Robert Helenius, a heavyweight boxer, has been regarded as a possible opponent for WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
Helenius recently defeated Adam Kownacki.
Last year’s rematch was a WBA eliminator, and the Nordic fighter has provided the regulatory body information that he wants to be the compulsory challenger to current WBA champion Oleksandr Usyk, who will also fight Anthony Joshua in a rematch in the next few months.
Helenius while talking to Skysports said
On March 26, Fury is set to step into the ring.
Dillian Whyte is the champion’s obligatory challenger, but the opposing sides are still finding it difficult to strike an agreement.
A WBC purse auction is set for January 18 at present.
If Whyte pulls back from the fight, Helenius may be selected to face Fury.
