    So they found a replacement for Chisora who cowardly ducked the Nordic Nightmare.

    The winner of this fight will likely face Wilder next.

    Helenius is bum who got his ass kicked by Wilders opponet french pastry chief. Don't see much left in Helenius.

    Helenius has lost a lot of weight and is in the best shape of his life. Recently he got diagnosed with a medical condition that has affected his performance the last couple of years. That is now fixed.
    There is a high chance that you are going to see a whole new and better Helenius henceforward.
    Ducking Helenius was the best career move Chisora has made.

    Helenius' father actually had very convincing explanation for the loss. They had chosen soft gloves to protect Robert's glass knuckles but only later did they realize that his punches will also be softer. Pastry chef probably felt like he was in a pillow fight.

    Think the winner gets a shot at Toney for the WBF in a Detroit super fight !

    How do you know it was Chisora who ducked?

    Lewison can punch a bit an has some skill... Wouldn't be surprised if he pulled the upset, all depends on what kind of shape he's in. Helenius has no power, nothing to keep him honest. He's going to have to use his size and range to win this one on points or maybe stop a gassed Lewison late. Not a terrible fight all things considered... This is the kind of level Helenius is operating at this point of his career, Chisora probably would have finished off what was left of him.

    Yeah and he looked good before the tire around his midsection start to take it's toll... Whyte is much better than this version of Helenius.... I give Lewison at least a 40% chance of winning this fight.

    Another Sherman Williams type fight, pretty pointless.

    It's a good scrap considering the situation Robert's team was left after Chisora pulled out. Remember this fight is happening next week.

    Whyte's credibility is on the line in this match. If Helenius KTFO's Lewinson in early rounds, it will make Whyte look bumlicious.
