Huck-Afolabi, Helenius-Sprott Not Done, Not on For 3/2

By Ruslan Chikov

A source close to Sauerland Event has disputed the recent reports of a planned doubleheader for March 2nd, featuring a trilogy match between Marco Huck and Ola Afolabi and a heavyweight bout between Robert Helenius and Michael Sprott. Neither fight is done, said the source. And, in fact, Sauerland is planning to stage "something different" on the March 2 date.

A source close to Huck's camp stated: "We've seen a few reports today but they are not true. We've heard nothing about that fight for March 2. We believe the reports were drafted based on a Boxrec listing, which is poor journalism."

To be honest Helenius does need another tune up. The shoulder injury was bad and Robert is still missing some of the power and accuracy, so Sprott sounds like a good opponent to give him some tough rounds. Keep in…

It looks as if Helenius is moving in the wrong direction.
