Tony Bellew has told his rival Nathan Cleverly that he will take a rematch with the WBO light-heavyweight champion "in his back garden" if that's what it takes to get a shot at revenge.

Bellew is still seething after losing his unbeaten record in a controversial defeat to the Welshman in October of last year, but bounced back on Friday night with a thorough demolition of Danny McIntosh to defend his British crown.

Bellew now wants another shot at Cleverly - calling him out in the aftermath of his latest win.

"I'll fight him tomorrow, I'll fight him in Wales," Bellew said. "Hey, I'll fight him in his back garden. I still consider myself an unbeaten fighter."
