Helenius Predicts Knockout Against Whyte
On October 28th, Robert Helenius looks to ruin the world title hopes of Dillian Whyte as they fight on the undercard of the Anthony Joshua and Carlos Takam fight in Cardiff.
Helenius and Whyte who battle for the WBC silver heavyweight title, both know that victory on Saturday night will be major step towards WBC king Deontay Wilder.
Whyte has made it no secret that he wants to be the next in line for Wilder, following his November 4th fight against Bermane Stiverne. Whyte also wants to face off with his old nemesis from the amateur and pro ranks, Anthony Joshua, but Helenius is looking to stop to make those fights nothing more than a mere fantasy as Whyte lays down on the mat unconscious.
In an interview hyping up the undercard bout, Helenius is more than confident.
“I will definitely win by knockout… He will definitely fall. I know it will be a tough fight, but it will be a tough fight for Dillian more than it will be for me, and it will be a loss on his record, that’s it. I hope he stands and fights with me and doesn’t run, as his reputation suggests.
“This is my fight, not his, and I do not care about Whyte or what he does well. I have seen his fight with Joshua, where he was knocked out, and he will suffer a similar defeat when he steps in with me. Make no mistake, I am coming to the UK to conquer!
Whyte is not the only fighter looking to get into the heavyweight fray as Helenius is looking towards the top two boxers in the division.
“This fight will assist me in getting a World title shot. I want a fight with Wilder, I know I can KO him and I will KO him if I get the fight with him. In my opinion Joshua is the best of the current heavyweight champions. Of course I want to fight him also.”
