Robert Helenius vs. Yury Bykhautsou Rematch Set For August 11

By Per Ake Persson

Swedish light heavyweight Oscar Ahlin (14-2) returns to action after a year out, and he will fight Georgian veteran Gary Abayan on Saturday (July 7) in Madrid. Ahlin, an excellent talent, is no longer with Team Sauerland and has signed with Maravilla Box.

Oscar might still make it but has had long layoffs due to injuries and in the two losses, against Patrick Mendy and Bernard Donfack, he showed a certain hesitation in fighting back when the going got tough.
...

Heavyweight Robert "the Nordic Nightmare" Helenius (26-2) will take on Yury Bykhautsou (10-16-3) on August 11 in Savonlinna (Finland) reports boxing.fi. This is a rematch and in the first fight Helenius broke his right hand and put on an overall flat performance.

 Helenius vows to do better this time  against an opponent who is a tough fighter but the type a contender wannabe needs to get past.

 Helenius vs Bykhautsou goes ahead on a pro-am show topped by Edis Tatli´s defence of the EBU lightweight title against Marvin Petit.

Always have liked Helenius, even if he's injured alot and fans grind on him a bunch. If he'd stayed healthy all those years he would've been right up there in the top 10.

Helenius is so far done that he needs to rematch a journeyman. Lol
