Out of the two choosing Bidenko is definitely the wiser choice. Helenius is the Sauerland fighter on the Sauerland card so he is supposed to win this. Bidenko is the "opponent", so even if he is better, he has to win in very convincing fashion to get the decision and he won't stop Helenius unless Helenius is really china-chinned. A Brewster match-up is much more unpredicable because even if Brewster loses every minute of the fight, he can still turn things around with 1-2 punches. A knockout loss to Brewster would be much more damaging for Helenius' career than a decision loss to Bidenko which is rather unlikely.
Truly spoken,nbt!

Brewster is a very wayward and unpredictable fighter at this stage of his career.You are also right in saying that ko loss would be far more damaging for Helenius' career than a point defeat at this hands of such a heralded fighter like Bidenko.
Good points,nbt!
