Pianeta is a 28 year old, undefeated, 6' 5", southpaw. Is he the best possible opponent?, certainly not, I would prefer Pulev, Helenius, or Boytsov, but he is perfectly reasonable for Klitschko to defend against.
I'm going beyond that. I'm saying it doesn't even need defending. Johnson would have been crucified had he not took the Jeffries fight.
I just rate wlad higher than you do because I see pianeta as his worst opponent in about a decade.
