Undefeated heavyweights Robert Helenius (21-0) and Adrian Granat (8-0) are both to be sparring partners for WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO world champion Wladimir Klitschko as he prepares for the fight against mandatory challenger Tyson Fury on October 24 in Duesseldorf.

Both heavyweights bring the height and weight to compare with Fury although neither are similar in style.

Helenius, the Nordic Nightmare, is in training for his fight December 19 against EBU champion Erkan Teper, while Granat might have a fight coming up later in October.
