Heavyweight prospect Robert Helenius (15-0, 10KOs) became a serious threat on Saturday after a ninth round knockout of former heavyweight champion Samuel Peter. Promotional company Sauerland Event are going to take their time in grooming Helenius, but one fight they would like to make is with European champion Alexander Dimitrenko (31-1, 21KOs).

Promoter Wilfried Sauerland said - "I did not want this fight [with Sam Peter], but matchmaker Hagen Doering and trainer Ulli Wegner persuaded me to put Peter is against Helenius. We want to build Robert the right way. He is still young, and we have time. Next, we would like to go after the European Championship held by Dimitrenko. Robert's chances to win are very good."

[QUOTE=Alec900]I have a feeling Alexander doesn't want this fight[/QUOTE] It woundn't be a wise career move for Dimitrenko. Right now, as European titleholder and with the win over Sosnowski, he'd be a good choice for one of the Klitschkos as a voluntary title defense. It would be a good ...
