Robert Helenius Will Now Face Orlov, Braekhus Back on Oct. 21

By Per Ake Persson

Finnish heavyweight Robert Helenius will now face Russian giant Evgeny Orlov (21-17-1) tomorrow night in Tallin (Estonia) and not Brit Ian Lewison as was planned.

The story is that there were people waiting for Lewison at the airport in Tallinn but he didn´t show up with the official reason given that he didn´t get a fight permit from the British Boxing Board of Control - but there is no answer to why that was (yet). Orlov will arrive tonight from Moscow.

Also from Finland on the bill are light heavyweights Timo Laine and Dayron Lester.

This fight went from a mandatory spot against Chisora to Ian Lewison to Orlov. The Helenius/Chisora rematch should have been an eliminator at best as the winner should of had to face Whyte who also had a fight cancelled. Too…
