No. If you followed the heavyweight division as closely as I did at that time, you'd know Wilder was VERY carefully matched. I remember Kevin (who had never been stopped, not even by Vitali) and his words of frustration. They were feeding Wilder guys who were easy to knock out. And Wilder's boxing skills were so poor that he could have lost a decision to Johnson (after all, he was being out-boxed by the mediocre Szpilka). Let's not forget Wilder more recently turned down a highly lucrative unification fight with Joshua, and avoided his mandatory Whyte. And old inactive Stiverne should NEVER have been a mandatory in 2017. He hadn't fought in 2016, and in his previous fight against a journeyman in 2015 he was knocked down, looked poor and was gifted a decision. it's very likely Wilder's promoters have some kind of dodgy relationship with the WBC (We Be Crooks). Povetkin's positive test was nonsense, it was a microscopic small amount that could not have had any affect, and Wilder and his handlers used it as an excuse to avoid Povetkin.
