On October 15, Brooklyn will be the place to be as Deontay Wilder and Robert Helenius square off at Barclays Center for a chance to win the heavyweight championship.
2008 saw the professional debut of Wilder. He defeated Bermane Stiverne to win the WBC heavyweight championship in 2015. It was his first victory in 33 fights and came by unanimous decision. A draw versus Tyson Fury occurred in the middle of Wilder’s ten title defence.
In a rematch in February 2020, Wilder was defeated by TKO by Fury. Fury stopped Wilder in the 11th round of their trilogy bout in October to keep the WBC championship.
Helenius debuted as a professional in 2008. In his previous nine fights, the former heavyweight champion of Europe is 7-2. In November of same year, he defeated Mateus Roberto Osorio after falling to Gerald Washington in July. Helenius defeated Adam Kownacki by TKO in the final significant boxing match before the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, which was regarded as an unexpected result.
The most recent match for Helenius was a rematch with Kownacki in October 2021. Again, Helenius defeated him via TKO.
