Helenius vs Liakhovich Rumors Continue To Circulate

By Per Ake Persson

It is claimed that one signature is on the contract while another is about to sign but for now it is only a rumor that Finnish-Swedish heavyweight Robert Helenius will take on in his next fight - the White Wolf, former WBO heavyweight champion Sergey Liakhovich.
 
Promotional firm Sauerland Event had previously announced a Helenius fight as co-headliner on a show on June 25, but he now appears to be heading to show in Munich on July 16 - but again nothing is confirmed.
 
EBU light heavyweight champ Eduard Gutknecht will, according to the EBU website, make a voluntary defense on the previously mentioned July date, in Munich, which appears to be a good sign.
