Robert Helenius Takes on Sherman Williams on Nov. 10

Robert Helenius (17-0, 11 KOs) will take on Sherman “The Tank” Williams (35-11-2, 19 KOs) at Helsingin Jäähalli on November 10.

“It´s a done deal,” Nordic Fight Night promoter Nisse Sauerland confirmed. “The contracts have been signed, the Tank is coming to Finland! This is going to be a tough test for Robert in his comeback. Williams is experienced, rugged and strong. But for Robert to make an impact at the world level, he has to get rid of everyone. With the help of his fantastic Finnish fans, I am sure that he will break down the Tank and continue his winning streak.”

Williams, ranked 10th by the WBO, boasts the experience of 49 fights. He has been in the ring with the likes of Evander Holyfield, Ruslan Chagaev and Manuel Charr to name but a few. After a no decision against the Real Deal in January 2011, he defeated Chauncy Welliver on points in June this year. He has big ambitions for his trip to Helsinki.

“I look forward to coming to Finland and defeat Helenius in front of his home fans. What´s a Nightmare compared to a Tank,” Williams said. “I am humbled and thank God for the opportunity. I am a warrior by nature. My whole life I have been strong and powerful, that is why my ring name is Tank. Robert is a good fighter and he has my respect. The fight will be one that fans will remember. I am coming to fight.”

And he added: “This will be like David fighting Goliath. I am David, a true warrior. A shorter fighter fighting a big tall giant. The bigger the giant, the harder they fall!”

After an 11-month injury break, Helenius is eager to get back into the ring for some real boxing action. “This will be an exciting fight,” the Nordic Nightmare said. “Williams has proven his class in a lot of battles, he is strong and rugged, but he will not leave Finland victorious. I am taller, I am stronger and I am better. The Tank will crash in Helsinki on November 10!”

The Helenius-Williams clash will be televised exclusively as a pay-per-view event on Viasat's Viaplay service, while the rest of the Nordic Fight Night will be shown on the Nelonen Pro channels.
