The Book of Piece, rule 7, states that "If two Black Holes are
adjacent, the most recently created one is destroyed." Thus, if you
were to make a Black Hole at J4, that hole would be destroyed, and not
mine. Your move thus has an incorrect board position attached. And
I'll be nice and choose to reject your move and give you another
chance, rather than just gobble up your piece.

Look a little later in the rule: If a black hole is both adjacent to an older one and within two squares of an interdictor, the older one is destroyed, and counts as having been destroyed by the newer one.

Mine is within two squares of the Interdictor at H5, and so consumes yours rather than the other way around.
