Robert Helenius Blasts Liakhovich in The Ninth Round
By Alexey Sukachev
Erfurt, Germany - Rising heavyweight star Robert Helenius (16-0, 11KOs) knocked out former WBO champion Sergei Liakhovich (25-4, 16KOs) in the ninth round. At the time of the stoppage, Helenius was winning on the official cards by way of a split decision, with scores of 77-74 and 76-75 for Helenius and 76-75 on the third for Liakhovich.
Liakhovich did not arrive to Germany to lay down. He gave it his all, swelling the face of Helenius in the early rounds and digging to the head and body. Liakhovich was having problems breathing with a possible broken nose, with Helenius taking over the fight with hard punches to the former champion's face.
In the eight round, Helenius began to batter Liakhovich with hard punches to send him down to his knees in the final twenty seconds. Liakhovich made it up before the bell.
At the start of the ninth, Helenius unloaded on Liakhovich with massive shots to send him down for a second time. The referee stopped the fight as Liakhovich's corner threw in the towel at the same time.

Would like to see Hellenius fight one of the top American HW's next, not the Klits. He still has to develop, but no doubt we are looking at a warrior here. A fight with Haye would be a blast, heh…Comment by Cloud on 08-28-2011
