"I was so happy that Whyte got his a*** knocked the f**k out," the Mexican-American said.

"You know what, because he doesn't have respect for the fighters - that's what gets me p***ed off."

Whyte, meanwhile, is set to rematch Povetkin after promoter Eddie Hearn revealed that they have a rematch clause in place.

Speaking after his show, he said: "We have a rematch clause. First thing Dillian said when he came out was, 'Get me that rematch, get me that rematch.'

"We will exercise that rematch clause, we will look to make that before the end of the year.

"And listen, it's a huge fight. it's a very dangerous fight now because obviously back-to-back defeats for Dillian Whyte throws a very different shade on it.

"But I know that he'll come back from this."
