I'd agree with this. Still not a strong defense by Wlad and his last 4 defenses have been the low point of his title run. If he faces Povetkin in the summer than that makes up for a lot.
If he does face Pianeta now and Povetkin in the summer than that gives some of the young guys time to get atleast a fight or two in of their own. With another fight or two under their belts guys like Pulev, Helenius, Price, Mitchell, Boystov, Fury, Solis, etc should be ready to face Wlad late this year and come next year. With an aging Wlad and some good young guys getting ready Wlad's reign might get pretty interesting in a fight or two.
