Is the Mangalica a wild boar and not a pig?

The woolly boar is raised in farms for high quality ham, but the piglets resemble more a wild boar piglet than a farm pig. Are this animals more closely related to wild boar than other pigs?

    The Mangalica was originally a hybrid between Hungarian domestic pigs and the Eurasian wild boar.

    "Boar" actually means "male pig," though it also refers to males of some other species too.

    The "California wild boar" is nothing more than domestic pigs that have become feral.
