Dillian Whyte might have just poked the bear as the British Heavyweight contender launched a verbal jab to WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder, inferring that the “Bronze Bomber” is not as intimidating as what he exhibits to be.

"I just believe there's something in me that he's seen, that I know, that's a problem for him," said Whyte to Sky Sports as reported by Boxing Scene.

The 31-year-old former kickboxing champion Whyte backed up his confidence by pointing out some of his fighting strengths and even went as far as mocking Deontay Wilder's antics and past source of living.

"Whether it's the body punches, or it's the tenacity, or it's just the sheer aggression that I will bring. I'm not scared of him. I won't be there laughing and doing all this 'Bomb Squad' stuff. He's just a tall basketball player from Alabama who used to work in McDonald's. He's not this street kid and this bad boy, he's none of that. That's just fake,” Whyte continued.

"What grown man goes around screaming when I shout 'Bomb Squad' I turn into my alter ego and someone else, that's nonsense."

Dillian Whyte captured the then-vacant WBC Interim Heavyweight title last July after beating Oscar Rivas via unanimous decision in England. The title, however, was immediately suspended after the WBC found out that Whyte failed a drug test conducted by UKAD in June.

According to the report, though, the Jamaica-born fighter will have to reserve his fighting tools for Wilder for a little longer as the latter is set to face Tyson Fury for a rematch in February next year. “Whyte will have to wait until at least February 2021 to pursue a mandatory shot.”

Right now, his eyes are set on Mariusz Wach whom he’ll be squaring against on Dec. 7 in Saudi Arabia as part of the Andy Ruiz-Anthony Joshua undercard.

"He's a very tough guy, very experienced. He's game and knows what this opportunity means, beating me, so I'm expecting a tough, strong Mariusz Wach, but obviously this is my time now," Whyte said of his next opponent.
