Ichigo technically never beat Kenpachi in the first place. The only reason Ichigo walked away the victor was because Kenpachi literally declared him so. On every one of their charges, Ichigo was the first to fall, and the first to lose consiousness.

Kenpachi clearly had Ichigo outmatched their entire fight.
I DO agree with the Kenpachi/Tousen argument more or less, however. If Tousen had just aimed for Kenpachi's neck or head, it might not have lasted that long. However, there's no way of telling how Kenpachi would have reacted the moment he felt the blade touch the flesh of his neck. His reaction speed was shown to be top-notch upon feeling the blade connect with his flesh. He might very well have stopped the blade from digging into his neck the moment he felt it by either grabbing the blade with his hand, or simply shifting his body for it to cut a different part of his face or shoulder.
