He wrote: "Anyone who really knows me, knows I wouldn't go back and forth with anybody UNLESS it's in the Ring!
"I've been boxing since I was eight years old. So I didn't give a big portion of my life to the sport, I DEDICATED MY ENTIRE LIFE TO THIS SPORT!
"But I have never seen the things I'm seeing now in ALL of those years!
"I'm only on social media because of my girl.
"We went somewhere and there was a picture of me and she said, 'This is one of the reasons you need social media in this day and time.'
"She said, 'There are people who have deep admiration for you and social media is a way to give them some access to you.'
"She asks me all the time am I tired of it? Do I want to go back to life without it?
"I always say no because the amount of support, love and gratitude I get let's me know all the hard work I put into my career was worth it!
"I looked at and read thousands of videos texts and comments and I would put up a thousand of them if I could because so many of them was [100 emoji] [flexed biceps emoji] but I can't.
"But I do have a file for ALL of them that moved me. I THANK ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR WORDS!
"Let me add this last. The Twitter pic that's out there is not from me. It's not how I speak and there's nothing funny about this show that's going on!
"Stay well & I'm still standing!"
