    • I think Gerald Washington made him feel what a human punching bag feels like. Helenius is a tall fighter and is very imposing when you see him. However, he does not utilize his body mechanics well as a fighter and seems stiff, robotic at times, does not embrace lateral movement that much for defense. I personally think his career as a heavyweight fighter is limited unless he makes some serious changes.

      • Helenius is 35 and running out of time. I think he’s too old to make the necessary cahnges. I doubt he will be able to break into the top 15 anymore, regardless of what he may or may not want to try :))

  • Helenius used to be tough and dangerous, now he sadly looks washed up. Never got back into form again.
