Frank Warren: Chisora Will Have Helenius' Number Again

Promoter Frank Warren has called for an immediate rematch between Dereck Chisora and Robert Helenius after the Englishman's controversial defeat in the heavyweight title bout in Helsinki.

Warren was left fuming over "one of the worst decisions I've seen in the sport" after Chisora failed in his bid for the vacant European Heavyweight title, despite dominating his German opponent.

Two judges gave it to Helenius with scores of 115-113, while one judge scored it in Chisora's favour with a score of 115-113.

Respected trainer Freddie Roach branded the decision "just terrible", and Warren has vowed to lobby the European Boxing Union (EBU) in a bid to force a rematch.

"I know that sometimes I have a moan about decisions, but what happened on Saturday night in Helsinki was one of the worst decisions I've seen in the sport in a very long time," Warren said.

"I don't know how Helenius can hold his head up high and claim that he won the fight when he knows he lost.

"Helenius was supposed to be the next big thing and the man to challenge the Klitschkos, but Dereck totally exposed him and I'm being generous to give Helenius four winning rounds in the fight.

"I'll be speaking to the EBU as well as the other organisations about an immediate rematch which is the only course of redress for this injustice to Dereck.

"Dereck really proved that he is one of the top heavyweights in the world and he'll have Helenius' number when they meet again."

Chisora certainly appeared to shade the bout against the towering Helenius - regarded by some as the best heavyweight outside of the Klitschko brothers - by staying the busier of the two.

He worked well on the body and was unfortunate to be warned by the referee for use of the head, with his only real downfall being a lack of clean punches to the face.

Helenius did less than that, failing to get through Chisora's guard and struggling to impose his size upon the smaller fighter.

[QUOTE=gingeralbino;11516087]it was a damn good fight but i dont think anyone was surprised the right man didnt win. Although i was quite surprised how close the scores were. On another note, how about Chisora v Gerber? Now that Gerber fight…
