“A dream fight”

Robert Helenius will meet Dillian Whyte at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday 28 October. Dillian Whyte is ranked higher than Helenius on all the ranking lists and Whyte will also have a lot of support behind him among the 70,000 British people in the national stadium of Wales.

“It’s good for him that it’s like that. But by the end of the fight the audience will be on my side,” says Robert Helenius.

WBC silver title up for grabs

The boxing match in Cardiff takes place on the same bill as the British world number one Anthony Joshua’s world championship title match against the Frenchman Carlos Takam. Helenius’ fight against Whyte will be the evening’s second biggest match with a WBC silver title up for grabs.

“It’s clearly a dream fight and that we have now reached a level where we are being offered this kind of match is really great. Of course, the fight will be close but Robert hasn’t been taking it easy. He’s been preparing for this match for 17 years,” says Helenius’ trainer Johan Lindström.

Title fight against Joshua or Wilder

This Helenius bout is very significant for his future ranking and chances of getting a World Championship title fight.

“If I win this fight I’ll be high up in all the association ranking lists and the silver title will mean that Deontay Wilder will have to challenge me soon enough,” says Helenius.

“We even have a verbal offer that Helenius can fight Anthony Joshua if he wins the fight against Dillian Whyte,” adds Helenius‘ manager, Markus Sundman.

“The fight odds are wrong”

Paf will be offering extra odds on the fight including live odds during the fight. At the moment, Whyte is the favourite to beat Helenius.

“It is good that the odds are against me, because it means everyone can win a lot by betting on me to win,” says Helenius.

“The fight odds are wrong. Which world number ones has Whyte knocked out? Nobody,” says Johan Lindström.

“Chisora was Whyte’s best match and Robert beat Chisora with only one good hand. And they both won thanks to the judges’ votes,” says Robert’s father Karl Helenius.
