Tommy Fury was unimpressed by Jake Paul's performance before he landed a vicious knockout on Tyron Woodley on Saturday night.
Fury was supposed to fight Paul at the Amalie Arena in Florida, but was forced to pull out of the pay-per-view fight due to a rib injury.
Former UFC welterweight champion Woodley stepped in on short notice to face the YouTube star for a second time, having taken him to a tight decision in August.
But it was a decisive finish for the YouTube star in his fifth professional fight, who mocked Fury for pulling out of the event with his ring walk gear.
"I think it's a pretty bad place to be in when the commentators are saying it's hard to watch," Fury said in an interview with the Queensberry Promotions YouTube page.
"They were joking around, when someone asked 'who won that round?' They'd say nobody!
"That went on for well more than half the fight and I was just watching it and it was very upsetting for me to sit there and watch it."
And Fury didn't think that Paul's stoppage was all that impressive, given that Woodley made a mistake in the lead-up that allowed him to land cleanly.
It remains to be seen if the pair will fight next, although Fury has insisted that he is ready to take on Paul when he recovers from his injury and illness.
"It was a terrible, terrible fight," Fury continued. "And I think everybody's forgot the first five rounds anyway because they're going straight to the knockout.
"Yeah, it was what it was, a nice punch, but what do you expect off a 14-stone guy when you put your hands down? What do you expect?"
And Fury believes that Woodley's lack of training camp was another factor, given that he only had two weeks to prepare for the fight due to the lateness of the Brit's pull out.

The Love Island star was officially taken out of the fight by his doctor two weeks out from the event, meaning Woodley only had a matter of days to prepare to face Paul in just his second boxing match
"Let's be honest, Tyron Woodley wasn't in full training camp because I pulled out of the fight quite close to it so he wouldn't have had much notice.
"If that's Jake Paul training for months and months and months to fight me then f***ing hell, it's going to be an easy night for me when it happens."
Fury has said that he would like to make the rescheduled fight in March, assuming he has returned from his rib injury in time.
He is currently working with his promotional team at Queensberry Promotions to rearrange a date, with Frank Warren saying yesterday that he wants to make the fight after Paul said there had been no contact made.
