Robert Helenius has a plan for Saturday.
Helenius said that he’s going to use the Tyson Fury strategy when he meets former WBC heavyweight champion and sparring partner Deontay Wilder in the main event at the Barclays Center.
“I can’t give away too much, but he showed the key how to unlock,” Helenius said during Wednesday’s media scrum.
Helenius landed in Brooklyn, New York and put on a media workout at the historic Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn.
Helenius, who previously sparred with Fury in 2008 and 2009, got a step closer to a heavyweight title shot after overcoming Adam Kownacki two fights in a row.
The “Nordic Nightmare” scored one of his wins against Kownacki on the undercard of Fury-Wilder III last October.
He previously told FIGHT SPORTS during a virtual press conference that he doesn’t mind being the underdog because it helps him focus better.
“I’m really happy to get this opportunity, of course. I’ve been training and boxing for 25 years, and I’ve had my ups & downs. I feel like everything is connecting, and that’s why I’m here,” Helenius added.
