Photos: Helenius, Braekhus Workouts For Helsinki Card

The Nordic Nightmare Robert Helenius (16-0, 11 KOs) and The First Lady Cecilia Braekhus (18-0, 4 KOs) today participated in a media work-out at the P3 Boxing Gym in Helsinki, Finland. On December 3, Helenius will clash with Dereck Chisora (15-1, 9 KOs) for the vacant European Heavyweight Title, while Braekhus will put her WBA/WBC/WBO female welterweight titles on the line against Kuulei Kupihea (7-1, 2 KOs). “It´s good to be back home,” Helenius said. “We have trained very hard in Germany. We will use the last days to get ready mentally and physically. It will be a difficult fight but with Ulli Wegner in my corner nothing can go wrong.”

Just like Helenius, Braekhus is also determined to keep her unbeaten record. “To this day I have defeated everybody who has tried to take my titles away from me,” she said. “Saturday will be no different. I am prepared for a tough fight. I will leave the ring as the winner.”

 

WBA Heavyweight Champion Alexander Povetkin and challenger Cedric Boswell will meet the press tomorrow. Some 10,000 tickets have already been sold for the show. “We expect a sell-out crowd of 12,000 fans on Saturday,” Team Sauerland sports director Hagen Doering said. “We are thrilled that Robert can count on the full backing of his home fans for what will be the toughest fight of his career.”
