    It's a stretch calling the guys he's stopped contenders. Hes a very tough guy, fun to watch but hes not going to trouble anyone in the top 15

    50/50 ko either way. Helenius' chin and gas tank are atrocious but he throws hard straight shots. Kownacki has god awful defense and blocks with his face, but his chin is solid and he can punch all night.

    Fury would NEVER get in the ring with the Pole. Kownacki would knock Fury back in time to when Gypsies
    were Gypsies and not just trailer trash.

    dumb move on Helenius's part.
    he should have capitalized on the win and got himself a bigger fight with a better payday.
    kornacki will get him in the rematch. he had too many distractions first time around.
    Honestly hilllenius vs Fury would have been a more interesting fight than anyone Fury has fought outside of Wilder

    Should be a fun fight, could go either way.

    Kownacki is no special talent but fun to watch.

    Helenius has that big man barely touches but hurts & slowly breaks you down type power.

    Kowanacki looks like he hasn't been born yet...so yeah he could probably beat Fury.

    Not born of a woman = Can beat Fury.

    Which heavyweight was a c-section if we are going by Macbeth rules?

    Who is left for Wilder to fight in jan/ feb now then realistically if Helenius isnt fighting him?

    Best is probably Charles Martin.

    a lot are touting Kownackis chin here... But he's worn a lot of leather and was just stopped. Very possible he'll be more susceptible to being stopped from here on out.

    The Nordic Nightmare knocks his head loose once more, and puts the The Brooklyn Doughboy down again, but this time he'll stay down.

    Martin and Washington are fine, they're considered top 20 and 25 usually, that should be enough to have made him a fringe contender.

    If Kownacki hasn't lost anything I'd pick him, but that's a big iff. Some high risk fighters like that really decline after they've been KOed.

    Kownacki was well on the way to beating him last time, so I don't see why people think Helenius had his number.

    Slightly more than that these days.
    Martin did have a belt at one time. He destroyed Washington. What has Ortiz done to be relatively more regarded? Ko'd 2X by Wilder? :thinking:
