The son of Brit legend Ricky found it tough going against the 29-year-old, winning on points 58-57 after six rounds.

The Mancunian admitted he was ‘not happy’ with his performance – and neither were fans.

One called it ‘genuinely one of the biggest robberies I’ve witnessed in my life’.

And another called it a ‘disgraceful decision’, claiming Hatton Jr ‘got beat all day there’.

However, dad Ricky leapt to his son’s defence on social media, telling him to ignore keyboard warriors after they enjoyed a bonding session watching Manchester City in the Champions League.

Speaking after his fight on the undercard of Anthony Joshua’s defeat to Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday, Campbell said: “I am not happy with my performance, I am a lot better than that.

“The opponent was a lot better than anyone I have fought before.
