Who the **** asks him to stay THAT busy ? I mean I wouldn't mind if his next fight was in March against a decent opponent. It's his 27th fight after all. That being said a lot of fighters pad their records so it's not against Deontay himself.
He has to fight, he is learning on the job.

stfu
he is now in his 5th year as a pro.
there are a ton of fighters who had 35 or less amateur fights , so quit using that excuse, it sounds painfully cliche at this point.
what 26-0 (26 kos) heavyweight medalist has "very little" say in his career at this point? i call bullshit on that. you think he has no say that matters in who he fights at this point? his management team are apparently a bunch of clowns.

He has great management, far better management that Seth Mitchell and STiverne. LOL.

What happened to Mitchell is going to happen to Wilder once he fights someone capable.

Mayweather was boxing in the crib. Deontay Wilder started boxing when he was 18.

Actually Deontay only started at 20, within 2 years at age 22 he was at the olympics.

Better to stay busy you bunch of dicks!
Skelton's a solid opponent, not a fifty year old bum. Holds wins over Williams, Sprott x2, and McBride, and took Chagaev to a decision in a title fight. Past it now, but still a good test for any up and comer. He's also extremely hard to KO, and Price destroyed him.

Put Deontay in with someone like Jameel McCline or Sherman Williams and it would be a similar level of opponent. Even someone Demetrice King wouldn't be a bad test.

Matthew Greer isn't anywhere near that level in terms of threat, ranking or talent level.

Noting, in response to Clark, that Mayweather was boxing in the cradle and Wilder took it up as an adult.
