Chisora: I'm Not Worried About Helenius or His Power

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

DERECK CHISORA hopes his punching power can help him land the vacant European heavyweight ­title in Helsinki tonight.

The Londoner meets unbeaten Robert Helenius, with the Finn a clear favourite.

They meet on a bill headlined by WBA world heavyweight champ ­Alexander Povetkin defending his title against Cedric Boswell.

British eyes will be on Chisora, who has lost just one of his 16 fights and fancies his chances against ‘The Nordic Nightmare’.

Helenius, 27, has won all of his 16 bouts but Chisora said: “I am not worried about him or his punching power.

“He should be worried about MY punching power.

“This is the fighting game we are in and he doesn’t like to work. I am going to make him work.”

Chisora beat Remigijus Ziausys over eight rounds last month – his first fight since losing his British and Commonwealth titles to ­Tyson Fury in July.

But he will have his work cut out against Helenius, who has knocked out 10 of his last 11 opponents.

Among those who hit the canvas were former world champions Siarhei Liakhovich, Samuel Peter and Lamon Brewster.

It’s a big task for Finchley ­puncher Chisora, 27, but he is convinced he can cause a massive upset in ­Finland’s capital.

He said: “I’m surprised Helenius’ people wanted me to fight their ­unbeaten golden boy. They must be going on my last fight and think I’m easy pickings.

“Believe me, this is the biggest mistake they have made with his career and I’ll be going over to ­Finland to knock him clean out.

“He’s called the Nordic Nightmare, but he’ll be having nightmares about me for the rest of his life ­after I’ve left him flat out.

“I’ll be fit and ready for this fight like never before. It’s the big fight I need to really get my juices flowing and performing like I know I can.”

PREDICTION: Chisora has plenty of heart but I just can’t see him doing it tonight. I’m taking Helenius to win late on.
