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.

"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."
