Deontay Wilder v Robert Helenius Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions

Deontay Wilder has not been in the ring since he lost to Tyson Fury for the WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles last October.

The Bronze Bomber had not tasted defeat until he faced Fury for a second time in February 2020. He was the world champion and he had won 42 professional fights and had one draw. -against Fury in their first clash.

He thought he was unbeatable – and against most boxers he probably is. He has won 41 of his 45 fights by way of knockout and has only gone the distance once in his career. That was against Bermane Stiverne in January 2015.

Wilder lost a lot of respect after his second fight with Fury when he claimed the Gypsy King cheated, his cornerman shouldn’t have thrown in the towel and his walk-on suit was too heavy.

Their third and final contest was an amazing fight. There were five knockdowns altogether with Fury stopping Wilder in the 11th to retain his belt.

Wilder still believes he is a world champion. He feels he should be getting title opportunities rather than eliminator bouts against the likes of Robert Helenius.

Helenius is known as The Nordic Nightmare and he has a professional record of 34 fights, 31 wins and three defeats.

He has been in the ring with the likes of Dillian Whyte, Michael Sprott, Derek Chisora and Lamon Brewster, but he has never faced anyone like The Bronze Bomber.

Wilder will be keen to put on an explosive display and claim his 42nd knockout victim. Helenius will stand to-to-toe for the opening few rounds, but I expect Wilder to bomb him out inside five rounds.

Deontay Wilder v Robert Helenius Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions: Fighter's Predictions

Deontay Wilder: “I’ve been training very, very hard, and I’ve been doing things I’ve never done before. No limitations on me. I thought I was in shape, but this is real true shape. I can’t wait until October 15th, me versus Robert Helenius. It’s going to be an amazing fight. Right now, we’re trying to cool down things. I’m way ahead of time. We’re trying to figure out how to ease things down, so we don’t suffer any injuries. I’m a man of my word. I put my heart out, and I fight with my heart. So, I’m willing to go through the fire with whatever I believe in. I die for what I believe in, and for me, the biggest lesson of all is not having limitations. I’m looking forward to displaying and continuing with my knockouts and giving the fans what they want to see. I’m back; the excitement is going to continue, and I’m looking forward to doing bigger and better things with the second reign until the end.”
