Boxer Daniella Hemsley has sparked outrage after lifting up her top to celebrate a victory.
The Kingpyn Boxing event in Dublin, Ireland, took an unexpected turn on Saturday, when OFs star turned fighter Hemsley, 22, gave the crowd much more than they bargained for.
Headlined by YouTube celebrities Whinderrson Nunes and King Kenny, the fight night featured a number of big names taking to the ring.
While Hemsley and Aleksandra Danielka showed little boxing prowess in their five-round bout, Hemsley managed to capitalise on Danielka’s weak defence and landed some decent shots throughout the fight.

When the final bell rang, the judges scored the match 48-47, 48-47, and 49-46 in favour of Hemsley.
But the real surprise came after the fight when the 22-year-old shocked everyone by pulling up her sports bra, revealing more than expected.
The audience at the 3Arena was taken aback by the X-rated moment.
In her post-fight interview, Hemsley apologised for the unexpected display, explaining that she was simply trying to express herself.
She later wrote on Instagram: “I DID IT! Ola definitely didn’t have a walk in the park (her words) but big respect, that was true WAR!
“I also apologise to anyone who may have felt offended by my excitement, I did actually have tassels on but the sweat stuck them to my bra lol.”
Boxing star Claressa Shields slammed Hemsley, saying: “Wow… this is a step backwards for women’s boxing. Stop this s***.”
And Eddie Hearn – arguably the sport’s biggest promoter – also took aim at the topless boxer.
He said of influencer boxing: “I think if I start preaching people just moan at me anyway, but you always ask me my opinion.
“And my opinion is I hate it.
“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.”
Despite the controversy, Hemsley’s win against Danielka marked her first victory in the ring, an impressive achievement considering she had only started training in boxing a few weeks before her debut in April.
Fans watching the event online were taken aback by the shocking moment, especially considering the young audience.
Many parents found themselves in awkward situations trying to explain the unexpected display to their kids.

While some online users pointed out the double standards, questioning why such behaviour is deemed acceptable just because Hemsley is a woman.
Others expressed concern about the age demographic of the crossover boxing audience and how such incidents can impact younger viewers.
While the unexpected moment certainly stirred up a lot of discussions and controversies, it’s clear that the Kingpyn Boxing event will be remembered for more than just the boxing matches.
