Dillian Whyte says he’s not scared of Deontay Wilder as return to ring is announced on Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr rematch undercard

Dillian Whyte has mocked WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder after his return to the ring was confirmed earlier this week.

Whyte will face Mariusz Wach on the Andy Ruiz Jr vs Anthony Joshua II undercard, at the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia on December 7

The British heavyweight has not fought since earning a gritty points win over Oscar Rivas in July at London’s O2 to claim the WBC interim title.

While it was thought Whyte would be mandatory to face Wilder in 2020, the WBC revealed at a convention in October that he would not challenge for that belt until February 2021.

Whyte no doubt, would have watched Wilder earned a emphatic seventh round knockout win of Luis Ortiz to retain his belt for the 10th time.

However, the ‘Bodysnatcher’ insists he is not intimidated by the unbeaten Wilder’s fearsome power.

“I’m not scared of him,” Whyte said in an interview with Sky. “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.

“What grown man goes around screaming, ‘when I shout “Bomb Squad” I turn into my alter ego and someone else’ – that’s nonsense.”

Alexander Povetkin has also been confirmed for the Ruiz Jr vs Joshua undercard, where he will face Michael Hunter. Filip Hrgovic vs Eric Molina and Mahammadrasul Majidov vs Tom Little have also been confirmed, while Diego Pacheco and Hopey Price will fight, though they are waiting for their opponents to be announced.
