He doesn't have a belt, isn't a champ, and is correctly being moved along slowly so he can hone his craft.

The butt hurt about him is really confusing, because there is no talk or hype around him.
once you finally take a step up in your 26th fight, why must the guy take 10 steps backwards by fighting a bum like this in your 27th? yeah i know..stay busy, no amateur fights, ect ect ect YAWN

Surely, surely, after four years as a pro Wilder should be above fighting guys like Greer. Surely he's past the part of his career where he has to take "stay-busy" fights just to learn the intricacies of boxing.

He's had 7 fights in 2009, 6 fights in 2010, 6 fights in 2011 and 6 fights in 2012, most of which were against guys of a similar level to Greer, so it's hardly going to be a learning experiance for him.

And Wilder does have a belt. He won the WBC Continental Americas Heavyweight Title by beating Price. As the holder of this belt - though it may not be a big one it has some history having been around since the 1970's - he doesn't have to take "stay busy" fights and he should be looking to fight at a higher level, he should be looking to push on to the top fighters in his country, not fighting just to keep occupied.

he doesn't have to fight at all. It's been one damn month since the Price fight. Why roast him for this fight when it's only been a month later. If he didn't fight for another 4 months and then this Greer fight came up, then it would be no good.

Deontay is still trying to learn how to fight as a pro. He just now, after 4 years got his balance down in the ring. He needs activity and rounds and he is getting them. The Price fight was a great fight

There's a reason for this. He's got a glass jaw, and his handlers know it.
I'm impressed to hell that there's a guy with 40,000 posts on a message board, more than 35,000 of which say the same thing over and over.

When you gonna expand and step up your game?

Price fights a 50 year old bum named Skelton and he is the next champ,Wilder fights a guy like Greer who many top fighters fought and he's a bum.
Better to stay busy you bunch of dicks!

Many heavyweights fought Greer as a test.

Oh I forgot,Wilder has to fight only top 5 fighters or he's a bum.

Forget the fact that Helenius has faced 1 decent fighter (Chisora and he lost)

Fury only fought one decent guy (Chisora)

Boytsov,9 years as a pro hasnt faced anyone of note.

Price,hasnt yet faced anyone

Arreola,fought Walker 100 years ago

Is everyone living in a fantasy? To be a contender these days,all you have to do is beat a few bums and have t hands.

hella disapointing choice...... i thought being on showtime and stepping up a bit last time meant there was no going back. i love watching wilder but he needs to test himself agaist someone decent. top 50 type at least

is it asking too much for his shitty management to plan his career a little better? granted it has only been a month since his last fight, but this fight is garbage enough that they should have something lined up afterwards worthy of a guy who will be 27-0 (27 KOs) and holder of a bronze medal. but they dont and thats the sad part.
