Chisora: I'm Sorry to Finnish Fans, Helenius is Going Down!

Dereck Chisora (15-1, 9 KOs) and WBA/WBO Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion Robert Helenius (16-0, 11 KOs) will collide for the vacant European Heavyweight Title in Helsinki on December 3. Boxing-online.com has caught up with the 27-year-old British fighter who is convinced he will knock out “The Nordic Nightmare” in front of his Finnish fans.

Q: Dereck, why will you leave the ring as the winner on December 3?

DC: “Because I'm back to my best. Nobody will beat me when I'm at my best.”

Q: What do you think about fighting in front of 12,000 wild Finnish fans?

DC: “No worries at all. The more the better, the crowd against me will really spur me on to win. I'll be a bigger hit in Finland than Nokia!”

Q: You said in an interview with the Finnish press that you plan "to make love to Helenius" in the ring. What do you mean by that?

DC: “Take that how you like it, I'll make him mine on December 3.”

Q: What makes you so confident of success?

DC: “I've got to win or I have nowhere to go. Everything is on the line in this fight so I have to win to continue in my career and get a world title fight.”

Q: What are Helenius´ weaknesses?

DC: “He's a good strong fighter and I'm looking forward to testing myself against him. I know whenever I hit someone clean they will go. So I look forward to seeing how his chin holds up.”

Q: Helenius has knocked out three former world champions. Are you scared of his punching power?

DC: “All heavyweights can bang, we're big men, but its if you can take it and fire back. I'll be in front of him all night long throwing bombs.”

Q: What do you think of Helenius´ personality?

DC: “I don't know the guy, I'll shake his hand after the fight. It's all business in the ring, I don't hate him, it's just business to me.”

Q: What about the Klitschkos? You were ready to fight Wladimir when he pulled out due to injury. Are they ducking you? Would you still like to fight him?

DC: “I want the brothers and, yes, they are ducking me. I've got to beat Helenius and get the European title so I can be in a position to fight Wlad or Vitali.”

Q: Is Helenius your stepping stone to Klitschko?

DC: “I look at him more as an obstacle in the road and he's got to be moved out of the way.”

Q: Why will you be better than in the Fury fight?

DC: “Because I've got the hunger back and I'm ready to do some damage. I'm training hard for this fight because I let myself down against Fury, I can beat Fury, I beat myself on that night.”

Q: “Finally, a message to the Finnish fans?

DC: “I'm sorry, but your boy is going down. But he'll come back, just not while I'm on the scene!”

If he comes in shape he has a decent chance...maybe. He should've beat Tyson Fury, but he came in way to big for that fight. If he does the same thing for this fight then I expect him to get…
