I would have him fight...
A) Taurus Sykes 25-7 (with 7 KOs)...lost 6 of his last 8 (including fighter to Potvetkin, Rahman, Seth Mitchell, and Sam Peter).
B) Nicolai Firth 19-8 (with 8 KOs)...Lost 4 of last 7 (including Potvetkin)
C) 39 year old Derek Bryant 20-6-1 with 17 KOs...a southpaw who lost his last 2 fights to Seth Mitchell and Jason Estrada.
D) If you really want to push him...Jason Estrada 16-4 with 4 KOs. Lost 3 of last 4.

I would love to see him against Monte Barrett. A young American Olympian against an experienced but old fighter. It would be a huge step up for Wilder but he got the power.
