Last week, former two division world champion Ricky Hatton expressed his fury over the exhibition clash between Floyd Mayweather and Youtube star Logan Paul, which took place on Sunday at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.

Mayweather, 44-years-old and a five division world champion, went the full eight round distance with Paul.

Most had expected Mayweather to end the fight, at some point, with the 26-year-old Paul only having a single fight on his record - which was a split decision loss to Youtube rival KSI.

Mayweather retired from boxing in August of 2017, when he stopped UFC star Conor McGregor in ten rounds.

Both Mayweather and Paul are expected to make a tremendous amount of money from their pay-per-view encounter.

Hatton, who was knocked out by Mayweather in 2007, was not pleased with the spectacle.

He's not happy that someone like Paul, due to his massive following on social media, was able to secure the opportunity to fight an athlete like Mayweather.

"[What the f---] was all this about? What happened to the days where fighters would put their lives on the line to try be the best and at least fight the best," Hatton stated on social media.

"Now we have fighters calling out YouTubers as that's where the most money is these days due to the social media world we live in??? I can live with an exhibition like [what] Mike [Tyson] and Roy [Jones Jr] did between two legends of our sport.

"But the greatest fighter of all time, who has only recently retired, against somebody who's only there because of how many followers he has and not because of who he's previously beat???  Money is important that's why we went from the amateurs and turned pro. But these days money seems more important than the legacy.

"Floyd and Logan, hey every man to their own. Good luck to both. My personal opinion that was sh!t for boxing."
