Helenius vs Chisora in Play For December 3rd Showdown

by Per Ake Persson

BoxingScene.com has been advised that undefeated Robert Helenius (16-0, 11KOs) will face Brit Dereck Chisora (15-1, 9KOs) on December 3rd in Helsinki with the vacant EBU heavyweight title at stake, which ends weeks of speculation on who would be the opponent for the unbeaten Finnish/Swedish heavyweight.
 
The late, in fact very late notice, is explained by the fact that Chisora, a loser to Tyson Fury earlier this year, had to have a win in his last fight in order to be eligible to compete for the EBU title. This past Friday, Dereck secured the necessary win when he beat Lithuanian journeyman Remigius Ziausys.
 
Alexander Dimitrenko, who previously held the title, was stripped of the belt because he's unable to fight in the next three months due to injury. There appears to have been quite a power struggle behind it as purse bids were scheduled twice for Dimitrenko vs Helenius, and then postponed.
 
There are already 6,000 tickets sold for Sauerland´s and P 3 Boxing´s show at the Hartwall Arena - and most fans are there to see the Nordic Nightmare in action.

Helenius is gunna pick chisora apart with his size and reach much like fury did. But helenius is better at it then fury is i think this is gunna be quite a mismatch

I dont see anything special in Helenius, he's very static. Chisora can cause him problems

Helenius is nothing special. This would be a good fight.

Helenius is way too much for Del Boy. He's going to rip Chisora's head from his shoulders.
