Later on, Hemsley apologised in an interview with Fred Talks Boxing, as she said: “I got a bit overwhelmed, I just wanted to express myself.”

And promoter Eddie Hearn was less than impressed, telling Boxing Social: “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.”

And it seems boxing fans agree with Hearn, as one commented: “What the hell was that at the end? Got her t*** out and dancing around… Meanwhile they have to apologise for swearing.”

And another added: “Hope she realises whats the age demographic of crossover boxing is.”

Claressa Shields, who has held titles in three weight divisions agreed with Hearn. Reacting to a post on Twitter, she wrote: “Wow….. this is a step backwards for women’s boxing. Stop this s***.”

Elle Brooke is one influencer boxer who is stepping away from the entertainment event.

“I plan to take some time away from the gym, focus on creating content and travelling for a while, then come back when there is a fight that makes sense,” she said in a Twitter post after her loss to Jully Poca.

“Plus I need to get back down to my natural weight.”
