Looks as if there’s a steep price to pay for flashing the goodies.
Former model-turned-boxer Daniella Hemsley will not be participating in any boxing events on the streaming platform DAZN in the near future.
Hemsley garnered significant attention recently when she exposed herself to the crowd following her victory at the Kingpyn boxing tournament, which was streamed on DAZN.

Prominent boxing promoter Eddie Hearn expressed his disapproval of Hemsley’s actions, stating that they negatively impact the reputation of women’s boxing.
“My opinion is that 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 dissociate ourselves with what it is”

Hearn also called for the boxing community to distance themselves from organizations like Kingpyn and Misfits, which he views as gimmicky.
In response to the incident, Kingpyn boxing issued an apology and announced that Hemsley has been removed from their upcoming fight card.
