The 26-year-old American was largely dominated by Mayweather throughout their eight-round clash at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida, on Sunday.
However, boxing fans speculated that Mayweather might have knocked out the YouTube star after damning footage made the rounds on social media.
Mayweather, 44, landed a powerful right flush on Paul's face as his opponent appeared to be heading down to the canvas.
Paul remained on his feet as he leaned on Mayweather, but furious fans conjured conspiracy theories suggesting that Money 'held him up.'
The YouTuber-turned-boxer took to Instagram and broke his silence over the wild claims that Mayweather knocked him out in the fight.
Paul flatly denied that the former five-weight world champ held him up or knocked him out as he accused people of "trying to spin it."
Speaking in video clips uploaded to Instagram Stories, he explained: "I'm seeing this narrative going around that there's one part in the fight where Floyd punched me and I kind of leaned on him a little bit and it looks like I kind of went limp.
"People are trying to spin it and say he knocked me out and caught me and kept me up to keep the fight going to the eighth round.
"Shut the f**k up. Just shut the f**k up. Stop trying to discredit what happened last night.
"Make no mistake, he got a lot of good punches in. I got f****d up a couple of shots. I didn't know my face could make that shape.
"But never rocked, never blacked out, never obviously got knocked out. He didn't hold me up. He tried to take me out and he couldn't. It was great."
The YouTuber also called out boxing legend Mike Tyson over his fight prediction, saying that he has "made a list of everyone who said I'd lose this fight."
