He will amount to nothing. Forget about him.
Great post.

So should I be enlightened or something now?

I'm going to frame this on my wall. Sort of like one of those "stupidest things ever said" things. "C level Bum". Helenius.

Power's all he's got, eh? How about chin? Got one of those? Counter punch? Any good at that? Knows how to use his height to advantage? Does he? Killing instinct? Has he got any of that?

C level Bum. Helenius. This was the post of the year.

Good argument but unfortunately somewhat irrelevant in the heavyweight division as all you need is a chin and power to go far.

Disagree with the bold. Helenius allows shorter fighters to work on the inside way too much, and is not assertive enough with his jab.

Looking forward to who Briggs fights in UAE, Dubai. Darell Madison called him out, but Briggs was said to have been looking for someone much more well known with a promoter who would give him options.

Could Briggs be looking to cash out as a Sauerland stepping stone?
