Sauerland Promises Chisora a Rematch With Helenius

Hartwall Arena, Helsinki, Finland - WBA/WBO Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion Robert Helenius (17-0, 11 KOs) clinched the vacant European Heavyweight Title with a split decision victory over Dereck Chisora (15-2, 9 KOs). Backed by his ferocious home fans, Helenius hurt Chisora with a big right in the first round to kick off an exciting encounter that featured a lot of close rounds. Two judges ruled it 115-113 for Helenius, while the third judge scored it 115-113 for Chisora

“This was the toughest fight of my life,” Helenius said after going the distance for the first time in his professional career. “I hurt my hand in the first round when I hit him and that affected me in the following rounds. The atmosphere was fantastic.”

Chisora disagreed with the verdict. “I won this fight, no doubt about it,” was amongst the things he said at the post-fight press conference. “I took the fight to him and I should have won.”

Hall of Fame Promoter Wilfried Sauerland said he will negotiate a rematch. “It was a lucky win for Robert,” he stated. “We will offer Chisora a rematch but first Robert has to make his mandatory defence against Dimitrenko.”

On the undercard, WBA/WBC/WBO Female Welterweight Champion Cecilia Braekhus (19-0, 5 KOs) defended her title collection with a tenth-round TKO victory over Kuulei Kupihea (7-2, 1 KO).

OMG I just looked at the punch stats, he even outjabbed Helenius. Chisora was two connected punches off of doubling Helenius' total landed punches. How has anybody scored this fight even close? The shorter boxer by about 5 inches landing…

I simply bet on Chisora to win. Which he did. But I see no return on my investment/bet as Sauerland decided to screw Chisora and put a loss on his record he never deserved. You could struggle to give helenius…

**** Arreola vs Klitschko. That's another boring mismatch. Bring on Arreola vs Chisora. I would guarantee it would be one of the best heavyweight fights in years.
