GETEC Arena, Magdeburg, Germany - Heavyweight contender Robert “The Nordic Nightmare” Helenius (19-0, 11 KOs) had to work hard to secure a ten round unanimous decision over British upset-artist Michael Sprott (37-20, 17 KOs). The scores were 98-93, 97-93 and 98-92.

Eddie Hearn's recently signed super middleweight contender, George Groves (18-0, 14 KOs), continues to stay very active with a second round stoppage of Baker Barakat (37-14-4, 25 KOs).

Helenius might be done as a top heavyweight. Time will tell.

Helenius used to have the best skullet p4p in boxing... Now he got a haircut and is just a face in the crowd...

Helenius looked poor last night but to be fair, he didn't need to get out of 1st gear that how poor Sprott was last night. I think if he pushed a bit harder it would have been an interesting fight.…
