From the opening bell Adkins tentaively took a few steps forwards and then froze.
She was met by a barrage of punches from Estrada which left her out cold.
Broadcaster DAZN uploaded the clip of the KO to social media, where it was met by dismay from various fight figures.
Why do we have a paid commission, if dangerous mismatches like the Estrada – Adkins fight on DAZN are sanctioned? Why not just do it in street or backyard? Concussions have no preference. Bad! https://t.co/5tWn6OH0jy

Famed trainer Teddy Atlas asked: Why do we have a paid commission, if dangerous mismatches like the Estrada – Adkins fight on DAZN are sanctioned?
“Why not just do it in street or backyard? Concussions have no preference. Bad!”
Former super-middleweight title challenger Paul Smith added: “This is disgusting.”
And Joe Joyce’s manager Sam Jones branded the bout a ‘disgace’.
Who tf sanctioned this? No footwork, no head movement, and didn’t even attempt to block a single punch. SMH pic.twitter.com/u86iRnaGgQ

Against what looks like, some poor woman who doesn’t know how to even box. This is disgusting.
