Remember he is not looking to go straight from Thompson in Wlad, it is a decent transition from where he is now to a top ten contender or 2 then to wlad.
A rated Euro level fighter would be a better choice. Boytsov ,Helenius or even Chorisa. Thompson wont be a test for him. He might as well be still in the amatures the way he is going. Fury and Chorisa are younger and less experienced but have better records by miles. From what i can see, they are lacking major confidance in his camp.
