Hopefully Cammarelle and his management realize to move him up quick, interesting to see what he'll do in the pros

Obviously great news about Helenius

I'm way more excited about Cammarelle tbh.

Something tells me Helenius' comeback might be short-lived, considering that was supposed to have been a career-ending injury and he's fast-tracked himself back into the ring. May just be cashing out.

Well, if the fights in February (As I suspect) it will be over a year after the Chisora-fight


Wlad - Camarelle early 2014

I'll believe when I see it.
Camarelle is a 3 (heck, 2 judging by his Olympic final bout) round fighter and at his age I don't see him develop to be able to fight 10, let alone 12, hard & tough rounds.

I agree! Helenius might be limited, but he can spark just about anyone.

Would like to see Helenius fight Price, or Fury...I doubt either man wants to meet Helenius in the ring.

Helenius is no Muhammad Ali, but he can have 2 or 3 good years left.

I think he would KO Chisora in a rematch. It's probably not going to happen though because Chisora wouldn't benefit from it.

He won the third, no doubt. It shouldn't have been close enough for him to make up.

It's true that he has some flaws(movement, foot speed,lack of jab), but still he's one of the very best out there. If he connects he can knock any man out so his very dangerous to every boxer out there.

I'd love to see him fight Fury or Price too.

Well, late twenties may still be infancy by heavyweight standards under normal circumstances, it's pretty clear that his body is breaking down prematurely. His bones are peanut brittle. He also faces a situation where the HW division is about to change drastically. It will no longer be "K2 and a bunch of scrubs", meaning there is room for someone with a bit of dynamite to easily punch their way to the top and become the #3 in the division and maybe hold a belt hostage.

I have a feeling the new crop, once it's matured, will be substantially improved over the current era's heavies (barring K2, who should be retiring soon, within that 2-3 year span)
