AMIR KHAN hit out at Floyd Mayweather for failing to knock out Logan Paul and blasted ‘it looked bad’ for the boxing legend.

Paul, who outweighed Mayweather by TWO STONE, claimed a surprise moral victory at the start of June as he survived the full eight rounds.

As there was no knockout scored, the YouTuber technically avoided defeat in the extraordinary exhibition bout.

Former world champion Khan, who for years chased a fight with Mayweather to no prevail, was left shaking his head.

He told Last Stand Podcast: “I’m not really a big fan of that exhibition thing.

“No disrespect to Floyd or the other fighters that are doing that, but I just think it’s not good for the sport of boxing.

“People are not taking boxing seriously and boxing’s a sport where, the time they are going to start taking it seriously is when someone gets badly hurt.

“We just don’t want that to happen and I think it would be quite tarnishing for boxing if God forbid a YouTuber got knocked out by a professional fighter.

“You can’t really compare the two. I would never do that because I would be scared to hurt someone and if you hurt an influencer and you are the fighter that people always respected, you’re going to lose that respect.

“Really, you shouldn’t be sharing the ring with that person. Floyd did it a couple of weeks ago in Miami other day against Logan Paul.

“He couldn’t hurt Logan and it looked bad for him. Him being a trained professional fighter for many years, whereas Logan came, put his gloves on and went in the ring.

“A lot of people said Floyd didn’t look the same. Really, he got more bad comments than he got good comments in that fight.

“Did he really need the money? No. We don’t think he does.

“But going into that fight he got a lot more hate because he couldn’t knock out a guy who’s worse than a journeyman basically.”
