Robert Helenius is Again Sidelined With a Hand Injury

By Per Ake Persson

Heavyweight Robert Helenius, 19-0, is again sidelined with a hand injury and according to news from boxen.com, Sauerland´s website, Helenius must rest his right hand for six weeks. However, there are rumors of the injury being more serious, but members of the fighter's team are denying this.
 
There must also be questions asked to when the hand was injured. Anyone who saw Helenius' fight with Michael Sprott on March 23 in Magdeburg could tell that this wasn´t the Nordic Nightmare that stopped the likes of Sergey Liakhovich, Samuel Peter or Lamont Brewster and he didn´t use his devastating right hand at any time during the fight against Sprott.

Sprott even stated afterwards that Helenius´ stablemate Edmund Gerber punches harder than Robert - something most experts would dispute. The Nordic Nightmare himself confirmed after the fight that he had problems with the right hand and said it was fine in training but hurting during fights and that he needed more treatment and therapy.

Well f-ck you haters. True, Helenius has been a disappointment since Liakhovich fight, but it must be kind of difficult to fight with injuries, especially when it´s his best weapon that´s missing.
