Teper-Helenius is a Hot Ticket, New Record Expected

By Per Ake Persson

When Robert Helenius controversially outscored Dereck Chisora late 2011 at the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, there was a crowd of 12,734 spectators – an indoor record for professional boxing in Finland.

However, with seven weeks to go for Helenius' fight against EBU heavyweight champion Erkan Teper at the same venue, on December 19th, there has already been 7,500 tickets sold and a new record is expected.

Helenius is currently in Austria sparring with heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko, who is preparing for his scheduled defense against Tyson fury on November 28.

After finishing up with Klitschko's camp, Helenius will then do an exhibition against Timur Musafarov in Tallinn (Estonia) on November 14 before continuing training for the Teper fight.

[QUOTE=BostonGuy;16222544]This is such an uninformed and inaccurate post, I'm not sure where to start. Have you watched any Robert Helenius' fights, or are you just basing your opinion on the Chisora fight? The Chisora fight - he had an off…

I thought Chisora beat Helenius but you can't ignore the fact Chisora was beating on a guy who essentially only had one good working arm to fight with... Even Chris Byrd could beat up Vitali when that was the case,…

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK;16212861]Yeah and Vitali sold it on the fact that Chisora was robbed blind against Helenius who is simply an awful boxer.[/QUOTE] This is such an uninformed and inaccurate post, I'm not sure where to start. Have you watched…
