Via Robert Segal: Deontay Wilder could lose next month’s comeback match to Robert Helenius in their October 15 headline on FOX Sports pay-per-view, promoter Eddie Hearn said.
While Hearn views former WBC heavyweight champion Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs) as the favorite over Helenius 6’6 ″ (31-3, 20 KOs), he has no confidence in the possibility. the boxing prowess of ‘The Bronze Bomber. ‘
Wilder’s three fights against Tyson Fury have definitely changed Hearn’s perception of his abilities, so now he doesn’t know what to expect from him in a fight with the ranker. heavy Helenius.
It would be a good idea if Wilder were to return to the ring against a less formidable opponent than Helenius, given that he is about to get a year’s layoff, and consecutive losses to Fury.
Wilder hasn’t won a game in three years since his win over Luis Ortiz in 2019. Ortiz won the first six rounds before Wilder beat him with a big shot in the seventh inning to knock him out.
“It was a good fight. We had Helenius. Derek Chisora defeated Helenius very easily. Dillian Whyte won every round against Helenius,” Eddie Hearn told Against TV Hub about Deontay Wilder’s next match against Robert Helenius on October 15.
“His two wins over Adam Kownacki probably glorified him a bit. You’ve seen that Adam looks like he’s in the late stages of his career, but he still has a little bit of fire in it.
“Robert Helenius was a big man. He’s 6’7″ or whatever he is. He gets hit a bit. I think he can surrender under pressure. Anyone would be under Deontay Wilder.
“I found Wilder to be my favorite in the war, but it’s definitely a fight he could lose because I’m still not sold on Deontay Wilder about his all-round boxing ability, but he’s a great boxer,” Hearn said.
Wilder’s recent weight loss and his cardio training could help him improve enough to produce Helenius in the first rounds on October 15 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Before Wilder put a lot of weight in the last two fights against Fury, he was dangerous and his conditioning was top-notch.
“He was so excited and brilliant for the weight class. I expected him to win, but it was an undefeated fight for Robert Helenius,” Hearn said.
