The Nordic Nightmare, Robert Helenius have posted a photo on his Instagram where he is posing with Nathan Gorman at his gym in Mariehamn (Finland). Helenius is preparing for a showdown against Adam Kownacki March 7 and bringing in a guy like Gorman who´s got good hand speed might help Helenius.

Roberto prepared for Gerald Washington sparring with the likes of Alexander Ustinov and Gunnar Kolbein Kristinisson - both men not known for speed and the result was a bad ko loss.

Tough French heavyweight veteran Johann Duhaupas (38-5) has his next fight lined up in March against an opponent to be announced. Duhaupas beat Luis Pascual in October of last year in his first fight since losing to Jarrell Miller in April 2018.
