Dillian Whyte took aim at Deontay Wilder after the dethroned WBC champion vowed to gain revenge over Tyson Fury.
Wilder released a video on his Instagram addressing his fans a week on from his first pro defeat and it appears certain the American will call the immediate rematch with Fury.
A trilogy fight with Fury is expected to happen in the summer and Wilder promised he would come back stronger and regain his title.
Wilder posted the video to his social accounts and Whyte took a swipe at his rival by commenting ‘pathetic’.
While Eddie Hearn campaigns for three-belt champion Anthony Joshua to fight Fury next, Wilder has the right to trigger a third fight.
Bob Arum and Frank Warren do not expect Wilder to accept any step-aside money and the knockout artist told Fury ‘the war has just begun’ in his video.
‘Hello my people, my Bomb Squad army, my Bomb Squad nation, to all my loved ones around the world, I just want to let you know I am here,’ Wilder said.

‘Your king is here. And we ain’t going nowhere, for the war has just begun.
‘I will rise again. I am strong. I am a king, you can’t take my pride.
‘I am a warrior. I am a king that will never give up. I’m a king that will fight to the death.
‘And if anyone don’t understand that, don’t understand what it is to go to war, don’t understand what it is to fight, we will rise again. We will regain the title.
‘I will be back. We will hold our heads up high. Your king is in great spirit.
‘We will rise like a phoenix from the ashes and regain the title.
‘I’ll see you in a few months, for the war has just begun. All my love to all my people.’
