Aaron Carter is holding his head up high after being knocked out by Lamar Odom.

The 33-year-old singer and rapper took to social media early Saturday morning (June 12) to share his post-fight positivity following his defeat by the former NBA star during a sold-out celebrity boxing match at the Showboat in Atlantic City on Friday night.

"I did my best. Fought like a lion," Carter tweeted alongside a brief clip from the short-lived bout. "He was huge. And at least I didn’t go in [there] like a p---y."

The 6-foot-10 Odom, 41, knocked out Carter, who is 10 inches shorter, in the first round of the fight, which was offered as a pay-per-view livestream on FITE.tv.

"I got punched in the throat so hard lol that s--t was so much fun!!!!" the singer tweeted. "I actually had a blast so y’all can say what you want. But I don’t see you at 6’ fighting a giant."

Ice-T and his wife Coco hosted the event, with former MMA star Chuck Liddell serving as the celebrity referee.

This edition of Official Celebrity Boxing was originally scheduled for last year, but was pushed to June 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The fight card also featured a match-up between hip-hop producer Cisco Rosado and rapper/producer Peter Gunz.
