    Can Helenius repeat what he did to Kownacki or do you guys think that kownacki can handle Helenius in the rematch?

    I'm leaning towards Helenius cause styles make fights and Helenius is a good counterpuncher and Adam seems to use his face alot to block punches. Although Helenius engine is a big problem.

    Yeah, as you mentioned about Kownacki's poor defence, it gives him a good chance. I do give Kownacki a chance though, his combinations and decent power could correct his mistakes from the last fight. Still favouring Helenius KO7-9.

    If it goes past six, and I think it will, then Kownacki wins. UD Kownacki with Helenius knackered

    I’m getting Thompson-Price x2 vibes here, so, yes, I think he can do it again.

    If Kownacki shows he can’t make the necessary adjustments to beat Helenius, I don’t know what his options are.

    I thought the result of the first fight was a fluke. Just cannot see someone as limited and lazy as Helenius winning a second time around against Kownacki.

    In the rematch I fully expect Kownacki to smash Helenius leaving him on the canvas twitching inside 8 rounds.

    Interesting opinion. I really can't for the life of me see this going the distance.

    I think Helenius could become knackered, but he could also do a job on the pudding once again. I would say Helenius wins again by KO.

    It will be a fun fight to watch.

    I can't see Kownacki changing his game. He is who he is. He is either going to overwhelm Helenius or get knocked out trying.

    Both fighters that shouldn't be in top 20 regardless of opposition.. Hopefully Helenius smashes him again and retired.. Can't deal with all these trash hypejobs

    Helenius again for me. Kownackis chin isn't up for it, and his t-rex arms makes making "adjustments" very difficult.
    History will repeat itself with Kownacki being caught rushing in, and never recovering.

    I just think after a few rounds Kownacki will coast it without doing much, it'll be a snailfest as in neither fighter really does anything or comes out of their shell and both know their limitations. It'll be intriguing for the first few rounds, though.

    Kownacki will win this time, he'll be more cautious.

    Of course. Kownacki sucks. The result of the first fight was not a surprise to anyone who actually seriously follows and understands boxing.
