RICKY HATTON has criticised the arrangement of a bout between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, despite being an admirer of both fighters.

It was announced earlier in the week that 40-year-old former multi-weight world champion Mayweather would come out of retirement to put his 49-0 record on the line against mixed martial arts champion McGregor in Las Vegas on August 26.

The Irishman has never boxed and critics have questioned the integrity of a contest against one of the sport’s all-time greats.
