Right. That's why they've matched him with a fighter that has 13 KO's in his 15 wins.
Let us know if/when you ever find a clue!
Greer is probably the best opponent they could find, in the "second tier" category, who would actually agree to fight Wilder. Wilder is still a "high risk / low reward" opponent. He needs a few more spectacular wins, on network TV, before better fighters will "have" to face him.
Plus, of course, he still needs more experience. Greer, sad to say, is at least a step up. He might be a good test of Wilder's still mainly-untested defense, at least for a few rounds.
