Robert Helenius Thrilled To Return in Helsinki on Nov. 10

Rising heavyweight star Robert Helenius (17-0, 11 KOs) will make his eagerly-anticipated comeback at Helsingin Jäähalli on November 10. The Nordic Nightmare will take on an opponent to be announced soon. “It´s great to be fighting again, my shoulder has healed well and I am perfectly fit,” Helenius said. “I am thrilled that my comeback will take place in Helsinki. The support was fantastic last time.”

After knocking out former world champions Lamon Brewster, Samuel Peter and Siarhei Liakhovich, Helenius became the European Heavyweight Champion in December 2011 following a close victory over Dereck Chisora in front of a sell-out crowd at Hartwall Areena. A shoulder injury, however, kept him from performing at his best that night, and after a lengthy injury break, the Nordic Nightmare has now fully recovered.

“Injuries are part of the game, there is nothing you can do about it, you just have to keep up your determination and continue to work hard,” Helenius stated. “That´s what I did. And now I am ready for my comeback. I don´t care who I will be fighting, I am a professional who wants to be the best in the world, so I have to beat anybody at any time.”

The fight will be part of the Nordic Fight Night, a newly-created fight series by Team Sauerland that features the very best of Nordic Boxing. In January 2012, Team Sauerland signed a long-term TV deal with Viasat Denmark, Viasat Norway and Viasat Sweden to stage between five and seven events per year in the Nordic region. “The Nordic Fight Night has been a huge success and we look forward to coming to Helsinki,” promoter Nisse Sauerland said.

“The atmosphere was amazing when Robert fought at Hartwall Areena last December and it will be no different this time out. Robert has to prove something after his injury break and I expect him to master this test in style.”

Team Sauerland sports director Hagen Doering is close to finalising details with the opponent. “It´s not easy to find somebody who wants to get in the ring with Robert,” he said. “A lot of fighters simply fear his punching power. We are looking at several options and we are close to signing a deal.”

Tickets for the Nordic Fight Night go on sale today at www.lippupalvelu.fi . The Helenius fight will be shown 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. More details will be announced soon. The undercard will feature the biggest talents in Scandinavian boxing, including Danish WBA Intercontinental Middleweight Champion Patrick Nielsen (16-0, 8 KOs), Danish 2012 Olympian Dennis Ceylan (1-0, 1 KO), Norwegian WBA International Featherweight Champion Andreas Evensen (16-2-1, 6 KOs), unbeaten Swedish light heavyweight Erik Skoglund (12-0, 6 KOs) as well as Pekka Maki´s upcoming Finnish fighters, which will be announced shortly.
