Deontay Wilder and Robert Helenius made their first appearances in Brooklyn, New York.
The two heavyweights put their skills on display for the media workout —- kicking off fight week —- at Gleason’s Gym on Wednesday afternoon.
Helenius was the first of the two to come out for the workout.
The “Nordic Nightmare” said during a media scrum that if there’s one thing he’s learned from Tyson Fury, it’s how to fight against Wilder.
Wilder was the final fighter to show up at the event.
Some spectators, who crowded the ring as they watched Wilder do different workouts, voiced how impressed they were with the former WBC heavyweight champion.
Wilder later emphasized during the media scrum that he only plans to fight for three more years.
He told FIGHT SPORTS that, for his legacy, he wants to be remembered as a “true legend.”
The former sparring partners meet in the main event on Saturday at the Barclays Center.
