Wilder-Helenius officially October 15th
Former World Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs) returns to the ring on October 15 at the Premier Boxing Champions tournament at the Barclays Center in New York. The rival of the "Bronze Bomber" will be Robert Helenius (31-3, 20 KOs).
For the 36-year-old Wilder, this will be a return to the ring after two losses to Tyson Fury and the loss of the WBC championship belt. The last time the American boxed was in October.
In the last two fights, Helenius won against Adam Kownacki. In the past, the Finn, who recently turned down an eliminator for the WBA belt with Hughie Fury, has come to spar with Wilder more than once. The evening of boxing will be shown in the United States in a paid broadcast on the FOX TV channel.
