Robert Helenius Has One Thing On His Mind After DQ Win Vs. Adam Kownacki
Robert Helenius isn’t thinking of who’s going to be his next fight.
Helenius (31-3, 20 KOs) told media at his post-fight press conference that he wants to go home to his family, and isn’t thinking about anything else.
“Right now, I want to go home to my family,” Helenius said. “I’ve been away from them for four weeks. Then we can worry about what’s next.”
The Finnish boxer dominated Polish rival Adam Kownacki (20-2, 15 KOs) Saturday night on the Fury-Wilder III undercard. This was a rematch fight, which Helenius previously won back in March 2020.
Helenius battered Kownacki throughout the bout Saturday night, causing his left eye to swell and close up.
It all came to an end after a DQ stoppage at 2:38 of the sixth round, just halfway through the scheduled fight. Kownacki landed another low blow, forcing the referee to halt the action with a disqualification.
Helenius told FIGHT SPORTS after the fight that he had been training for this second matchup for two years.
