Helenius' Star Power Pushing Helsinki Card To a Sellout

By Per Ake Persson

Sauerland, P 3 Boxing and Live Nation are looking at a smashing success Saturday at the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki. There´s 9,800 tickets sold for the nine bout card which means that the previous record for indoor boxing - 9,999 tickets sold for Amin Asikainen vs Khoren Gevor - will break.
 
Fact is that the promoters are now expecting a sold out venue with 12,000 spectators - and this is mainly due to the Nordic Nightmare, Robert Helenius, who is about to hit superstar status in Finland. Helenius faces Dereck Chisora for the vacant EBU heavyweight title and his WBA and WBO I/C belts are also at stake.
 
Alexander Povetkin headlines with a defense of the WBA regular heavyweight title against Cedric Boswell.

On the undercard, German heavyweight Edmund Gerber will now face American Marcus McGee and Swedish light heavyweight Erik Skoglund returns after a six month injury layoff.
