The next fight for Robert “The Nordic Nightmare” Helenius is a long-awaited heavyweight rematch against Dereck Chisora from the UK.
The fight will take place in the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki on 27 May. The WBC Silver Heavyweight World title will be up for grabs in May and the winner will become an official contender for Deontay Wilder’s world title.
“I have been looking forward to this match for a very long time. One of my hands was injured the last time, but in May I will prove who’s the king of the castle using my two good hands,” says Helenius.
Helenius’ trainer Johan Lindström adds that this is a great opportunity to shut Chisora up once and for all.
A fighter who goes the distance
Chisora is known for being a dogged boxer and he’s had lots of tough fights in his career. The Brit’s latest fight against Dillian Whyte lasted 12 rounds and Whyte came out on top on points.
“Chisora’s boxing technique is abrasive and he punches in volume. So I will have to throw a lot of punches and make sure that my footwork is strong,” adds Helenius.
