DILLIAN WHYTE hilariously compared heavyweight rival Deontay Wilder to Borat after mocking his dodgy English accent.
The American was speaking to the press when he was mentioning talks about a potential scrap with Anthony Joshua.
Wilder, from Alabama, went off on a tangent and suddenly switched to a Brit accent when he said: “They wanted to stay over in England.
“The fans in England believe they deserve the fight there.”
And Brit Whyte wasted little time in throwing a dig towards the 33-year-old.
Uploading a clip of his rival’s speech, it would suddenly cut to fictional character Borat mimicking a British person.
Alongside the video was the caption: “What an absolute weapon. #TOOL #COMPLETETOOL”
He wasn’t the only person to mock him on social media.
One person commented: “I’d like to know which part of the UK he has been visiting.”
Another added: “It’s like Downton Abbey meets TOWIE.”
Wilder has drawn widespread criticism for lining up an underwhelming fight with Dominic Breazeale this weekend.
But he has promised fans a scrap with Joshua if negotiations are handled without the media circus.

He said: “I want to be able to get in the ring and fight, you know, and give the people what they want, but I think how this is really going to happen – when everything goes silent.
“There’s too many people that’s involved in this. There’s too many media, fans, everybody. The thing about people, everybody got an opinion about how it should go, this should go this way, this should go that way.
“It’s like with the Tyson Fury fight, nobody knew that fight was going to happen. Kept it silent for a reason, and then all of a sudden it came out.”
