Teper Injured, Helenius To Now Face Franz Rill on 12/19

By Per Ake Persson

EBU heavyweight Erkan Teper is injured and unable to go through with the defence against Robert Helenius December 19 in Helsinki. 

To save the promotion with over 9000 tickets sold and PPV in both Finland and Germany the parties involved have with the approval from the EBU reached a solution that reads as follows: Teper relinquish the title and allow stablemate Franz Rill, who was lined up to fight Salvatore Erittu for the vacant EU title on the same show, to fight Helenius for the now vacant EBU title.
The winner of Helenius-Rill must fight Teper next. The winner of Helenius/Rill vs Teper must then fight current official challenger Dereck Chisora next.
As for Erittu, he might still get to fight for the EU title December 19 – if a suitable co-challenger can be found.

After Teper, Chisora? In my opinion should be the winner of Joshua-Whyte. Joshua declared he would like to win the EBU title after the British and Commonwealth titles.

[FONT="Arial"][B][COLOR="Blue"]Helenius certainly has had his share and more of injuries, cancellations, opponent switches, you name it. Hope he can get thru it all and back to his former self.[/COLOR][/B][/FONT]

I don't know anything about the opponent, but that doesn't mean he's no good. Helenius at this point is a big question mark. He could destroy this guy or get outboxed and outfoxed. Who knows? I have a gut feeling…

Franz was born in Canada. He will get crushed as his best win is a 8 rd decision over Paul Butlin... Ouch
