BOXING fans and industry insiders were left sickened by the SEVEN-SECOND KO Seniesa Estrada scored over novice Miranda Adkins.
It is the fastest knockout ever in women’s boxing – but viewers were disgusted the fight ever took place.

Estrada, 28, strolled into the contest with an 18-0 record and an impressive seven stoppages at light-flyweight.
Adkins, 42, had enjoyed four wins against local Kansas debutants before rematching a girl to score her fifth.
Estrada, who had previously split an opponent’s forehead open, walked across the ring at the first bell and fired seven unanswered shots at her woefully over-matched victim.
Miranda, who only started boxing aged 40, collapsed to the canvas – her head narrowly missing the bottom rope – and then fight was thankfully waved off.
Broadcasters DAZN, promoters Golden Boy and the WBA sanctioning body celebrated the fastest win in women’s boxing history.
But respected boxing names, led by legendary trainer Russ Abner, led the protests at the horrible farce of a contest.
Abner wrote on Instagram: “In my 40+ years in this game, I have seen some terrible s***.
Estrada was 18-0 coming into this. Her opponent, Miranda Adkins, is 42 with a total of five pro fights.
The result? A seven-second KO. Scary to think this could have been even worse. https://t.co/7c2jW5qEqe
That was hard to watch, I’m glad Miranda Adkins seems OK but she didn’t know how to defend herself the moment the bell rang. Way over her head against a killer like Seniesa Estrada
“However, this ranks up there as one of the most sickening, disgusting things I have ever seen.
“Whoever was responsible for sending that poor, helpless woman into the ring should be tried for premeditated assault!
“You should be ashamed of yourselves. May this vision haunt you for the rest of your lives! You are disgusting!
“I am sickened and embarrassed for boxing! Who the f* let this happen!?? F***s all of you!”
Shame on @GoldenBoyBoxing for putting Estrada in with Adkins! Terrible for the sport, that poor woman had no business being in there with Estrada.
Former WBO cruiserweight king Enzo Maccarinelli wrote: “Terrible mismatch.”
Respected boxing writer Kevin Iole said: “It was one of the worst things I have ever seen. This woman belonged nowhere near Seniesa Estrada.
“That was DISGUSTING.”
Estrada said afterwards: “I give Adkins so much credit because she stood up and took the fight.
“Due to the Covid situation we tried to get current champions, former champions, and Miranda was the only one who stepped in to take the fight.
“I had more experience than her in the professionals and amateurs, so I let my punches go and couldn’t stop.
“I knew the outcome would be a knockout for sure, but didn’t know how long it would take. God bless Adkins and hope she is OK.”
