OnlyFans boxer Daniella Hemsley has been banned from competing in the upcoming Kingpyn Boxing final after she flashed the crowd on live TV following her victory last Saturday night.
The 22-year-old model outpointed rival Aleksandra Danielka in the loser’s bracket of the Kingpyn High Stakes tournament in Dublin.
The social media star was announced as the winner via unanimous decision, before deciding to celebrate in X-rated fashion by lifting up her sports bra to expose her breasts for those inside the 3Arena and fans watching at home.
Kingpyn have now announced that Hemsley will be banned from competing in the final show, which is expected to be held 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,’ a statement from the promotion read.

Kingpyn Boxing has apologised for Hemsley’s actions and announced that she won’t be appearing at the final show
‘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.’
Hemsley, who claims she got approval from the promoter to pull off the X-rated stunt, addressed the situation on Thursday via a YouTube video.
‘I hope you’ve really enjoyed this weekend’s antics,’ said Hemsley.
‘You’ve enjoyed my win – my first win – and I really hope you enjoyed the celebration after.’
The social media star then went on to explain that she had attached tassels onto her nipples, but they had both come off during the bout, and she was surprised by what happened when she lifted up her top.
Hemsley also insisted that she is not banned from the Kingpyn promotion, explaining that she is just ‘taking a break’.
‘I am not banned from Kingpyn, guys – I have simply decided to take a few weeks off from training to recover,’ she said.

‘And I plan on coming back fighting again, hopefully in the winter.’
Hemsley issued an apology for her astonishing actions immediately after the bout, 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.
‘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.’
Hemsely’s controversial celebration was slammed by some of the sport’s biggest names
World champion Ebanie Bridges didn’t have a problem with Hemsley’s actions, insisting that ‘influencer boxing’ is different
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… something 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.
‘But now please stop saying I show my t*s LOL cos i f***en don’t. 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 women’s 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.’
