlines around the world when she decided to celebrate her win in X-rated fashion – lifting up her bra to expose her breasts for those inside the 3Arena – and the fans watching at home.
Hemsley apologised for her astonishing actions in her post-fight interview, saying emotions just got the better of her – but she was quickly criticised by some of the sport’s biggest names.
Boxing promotor Eddie Hearn didn’t like what he saw – or the growing trend of celebrities and influencers getting professional boxing bouts.
‘My opinion is I hate it,’ he told Boxing Social.

Boxing promotor Eddie Hearn was not a fan of the X-rated celebration – or the growing trend of celebrity and influencer boxing
‘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.
‘And that needs to be pushed, all that stuff, Misfits, Kingpyn, it needs to be booted so far away from professional boxing and we really need to disassociate ourselves with what it is.’
Boxing superstar Claressa Shields agreed with Hearn. Taking to Twitter after the X-rated celebration, she wrote: ‘Wow….. this is a step backwards for women’s boxing. Stop this s***.’
Aussie world champ Ebanie Bridges, who is well-known for wearing racy lingerie at weigh-ins, didn’t think the celebration was bad for women in the sport, insisting ‘influencer boxing’ is different.
‘I think tonight all y’all that complain / about me & say I ‘show my t**s’ saw what ‘showing your t**s’ actually looks like… somthing I’d never do,’ Bridges tweeted.
‘There is weighing in in Underwear like everyone else… but having big boobs…. And then there’s actually showing ur t**s on TV.
‘I get why she’s done it… she’s an ‘influencer’ it’s all about views & she knows it would break the internet, get views & everyone would be talking about it. So she has succeeded in that… it’s influencer boxing their goal is to break the internet.

Hemsley has issued a second apology for her X-rated celebration, saying she actually had tassels on but they came off in her bra
‘But now please stop saying I show my t*s LOL cos i f***en dont. And I don’t need to to break the internet I do that clothed.
‘Ps – she had great boobs tbf hahaha & anyone who is going on about how it’s bad for womens boxing – firstly it’s influencer boxing & secondly, it’s really not going to effect it, let’s be real. All it’s gonna do is get that influencer more exposure, more followers & more money.’
Hemsley issued another apology for her actions post-fight, writing on Instagram: ‘I also apologise to anyone who may have felt offended by my excitement.’
She revealed: ‘I did actually have tassels on but the sweat stuck them to my bra lol.’
