Daniella Hemsley – who lifted up her top to celebrate a boxing victory – has been banned from competing in the final of the competition.

The 22-year-old OFs star turned athlete found herself in a sticky situation after her recent fight.

Hemsley secured her first boxing win in a tough battle against Danielka at the 3Arena in Dublin, but things took an unexpected turn when she let her emotions get the best of her.

Right after her victory, she decided to celebrate in a rather unconventional way by flashing her b****ts.

Needless to say, this post-fight display didn’t sit well with the event organisers, Kingpyn, who have now dropped a bombshell punishment on Hemsley.

She’s been banned from competing in the highly-anticipated final show, set to take place at The O2 arena in September.

Kingpyn, known for hosting thrilling influencer boxing events, issued a statement which read: “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.

“We apologise fully to anyone upset by 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.”

So Hemsley is out of the final showdown, and it looks like she’s taking a break from the boxing scene for a while.

Of course, fans have taken to the internet to express their shock at the moment, pointing out that the event was being streamed live on DAZN, and kids could’ve been watching.

And it’s not just fans who are disapproving; Matchroom Boxing boss Eddie Hearn also had some strong words about the incident.

“My opinion is, I hate it,” Hearn told Boxing Social about Hemsley’s flashing incident.

“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. 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.”

Hemsley had a match lined up against Whitney Johns for the women’s losers bracket in the final show, but with her ban in place, it’s uncertain what will happen now.

Johns, who also clinched her first boxing win on the same night, might be left without an opponent.
