Really amusing read...I don't know who wrote it, but very enjoyable. Helenius should be cancelled like the Vikings TV show, which is going into its final season.

Helenius at this moment is just a washed up guy. He beat Chisora by split decision but that was 8 years ago. He looked like complete trash against Washington.
