Darren Till didn’t like what he saw from Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal in the ring.

Diaz defeated Masvidal by majority decision in their boxing match Saturday at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. The back-and-forth fight exceeded many expectations but not Till’s.

Till is interested in boxing Diaz next but also wants Jake Paul, Mike Perry, and even Masvidal if offered.

“I wasn’t impressed, mate,” Till said on “The MMA Hour.” “Just like, fluffy hands. Just not a lot of power, both looked like they wasn’t in no fit physical shape. But as I say, Masvidal I fought, and he beat me fair and square.

“I don’t ever like to diss Diaz too much. I’ve always been a fan since a kid. I think he’s a f*cking G of the sport. He’s one of your real ones. Whether you want it in the ring or outside, he’s that guy, and that’s what I respect.”

Originally scheduled to box Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in July, Till wound up lacing up the gloves himself on Saturday when he faced Mohammad Mutie at Social Knockout 3 from Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai.

Their bout came to an end when Till hit Mutie with a rabbit punch to the back of the head. Mutie fell to the canvas, prompting the referee and doctor to deem him unable to continue. Till was announced the winner by TKO, but a brawl broke out after the fight.
