Helenius Settles Sauerland Dispute, Eyes Return

By Per Ake Persson

The Nordic Nightmare, Robert Helenius, 19-0, has begun sparring for a planned comeback in early 2014. Helenius and his new team have also settled the contractual dispute with Team Sauerland and according to Chris Meyer they are now discussing a co-promotion deal.

Helenius is now trained by his father Kalle and will fight out of Finland. Robert has had only two fights since December of 2011 when he won a controversial points win over Dereck Chisora but suffered bad hand and shoulder injuries.

Chisora was robbed of a victory but I also feel that Helenius could have won had he not broken his hand in the 1st round. Not sure whether his hand will recover bit I'd love to see a rematch....
