Evidently, they aren't willing to do this.
I don't think so. There are plenty of tough journeymen who'd be more than willing to step in with Wilder for a relative pittance. These guys would take him rounds and give him an arena in which to properly test out his skills. Guys like Dominick Guinn or Sherman Williams. Not massive names, but guaranteed to stick in there longer than four rounds at the least. Who knows, even take him to a points decision!
He needs to be willing to lose his worthless 100% KO ratio in order to improve. Putting him in with no hopers at this stage is becoming detrimental.
