They need to stop pampering their fighter; Deontay is capable of beating higher level opponents than the Mccrearys of the boxing world. He needs to be fighting guys like Vinny Maddalone. He's ready for this level at this juncture...

I'm one of Wilder's biggest supporters here but I'm disappointed by this kind of opponent.
There are two different things, he isn't above legitimate criticism but lots of people have been on his ass for a couple years when anybody with a decent boxing eye could tell you he was several years away, and most of the dudes complaining here are from that group.

He is looking more like a real fighter though so wanting him to see him fight a bit better opposition is getting more reasonable but as it sits now a bit better opposition is still getting knocked out by him as guys that can really take his power or defuse him are high end and they won't put him in there with guys like that so finding a real challenge for him is not an easy task.

I still believe the most important thing to Wilder is staying in the gym, honing his craft and filling out his frame a bit, the fights keep him paid and break up the monotony of the gym but pretty soon it will be time to really challenge himself. Usually a prospect needs to get tested to expose their flaws thus giving them more to work on, but Wilder had so many flaws from the jump they didn't even need to do that, even though he has been knocking dudes out easily and not challenged much really he has improved a great deal. Eventually they will need to put him to the test though to see if it all worked and if they missed anything to improve going forward, but as long as Wilder is working hard in the gym and still improving that point doesn't "need" to get made real soon.

Plus he could fight two more times this year so I don't see the need to get hung up on this one fight which should be a walkover for Wilder.
