Peter or Rahman would be a good test for him but I don't think he's ready for Chambers, Arreola, Adamek(if he decides to keep fighting) or any of the other middle of the road HW contenders.
For now a Peter and above fight would be too much for him. I would put him in with Peter, Helenius and the like at about the fourth stage. Rahman may be a good journeyman fight for him... perhaps even on the third rung where we speak about the over-bloated contenders. Point's 3 and 3 can be interchangeable depending on your management style, where you see Perez going, etc etc...
