Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte is not buying the shoving match that took place on Wednesday, between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury at their final press conference.
Wilder will defend his WBC world title in a rematch with Fury on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Whyte, who holds the WBC's interim-title, is the mandatory challenger to Wilder-Fury winner.
Whyte believes the shoving match between the two boxers was staged.
He explains that Wilder and Fury were allowed to go face to face in a hostile manner, with zero security around them, for several minutes - before the shoving match even broke out - and even that wasn't exactly broken up in a rapid manner.
But, because of the shoving match the Nevada State Athletic Commission has barred the two boxers from facing off at Friday's weigh-in.
"Deontay Wilder is a good boy, he's not a bad man, he's just a bad actor," said Whyte to Sky Sports. "He's not a gangster, no matter how much he pretends. He is the son of a preacher brought up in a loving family with plenty of food on the table.
"Don't get me wrong, he can punch and he can box a little bit, but that's it. I'm not scared of him. I have been chasing Deontay Wilder for the longest of time. I've been fighting top contenders, risking my mandatory position, because I really want to get hold of him and do him some serious damage. I've been chasing and he's been running.
"It was a joke. If it was real, and it was two guys that hated each other and wanted to get each other, you would have security in between them. It's a pantomime, it's made up. It was really pathetic. Deontay Wilder is turning the WBC into WWE. Deontay Wilder is a joke, he's a liar and a fraud. If Deontay Wilder had pushed me like that, it would have been crazy. It would have been a mass brawl on the stage.
"If someone pushes you like that, two days before the fight, you have a go, but that's me. Deontay Wilder is not me."
