If you keep on fighting sh1tty opposition then you're reinforcing that you aren't ready. FFS, Wilder was Wlads chief sparring partner. If you can hang with the real hw champion of the world, even though it's sparring, you're ready to fight a decent opponent.
Regardless of their backgrounds Bryant Jennings is much further along skill wise than Wilder is. I don't care to get into the why or how it came to be that way.

I don't see why everyone is so worked up about this fight in particular. Povetkin just let Rahman fight for a world title, something Wilder is a solid 2 years away from himself. So is Wilder the problem? Or world champs like Povetkin?

Sparring is one thing. Sparring with Wlad was probably good for Wilder because Wlad is too nice to hurt him badly.

All I know is i've watched Wilder enough times to see he is not ready for a legit Top-20 opponent. The people who are clamoring hardest for it to happen are those that want it to happen only to see him lose.

If they fought today Bryant Jennings would knock Wilder out inside 3 rounds. It wouldn't even be competitive. So I don't see any reason they should be fighting the exact same level of competition.
