Reynolds wrote on Instagram: 'Doing it on a cold Wednesday night in Stoke is easy.... what I wanna know is can you do it in Air Force ones with a tennis ball @marcusrashford.
'Keeper and defender needed for a new start up 5 a side team in Sheffield. Keeper must own gloves and can't be scared to dive on a concrete pitch. Defender must be willing to wash the kit every other week @marcusrashford @anthonyjoshua.'

'They think he's so great, so when I beat him I want everybody to bow to my feet and tell me how great I am.
'I couldn't beat Ruiz Jr before and get the credit I deserved. You saw me in the ring [before the fight] - I wasn't fighting King Kong, was I? I didn't have that mindset.
'Apparently I'm fighting the quickest hands and the best fighter in the division. So once I beat him I want everybody to bow to me.'
