There is only one breed that has earned the right to be called a pit bull and that is the American Pit Bull Terrier. If you do not know the history behind your dog, and you do not KNOW what he is, calling him a pit bull is not correct.
I get called out on saying my pup is a boxer/lab/pit mix. I usually just say mutt and get the response "he looks like a full pit." in which I reply "and what exactly does that look like?" lol. The best are people who dont want to say that so they say "oh my, he looks so muscular..." which I already know where that is going...
