Helenius vs Dimitrenko Purse Bid Deadline on Oct. 31

By Per Ake Persson

Frenchman Jean Marc Mormeck has officially left his position as the mandatory challenger for EBU heavyweight champ Alexander Dimitrenko (32-1, 21KOs). Mormeck faces unified champion Wladimir Klitschko on December 10.
 
Now "Nordic Nightmare" Robert Helenius (16-0, 11KOs) is in the position as the mandatory challenger for Dimitrenko. EBU have set October 31 as the deadline for purse offers.
 
A Dimitrenko vs Helenius fight is effectively also a world title eliminator and an exciting matchup. It´s rumored, but not confirmed, that Dimitrenko already has an offer to fight Helenius in Helsinki on December 3.

Dimitrenko will never fight Helenius, Chambers took his soul and wiped the ring with it.
