Tony Bellew has opened up on his clash with Jermaine Franklin's trainer Lorenzo Reynolds after the American was beaten by Anthony Joshua last night - insisting he 'didn't want trouble'.

After the final bell rang in Joshua's unanimous victory over Franklin, the boxers engaged in a bizarre altercation before their respective corners - and then security - were forced to intervene.

Reynolds was involved as he tried to accost Joshua after the bout. This then led to the trainer having an altercation with Bellew, working for DAZN, before the BBC's Steve Bunce was forced to intervene before it could get ugly.

And following the incident, Bellew slammed Reynolds's behaviour and revealed he threatened to 'meet him with a right hand' after he had grabbed Joshua post-fight.
